Christina Aguilera Responds to National Anthem Fumble

Christina Aguilera has responded to the discussion over her fumble of the lyrics to the National Anthem during her performance at the Super Bowl on Sunday (February 6).

WATCH: Christina Aguilera perform the National Anthem at Super Bowl XLV

” I got so caught up in the moment of the song that I lost my place,” Christina shared in a statement to JustJared.com. “I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through.”

Instead of singing the line “o’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming,” Christina sang “what so proudly we watched at the twilight’s last gleaming.”

WHAT DID YOU THINK of Christina’s National Anthem performance?

    That was so totally disrespectful. We are at war and she did not even take the time to do her homework, practice, and do it right. I had 3 students of mine who nailed that presentation at a 3d rate baseball game. No respect, she should hang her head in shame. Nerves? No way, she is supposed to be a professional and well paid, I might add. Could we maybe go back to a traditional singing and also a try-out? No excuse for this one, no excuse.

    How many great singers sings it this live and mess up? None as big as Christina. I mean, only all in America was watching and then the next hour on youtube…

    There is NO EXCUSE for screwing up the National Anthem as bad as Christina Aguilera did, she forgot an entire part of it.
    I agree this Superbowl was very lame, well except for Sam Elliott announcing the teams, and that VOICE, I just love him, he still looks GOOD!

    What an honor for her to sing, I would like to see the ones who can so easily give her such negative feedback get up there in front of millions of people and not get nervous and sing perfect. We have more to worry about then her innoncent mistake of singing the national anthem a lyric wrong!!! Good for you Christine you sing awesome and I enjoyed hearing you !

    African-American slaves fought during the Civil War and some even during the war for Independence. They are part of the fabric of this country. “Negro” spirituals sum up the pain, glory and the past of American history. So the national anthem can be sung in gospel just like it would be ok to sing it in a Cherokee style melody – these two groups are the backbone of really hard labor in America – the Native Americans and African-Americans. SO the issue is not gospel BUT the issue is Christina Aguilera pretending her fake plastic self has the heart and soul to sing such deep notes. I mean Jimmi Hendrix did an instrumental of the national anthem and it is probably the greatest rendition of any anthem I have ever heard. You can interpret an anthem but do it with heart, talent and soul not this HOT MESS. She is full of herself and may this be her lesson that she needs a reality check.

    I would have to agree that she has talent but of all songs to mess up, this is the worst. Everyone should know this song. She tried to change the whole style of the National Anthem. She cared more about her own “sound” then the meaning of the song she was singing. It had nothing to do with being “nervous”. She got carried away.
