Super Bowl XLV: Christian Aguilera Sings National Anthem In 1:54, Messes Up Lyrics


↵

Singing the national anthem at the Super Bowl is a real honor that many people use to show how awesome their voice is. Christina Aguilera was no exception at Super Bowl XLV. The Rochester, Penn., native belted out the anthem like only she can, with exaggerated notes (over six seconds on "brave!") throughout.

The only problem? She didn't get the words right. If you listen to the video, you see that she says the phrase "what so proudly we hailed" twice, when it should have been "O'er the ramparts we watched" the second time. The Green Bay Packers players were confused, as they should have been. Come on Christina. At least get the words right.

↵

To her credit, she did complete the anthem in one minute and 54 seconds, according to SBNation.com. The prop bet for anthem length was 1:54, which means Aguilera nailed it right on the nose. At least she did something right on the anthem.
