The Remix: Christina Aguilera Screws Up “The Star-Spangled Banner” Lyrics At Super Bowl 2011
No, your ears are not deceiving you. Christina Aguilera just made up her own version of the “Star-Spangled Banner” at the 2011 Super Bowl XLV in Arlington, Texas. In her defense, our national anthem is often messed up and she played the mistake off quite well.
In case you missed it, we’ve got video and the actual lyrics, which are based on a poem by Francis Scott Key. Poor Christina—first a divorce, now this. SMH/LOL.
The Star-Spangled Banner
O! say can you see by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;
O! say does that star-spangled banner yet wave,
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
