It’s a mortal fear of singers far and wide to experience the embarrassment of botching the national anthem, but time and time again under the massive pressure of tons of fans and viewers, singers even as seasoned as Christina Aguilera make the mistake of screwing up the lyrics. Watch as Aguilera does just that, but pulls it off so convincingly that no one noticed at first!

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