Christina Aguilera helped kick off Sunday’s Super Bowl, hitting all the right notes during her pre-Super Bowl performance of the national anthem.
Standing at midfield at Texas’ Cowboys Stadium, the singer-actress mixed a previously sung clause with the one she was supposed to be on, as tens of millions prepared to watch the game between the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Here’s what she sang, with the error in bold:
“O say can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hail’d at the twilight’s last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight
What so proudly we watched at the twilight’s last.”
Aguilera tried to make up for it by combining two lines — “What so proudly we watched,” instead of “What so proudly we hailed”.
