Christina Aguilera messes up 'Star-Spangled Banner' lyrics at Super Bowl XLV




Continuing her rich tradition of waging a scorched-earth campaign against her own career, Christina Aguilera really bit the bag while singing the national anthem during Sunday's Super Bowl.

Instead of singing "o'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming," Xtina warbled "what so proudly we watched at the twilight's last gleaming." And here we thought Slash singing with Fergie would be the big talker of the day.

Twitter users, especially, weren't kind to Aguilera, who flubbed the line in front of her hometown Steelers. She even managed to become a trending topic for a spell. That's what happens when you oversing every note of the darn song, kids.
