Unforgivable Singing Acts of Treason

What other topic is less than interesting than the error made by Christina Aguilera last night at the Superbowl?  We've probably all heard (or at least heard OF) someone making an idiot of themselves by misquoting the Star Spangled Banner...but at the Superbowl?  And by someone of Aguilera's status with 5 Grammys?  Obviously a treat to see.  Someone on YouTube said had she "actually sung the song and not sang so many wooo oooo ooo's she might have actually done a good job, at least remembered the words."
Sure, we should be understanding of the situation with being in front of so many people and singing such an infamously difficult song...  But for some reason, this is an error that has always hushed the crowd and made you feel that terrible sinking feeling in your stomach.  Is it because it's our National Anthem and all Americans should know it?  Is it because we all think to ourselves, "Why did she even try if she wasn't going to get it right in front of hundreds of millions of people?"  Or is it because, somehow, deep inside it feels like a disgrace to our country even though it's just singing a song?
In any case, you shouldn't be afraid to feel ashamed to feel however you feel.  It would appear that forgetting the words or messing up on them is just one of those unforgivable taboos.

  5. lol I just don't understand, knowing that you will be singing your NATIONAL ANTHEM in front of millions of people, how you could choose to not memorise the words. I mean she's only singing for 2 minutes, it can't be that hard!

  8. Yeah I'm not liking her look there, too blonde and pale, no contrast. She was prime about 5 years ago. BTW- I need more support...my followers are not following like they should. lol

    Maybe I just need more followers!!

  10. Bahh. I think she forgot the lyrics because she was too focused on just how many octaves she could jolt her voice into... earache. ):

    & thanks for the compliment! I'm addicted to my scarves (; haha

  11. I'd like to get her take on it, if it was just a lapse of memory or pressure of singing on such a big stage (though she really should be used to this by now). It's the kind of moment that makes people feel bad for someone, everyone in that stadium probably knew the words!
