Christina Aguilera botches national anthem at SB

DALLAS -- A lot of people complained about the Black Eyed Peas performance at halftime of the Super Bowl. And that's cool -- because if you don't like them (I don't) then you have a reasonable excuse for saying that.

But you know what there's no reasonable excuse for? Performing the national anthem at the Super Bowl and not knowing the freaking words. Which is what Christina Aguilera did on Sunday in Dallas.



It wasn't anything as silly and terrible as Carl Lewis' rendition, obviously, but she whiffed on multiple words and then added some of her own and generally looked like a chump. It sounded cool inside the stadium because, well, everything sounds cool in Cowboys Stadium. But make no mistake, Aguilera egged.

What a disgrace to our country, our men and women in uniform, the 100's of thousands who have fought and died for the freedom to allow a brainless NFL to hire a wacky, air-headed, over-hiped, bleached, off-keyed chick, to butcher our National Anthem before millions.  I'm sick and tired of those in charge of public spectacles engaging known and unknown singers (?) to sing the National Anthem, and then allowing them to rearrange the music to suit their particular music niche, whether it be rock, hip-hop, be-bop, jazz, soul, freak, opera, country or any other genre.  There are thousands of quality professors and students of music in our colleges and universities who would perform our National Anthem with the honor and dignity it demands, the way is was written and meant to be performed.  NFL, you suck.

Now she can have something in common with Roseanne Barr

What an insult to Roseanne Barr.  How can you compare the two?  At least Roseanne knew the words and she didn't deliberately try to screw up this wonderful song.

Not a fan at all of Christina, but she is human.  Easy to blast people behind a computer. 

Maybe if she had nto been trying so hard to screw it up by screaming the words so badly and singing it like it should be sung, she might not have forgotten the words.  And there is a big difference between her and the millions that watched her, she is supposed to be a professional at this.  She is nothing but a disgrace.

dude how many years do we have to watch the rolling stones or some other old ass band from the 60s as their skin melts off their skeletons under the high wattage lighting. no thanks im over that crap, lil wayne and drake should have been performing at half time.. time for all those old rock bands to go... the music does not match the face anymore and those cats just dont have any swag anymore. its depressing more than anything else. i am not a blackeyedpeas fan but i was stoked to hear they were doing the halftime show instead of the who or some crap like that. not knocking the music made by those legends, but seriously at some point you gotta ride off into the sunset... and they plan on doing it in their wheel chair. its sad.

Stick to Country Music singers.  They actually know the words and what it stands for.

It deserves respect because symbol minded people say so. The anthem itself has nothing to do with law/governance. If we got rid of the national anthem the country would still be the same, except pricks like yourself would freak out and destroy cities. The CONSTITUTION is why I'm able to comment, moron........ Oh wait, this is the internet not America..... Ha, you probably think America owns the internet. Am I right?

I'm glad she messed up the anthem. It gives you stupid morons a reason to complain, as it's all you're really good at.



How sobering it must be to the proud men and women in our armed services, who embrace the National Anthem, to know that they fight to defend the right of douche castles like this.
