Aguilera nailed the Anthem (in rehearsals)

TMZ.com has found video of Christina Aguilera’s rehearsal of the National Anthem she so badly flubbed Sunday. This video was from Saturday, and frankly, she sounds pretty damn awesome.

She also nailed the “O’er the ramparts we watched …” passage.

It’s also rather telling that she cuts it off midway through because she obviously felt she was good to go.

It’s unfortunate she couldn’t pull off this version for Sunday’s performance. If she had, the national dialogue about her would have been much, much different.

I wonder if this is where Katzowitz saw himself after graduation (I assume he graduated, or maybe he pulled a Mike Freeman, who cares). Posting second hand information from a gossip tabloid, on a sports website, not about the game, but how "amazing" a washed up former teen queen sang her shitty rendition of the national anthem in rehearsals. I mean, does this job have a ceiling Katzowitz?

Bertrando1   - You nailed it for me.  Sing the national anthem before and then let them play ball. This past summer my wife had cousins in from Germany and we went to the Rays game in St. Pete and come the 7th inning stretch what do we hear... America the beautiful???  Thanks for taking the fun out of the game.

And the Steelers did well in practices before the game.  What's your point?  They both FAILED!

That's awesome that the ALBINO SNOOKIE nailed the rehersals. But when it came to the ACTUAL performance, which could very well be the worst EVER ( sans Rosanne Barr & Carl Lewis ) she should NEVER be allowed to sing the National Anthem anywhere EVER again. I won't even get started on the halftime mess. Super Bowl "performances" = SUPER FAIL!!! ... OUT!

Christina Aguilera is an albino Snooki

I couldn't tell that she messed up a line, because she was so horrific every line sounded messed up

   I agree. Leave the girl alone - she tried to bring it off....she just flubbed her lines.

No need to change anything.   We became who we are because we didn't run.  We fought for what we wanted.  Our national anthem gets me fired up everytime I hear it.  Lastly, leave the girl alone.  She messd up oh well. We all make mistakes.

I agree 100%. The National Anthem should be changed to America The Beautiful. The Star Spangled Bannner is a battle song. Change the song and only do one at sporting events. Its getting out of hand. Nobody has the guts to change this because of all the old farts hate change.

O! say can you see
By the dawn's dirty night
What so loudly we flailed
At the new Twilight screening
Who's got a broad wearing stripes
Through the pears in the fight
O'er the rampthings we reamed...were so gallonly screaming!
And the rocket's are there
Got some bombs in the air
Gave proooooff in the night
That we still like our hair!
O! say does that flag still spangle some stars
O'er the land of iced tea....and the home..of the..cave!

How 'bout a hand for Ms. Christina Aguilera!!!
