Christina Aguilera botches national anthem at SB

Posted by Will Brinson

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.
