Christina Aguilera's National Anthem Flub (VIDEO)
"I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of it's anthem still came through," she says in a statement.
Christina Aguilera messed up the words to the National Anthem on Sunday night.
When she was supposed to sing the line "O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming," she instead repeated a slight variation of an earlier line, singing, "What so proudly we watched at the twilight's last gleaming." (Watched would have been "hailed.")
She said in a statement after: "I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through."
