Aguilera Nat’l Anthem Was not THAT Bad (Video)
Given the fact that most Americans can not sing the national anthem in the right key, or even sing at all, it’s not extremely fair to criticize someone else for sucking at it.
Credit should be given to Christina Aguilera for belting out the song with those amazing pipes of hers.
Now, she did mess up the words of the song, we can’t overlook that, but it seriously wasn’t that bad. Everyone has been attacking her as if she butchered the entire anthem, which she totally did not do. She kept it flowing, she kept it cool and if you hadn’t known the words (because most people don’t anyway) you wouldn’t have noticed at all.
What’s worse anyway, messing up the words or sounding like a dying cat?
Some did say though, that she sounded bad on top of the screw up but that’s not true.
She tried to change it up a little and belt out the song like a love ballad. In some places, no it didn’t work as well, however she still did a great job.
We’ve heard worse. Check it out below:
She issued a statement following the performance:
“I got so caught up in the moment of the song that I lost my place. I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through.”
After seeing these clips, I’m sure anyone would forgive her. @SelenaBailey
