Music Christina Aguilera to Sing National Anthem At Super Bowl XLV

In the “worst-kept secret” department, word leaked today on who will be singing the National Anthem during the upcoming broadcast of Super Bowl XLV, to be carried live by Fox, HitFix.com reported.

For its part, the NFL isn’t confirming anything. But multiple sources say the Anthem will be handled by Grammy winner Christina Aguilera, star of the current feature film "Burlesque."

Aguilera’s delivery of "The Star-Spangled Banner" marks a return to the Super Bowl for the star. She appeared during the halftime show back in 2000, when the lineup also included Enrique Iglesias and Phil Collins.

Last year, it was Carrie Underwood who performed the National Anthem.

The Super Bowl will be played at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on Feb. 6.

Christina is actually a very good vocalist so I'd say she is a good pick to sing the Anthem.

I agree with you. I think it's a good pick. She has performed the national anthem at other events and she sounds pretty good.

Christina Aguilera Botches The National Anthem Before the Super Bowl Kickoff
By Rob Shuter
Posted Feb 6th 2011




Christina Aguilera, always a pro singing the national anthem, couldn't make it through the Star Spangled Banner before the kickoff of Super Bowl XLV. Aguliera, who has handled the task without issue before NBA games, botched the lyrics badly halfway through the song.



Instead of "'O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming" turned into "what so proudly we watched at the twilight's last [unintelligable lyric]."


Luckily, Aguilera had the quick, crowd-rousing "rocket's red glare" line to follow it up, which she nailed and got the packed Cowboys Stadium quickly on her side.

Still, our eyewitnesses in Dallas tell us that the crowd had some drastic reactions. "This was the biggest performance of her career and she blew it," a source with a VIP view tells me. "To mess up the lyrics was a disaster."




Another source tells us the televised roars of the crowds weren't as loud in person. "A hush fell over the stadium and everyone was looking at each other."

After the Star Spangled Banner wrapped, Aguilera headed backstage where a source tells me that the singer is "devastated."

"She knows she messed up big time. It's an honor to be ask and she let America and herself down. She doesn't want anyone around her. Everyone telling her she was great but she knows the truth."

I knew she would desecrate it. Other than Roseanne Barr's pathetic rendition, her's is the worst I've ever heard.

I caught the error, and I wasn't watching or listening too closely either...

She once visited one of the high schools in my hometown years ago, while already a major celebrity, and by all accounts was very nice. So I'm reluctant to say anything bad about her. I do think she should try her old chin-length bob again though -- her current style looks like it was machete-chopped..!

Cool

Christina Aguilera made the same mistake most celebrities make when they are asked to sing the anthem. Instead of singing the anthem she attempted to perform the anthem. Trying to turn the anthem into performance is in my opinion both disrespectful and tasteless. And as Ms. Aguilera showed causes the performer to be prone to errors. The anthem should be sung not performed.

Thumbs down TIME: "The Top 10 Worst National-Anthem Renditions"

Top 10 Worst National-Anthem Renditions
by Dan Fletcher
Wednesday - Feb 6, 2011




1. Roseanne Barr
San Diego Padres and Cincinnati Reds at Jack Murphy Stadium (July 25, 1990)



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SkhbpeL-8sY




This is quite possibly the worst rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner" ever. Ever.

The thing is, we're not sure whom to blame.



True, Roseanne makes no attempt to sing in anything that resembles proper pitch.

But shouldn't the real blame lie with the organizers of this 1990 San Diego Padres game? Did they really think the shrill comedienne had a set of hidden pipes as yet unrevealed to the American public?













2. "The Hockey Girl"
Quebec Hockey Game (2006)



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeBrjaohiJU




This amateur songstress's performance was an undeniable, unadulterated disaster.

She forgets the lyrics twice and sneaks off for a cheat sheet, only to fall flat on her back as she returns to the rink.

That final embarrassment was enough to make her leave the ice for good, song left unsung.













3. Chattanooga Police Officer
Hamilton County, Tennessee Memorial Service for Fallen Officers (2006)



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SHnpWohrg0




Immortalized by a TV news crew, this 2006 performance of the national anthem by a Chattanooga police officer is downright shameful.

His fellow officers struggle to remain stoic as he butchers the lyrics from beginning to end. The awful rendition is made worse by the occasion — a memorial for fallen officers.













4. Carl Lewis
NBA Basketball Game (1993)



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJLvCM4j2mg




It doesn't matter how fast Olympic champion Carl Lewis can run — he will never escape his inglorious 1993 national anthem performance.

Midway through, Lewis promises he'll "make it up" to the booing crowd, only to butcher the remaining few bars.


American idol he may be, but "American Idol"? Certainly not.

Oh, and by the way, dude can't throw a baseball, either.













5. "The Anonymous Enthusiastic Man"


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iINVptR_f4Y




The worst national anthems might be the ones where the performer can't tell how bad they truly are. That's why we'd be remiss if we didn't include this viral video favorite, of a man's emotionally charged (and melodically bereft) rendition.

Luckily for this guy, it's impossible to find any details on who he is or where this takes place. We'd want to toil in anonymity after a performance like this, too.













6. R. Kelly
Jermain Taylor and Bernard Hopkins Middleweight Title Re-Match (2005)



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PkI7F5u1BGY




We understand the desire to put your own spin on the national anthem. And crooner R. Kelly was likely modeling his performance after Marvin Gaye's epic 1983 NBA All-Star Game rendition.

Still, this interpretation spins a bit out of control.



The audience — who did not want to clap their hands, thank you very much Mr. Kelly — soundly booed his ill-advised smoovification of the Francis Scott Key original.













7. Kat Deluna
Eagles vs. Cowboys in Dallas, Texas (2008)



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q98BuAX2T0U




For the aspiring pop sensation, the opportunity to sing "The Star Spangled Banner" can easily turn into an exercise in one-upmanship. Who can have more superfluous trills, embellishments, and instances of unnecessary melisma?


Well, future singers might have a tough time outdoing Kat DeLuna's 2008 rendition.

If you can suffer through her lengthy, ahem, interpretation, the boos raining down from the Dallas Cowboy crowd are easily the best part.













8. Michael Bolton
ACLS at Fenway Park (2003)



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZrK_kOk8Lw




Suffering through any Michael Bolton song is bad enough. But having to suffer Bolton's overwrought version of the national anthem is doubly awful.

What's worse, the curly-haired crooner had to rely on crib notes written on his hand to get through the 2003 ALCS at Fenway Park.



The man has had eight Top 10 albums — he should have at least been able to remember the lyrics to one of the nation's most-familiar tunes.













9. Christina Aguilera
Super Bowl XLV (Feb. 6, 2011)



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vMHffUXbLV8




Turns out, there's a reason some singers choose to prerecord "The Star-Spangled Banner" and lip-sync their way through the "live" performance.


In Christina Aguilera's rendition at the 2011 Super Bowl, it wasn't the song's notoriously high notes that gave her trouble, but rather its quaint 19th century phraseology.

While Aguilera deserves credit for choosing to sing the song live in front of millions of people, there's little excuse for forgetting the words to the beloved, oft-performed anthem.



Instead of singing, "O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming," Aguilera inserted the line, "What so proudly we watched at the twilight's last reaming."



The songstress was described as "devastated" after her performance, and issued the following statement: "I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through."













10. Hilary Clinton
Presidential Campaign Stop in Iowa (2007)



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfZ_gXCHaMw



Luckily, the Secretary of State's responsibilities do not include having to sing our national anthem for audiences abroad. If they did ... we might have a problem.


During a presidential campaign stop, Hillary Clinton's microphone inadvertently picked up her earnest attempt at "The Star Spangled Banner."

Just mouth the words next time, Madame Secretary.

They should have just played Jimi Hendrix's version from Woodstock. That gets my vote as the best renditon of the national anthem.
