(Newser) – There are three things you have to do when singing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl: Look good, hit the right notes, and sing the correct lyrics. Christina Aguilera is two for three. Aguilera, who isn't exactly an anthem novice (she sang the song at Game 7 of last year's NBA finals, notes the New York Daily News), botched the lyrics. What she was supposed to sing: "O'er the ramparts we watch'd, were so gallantly streaming." What she actually sang: "What so proudly we watched at the twilight's last reaming."

Twitter went wild, notes the Daily News, which shares this gem of a Tweet: "Egypt thanks Christina Aguilera for botching the national anthem and bumping them off the Twitter trending list." (And she wasn't the only celeb dealing with an embarrassing Super Bowl moment. Click for Cameron Diaz's blush-worthy moment.)
