It's the biggest moment any singer can ask for...

Singing the National Anthem at the Superbowl is usually a Pinnicale moment in a vocalist's career. 

And Hag-ulilera tanked 40 seconds in.

She was about to sing the fourth line of the song, which goes, quote, "O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming."

Instead, she sang, quote, "What so proudly we watched, at the twilight's last streaming." 

Which is sort of like a hybrid version of the correct line and the second line of the song, which goes, quote, "What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming?"  Since it's similar, but sort of confusing, it didn't seem like anyone really noticed.

Afterwards, Christina said she just got caught up in the moment . . . quote, "I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through."

Not that it matters, but Christina DID sing it correctly at Game 7 of the NBA finals last June.
