Christina Aguilera sang the National Anthem at Super Bowl XLV.

She’s being criticized for messing up the lyrics and taking a little too much ad lib liberties on pitch and vocalization.

She sang: “What so proudly we watched at the twilight’s last gleaming” but she should have sung: “O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming:

Christina María Aguilera (born December 18, 1980) first appeared on national television in 1990 as a contestant on the Star Search program, and went on to star in Disney Channel’s television series The Mickey Mouse Club from 1993–1994. Aguilera signed to RCA Records after recording “Reflection”, the theme song for the animated film Mulan (1998).

Aguilera has been referred to as the “voice of her generation” and a blue eyed soul singer. Aguilera also topped COVE’s list of the 100 Best Pop Vocalists with a score of 50/50[126] and came fifth in MTV’s 22 Greatest Voices in Music. Christina Aguilera’s rendition of “It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World” at the 49th Grammy Awards ranked third in the Grammy’s Greatest Moments List behind Celine Dion’s performance of “My Heart Will Go On” and Green Day’s performance of “American Idiot”. In an interview, Dion described Aguilera as “probably the best vocalist in the world.” Rolling Stone ranked Aguilera at 58 on their list of the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time, the youngest singer on the list.

One of Aguilera’s major influences and idol is blues singer Etta James, whose classic song “At Last” has been covered by Aguilera throughout her career. Aguilera says, “Etta is my all-time favorite singer. I’ve said it for the last seven years — since I had my first debut record out — in every interview. I mean, all of Etta’s old songs, countless songs I could name, I grew up listening to.”

In the run-up to the 2004 United States presidential election, Aguilera was featured on billboards for the “Only You Can Silence Yourself” online voter registration drive run by the nonpartisan, non-profit campaign “Declare Yourself”. In these political advertisements, shot by David LaChapelle, Aguilera was shown with her mouth sewn shut, to symbolize the effects of not voting. She appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show to discuss the importance of voting. In late 2007 Aguilera became the spokesperson for “Rock the Vote” where she urged young people to vote in the 2008 presidential election.In partnership with “Rock the Vote”, she appeared in a public service announcement which aired in summer 2008. The advert showed Aguilera with her son, Max Bratman, wrapped in an American flag, while singing “America the Beautiful”.
