Idol runner-up bungles US anthem

2011-11-25 16:44
Los Angeles – American Idol season 10 runner-up Lauren Alaina forgot the words of the US national anthem while performing it live on air.

The 17-year-old singer sang the anthem in front of a massive crowd at an American football match between the Detroit Lions and the Green Bay Packers.

Alaina momentarily forgot the second line of the anthem and paused for a few seconds in silence.

She managed to pull herself together and proceeded – ending the performance with a smile.

"It's all about how you finish," the commentator said at the end.

    Coincidentally, the next game on Thanksgiving Day (Dolphins vs Cowboys) featured a boyband called Big Time Rush, who did an amazing a capella version of the Star Spangled Banner. Gave me goosebumps. I'm no fan of boy bands, and I'd never heard of these guys before, but these guys nailed it.

    Oh dear, wonder if she'll be called a 'racist' like Ard Matthews was.
