Good call, James.
Yes, Independence Day has passed, but watching people screw up our national anthem is timeless. This bit is still as much of a halfhearted time-filler today as it was two years ago when we aired it!
God Bless America… where you can make a TV show by splicing other people's video footage together.
Leave your suggestion for next week's Fan Favorite video in the comments!
The Super Bowl got off to an embarrassing start last night when Christina Aguilera flubbed the fourth line of The Star-Spangled Banner.
I guess that's what we get for letting a Mexican sing it.
That's a joke. Actually, Ms. Aguilera is half Ecuadorian. I realize that suggesting she might be Mexican is offensive to Mexican people who'd prefer not to be associated with her.
But all kidding aside, where was Mo Cheeks??
And don't tell me he wasn't at the Super Bowl, because I saw A-Rod there, which means all of our countries' greatest athletes were there, which means Mo Cheeks had to have been there.
To summarize, we probably shouldn't entrust the lyrics of our national anthem to a woman who isn't sure if her own name is spelled with an "X" or not.
Next time, bring Daniel and his cue cards. Or just have Natalie Gilbert do it.
Or maybe, instead of trying to perform vocal fellatio on our nation's most important song like a hooker trying to bring Uncle Sam to climax, just pay attention and sing the fucking lyrics.
At the very least, however, we can take solace in knowing that nothing Christina Aguilera did to this country could be as insulting as what Fergie and Slash did to Axl Rose.
