Packers win Super Bowl 2011, Xtina fluffs the US National Anthem, B.E.P rock the Halftime show!

Major Monday Mews: Green Bay Packers win the 2011 Super Bowl with a 31-25 win over Pittsburgh…..

I’m sure thats very interesting to the NFL fans out there, but to people like me who don’t really understand ball games, we’ll skip the actual game part and go to the entertainment part of the Super Bowl!

So, the lovely Christina Aguilera sang a beautiful rendition of the Star Spangled Banner, and no one could question her originality as she completely re-wrote the US anthem. Apparently she should have sang “O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?” but in fact sang “What so proudly we watched at the twilight’s last gleaming.” Very different.

But really, its surprising anyone noticed. I mean, in the UK many believe our National Anthem is “…God Save the Queen! Do do do do,do do, do do do dooo do do” etc!

Here is a lovely BBC article explaining exactly how Xtina messed up and has a video of the moment:

The Half-Time show was a spectacular performance by the Black Eyed Peas, featuring Slash, Usher and several B.E.P hits including “I’ve gotta feeling”, “Pump It” and “Boom Boom Pow”

Will link a vid asap,

Peace.
