AMERICAN IDOL contestant Lauren Alaina will not forget this Thanksgiving Day for a very long time. During the opening of the Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers game, she forgot part of the lyrics to the National Anthem.
To her defense, who really cares? She just joins the long list of stars who have also forgotten the words. And I have to admit, it loses me at “Oh say can you see”. How many can actually sing the entire song without forgetting any of the words? Can you? Check out the lyrics after you try singing it right now.
Lauren, no worries…your fans will still love you no matter what! Don’t let those critics get to you, they probably can’t get through it without messing up either. And to keep this in perspective you are only 17-years-old, others have had decades to learn it!
Keep your sunshine smile and move on. It’s not the first time nor the last, that someone will slip singing the lyrics to our treasured National Anthem.
I know this may anger some die-hard American’s, but life is too short to worry about a song. Knowing the lyrics does not make you love your country anymore than the next guy.
