Watch A Canadian Girl Sing ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ and Forget Half the Words [VIDEO]
On Saturday, Canada’s national junior hockey tournament in Saskatoon featured one of the worst National Anthem attempts EVER. Some girl named Alexis Normand sang the Canadian AND American anthems. She obviously wasn’t too familiar with the American one, because she forgot half the lyrics, started and stopped a couple times, sang one part TWICE, and generally embarrassed herself for a minute and a half.
Luckily, the crowd started singing along, and she eventually made it through. After the game, she tweeted her apologies.
I’m embarrassed and deeply sorry. I wish I’d had more time to learn the American anthem. Thanks so much for the crowd’s help! #memorialcup

It reminded me of the scene in ‘The Naked Gun’ when Leslie Nielsen completely butchers the anthem at a baseball game.
Don’t worry Alexis, you’re not along. Top names stars have butchered the National Anthem too, including Christina Aguilera and Steven Tyler, and they’re from AMERICA.
