Christina Aguilera NAILS Super Bowl Rehearsal

2/8/2011 11:12 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Christina Aguilera sang an UNBELIEVABLE rendition of the "Star-Spangled Banner" during Super Bowl rehearsals -- one of the best ever -- and she was so confident in her performance, she didn't even finish the song!!!

TMZ obtained footage of the National Anthem rehearsals -- shot Saturday in Cowboys Stadium.

Christina not only gets all of the lyrics correct -- but the delivery was Whitney Houston-esque.

So much for the maxim practice makes perfect ...

She still spoiled the song in front of millions. Rehearsal matters nothing now... other than she can't sing just 'normally' without ridiculous R&B dragged on embellishment crap. Just sing the songggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg.

OMG that gave me goose bumps! She is amazing. It's a shame people only notice when she screws up.

She was nervous and messed up. It happens to all of us, including famous singers. She's been having a bad year, so cut her some slack.

It is crazy that cue cards are not provided for people who sing our national anthem. It is a difficult song and it is not like pop stars such as Christina sing it every day. Give 'em all cue cards and be done with this sort of thing. No one wants to see the anthem botched. Or a career, for that matter.

She is a fat pig drunkard failure from now on to me!

No respect for her at all slobbering the song the way she screeched it out.

P.U. You stink Christina and you are not beautiful.

Why do they have to screw up the National Anthem by adding a lot of extra notes to the song. Up and down twisting notes that were not written into the original song. Leave the song alone and sing it the way it was meant to be sung.

It sucks she forgot the words at the actual show, but I didn't even notice it to be honest with you. I was too busy getting chills and tears in my eyes from such a gorgeous & powerful voice!

What arrogance. The national anthem is the best song in the world and she thinks she knows a better way to sing it. The reason she forgot the words is she was trying to make it all about her with some rendition you could not follow.
