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 ...

Xtina told the AP, "I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through."

Kim Kardashian was pulled onto the stage by Prince last night in NYC -- but he quickly kicked her off when she wouldn't shake her assets for him!

The reality TV star and boyfriend Kris Humphries were in the audience for Prince's show at Madison Square Garden last night -- when he started pulling audience members from the crowd to come on stage to dance ... including Kim!

Telling the crowd "She might be too sexy," Prince picked out Kim and then waited for her to start moving ... and she completely froze! "Get off the stage!" he shouted ... and off she went.

 "OMG Prince just pulled me up on stage!!! I'm shaking!!!!" Kardashian tweeted at the show, "I was so nervous I froze when Prince touched me!!!!"

She reportedly got a second chance on stage, tweeting again later "Went up on stage AGAIN! This time I redeemed myself! We all danced while Prince played the piano! Wow! What a night!"

Why did Christine Aguilera get to sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl when the better singers sang in the championship games? Margarita McBride was fabulous.

Flubbing is one thing, but to sound like an exasperated orgy is like spitting on Christ face or doing #2 on the graves of our forefathers. This generation has been taught well by their teacher Miss Lohan who has no honor for laws and therefore no respect in breaking them. They have been gleekanised: flagellating original songs and adulated for it. Does anybody read these postings? Or do you just rant and over with? To those of you ranting it is just a song, well I suppose your mother is/was just a mother. She made me laugh and then feel offended, but when the Packers won I cried oh how I CRIED...But Jennings should have been Mvp because had he dropped those passes the score would have read differently. Why must it always be a QB? He was humble enough to praise the truth and perform heroically.

Why is this such an issue? She made a mistake as we all have. It is so easy to bring people down. That right we are all perfect. The world at this point in time really sucks.

The girl is still being beat on for her Star Spangle Banner singing. The news must certainly be too slow that a second day is devoted to this ridiculous unworthy news item. Go find a good revolution to write about

People love to make a big deal when a celebrity slips up. Christina Agulera has a beautiful voice and has sung the national anthum before. Maybe she was nervous? Does she really need to be crucified in the media because she slipped up a few words? I love the national anthum as much as you guys but can any of you stand up at the superbowl in front of millions and belt out that song? give the girl a break!

Why don't you guy's get a life and stop chopping Christina Aguilera into little pieces. She is human and we all make mistakes..at least it wasn't RoseAnn again..Christina could have hummed her way through it and still passed..at least she sounded American enough for me. ".God Bless America"

Have always liked Ms Aguilerra's confident performance, since she was just a little girl. Now definately grown up. As ususal it was a great performance. Personally, I think the missing line was intentional... All publicity is good publicity..

When you get rid of your current Husbands... call me... Esp. if you feed popcorn to your man like Cameron?

Messing up the National Anthem is not cool. She went down a few pegs in my book by doing that. Maybe she was high or drunk.
Maybe she has been flubbing her own songs all this time but we just didn't know it. What a ditz. She started her career singing the National Anthem maybe in her mind she is too famous to sing it in front of an international crowd. How stupid she looked doing it too.

What is really scary is the 13% thought she was great. Deport her and don't let her come back until she can sing. Yea right.
