2/8/2011 10:07 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 ...

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."

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!"

I certainly hope those of you that think her flubbing up was "no big deal", aren't building my next car, my next house, aren't a doctor that might one day have to operate on my heart. Being a professional at anything means your performance is the best ALL the time. That you have the skills necessary to ensure you always do the best job you can. For anyone to excuse that performance because of "nerves" is pathetic! Has she never sang before a crowd before? Her performance was totally disrepectful of the anthem and author and composer. It was disrecpectful of our country, and it was disrecpectful of the NFL. Yet she hasn't apologized, but just offered a weak excuse why she couldn't perform one simple task in honor of this great nation.

Christina was dis-respectfull to the United States and it's people, to the men and women who served under our Banner in war and peace.
She was given a very important part of all events that takes place in our country, the presentation of our symbol and she treated it equal to our adversaries present and past.

Did anyone else notice in the clip about Christina on the line about what she told AP? The sentence started out with her name but "Christ" was Xed out(Xtina). Very subtle but to the point TMZ. Like Christmas shown as Xmas, taking Christ out of Christmas. Is this being politically correct or is it something else. I believe this is inexcusable!
