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 think the National Anthem should be sang like it was written. I did not like her performance. It is real sad to not be able to sing the right words.

When I listened to this song being song by Christina. I got goose bumps, and that is a sign for me personally that says this little gal has a gift of voice that I for one love to hear.

I second Keith's comments... Why do all these singers have to slide up and down all over the scale instead of just singing the song as written. This does not sound like music. It sounds like a cat in heet. These singers(?) are only trying to promote themselves, and do not do justice to the National Anthem. She, like Whitney and Marvin, et al, are a disgrace. On the other hand, the young lady from Glee who sang before Christina was fabulous!

Why can't these singers sing the National Anthem like it was meant to be. The old school way. Changing the way the National Anthem is sung and singing that same Anthem in public should be a crime. We don't change the Constitution do we? I don't care if your GOD, it's wrong.

Forget about the missed words how about the melody of a cow in heat. What an ugly voice. If she sang in Iran or Egypt with that voice she would have been beheaded on the spot. Take voioce lession Christina.

People are making free energy generators (with some sucess) to free you from "big oil" and nobody seems to care. Somebody misses a line, singing, and OMG! Ever see someone couning and you walk up and start saying "17, 37, 15, 25, 42" and they mess up? FYI in a statium like that, when your signing the next line of a song, you have the previous line echoing in your ear!

I get it she screwed it up, it's not a felony people I'm sure she feels bad about it. What disturbs me is that nobody is talking about how horrible the halftime show was. Geezus the Black Eyed Peas sucked butt, now some are saying it was "technical problems", but the fact is it was an ill conceived poorly executed disaster because that group simply cannot perform WITHOUT technology. At least Christina can sing without a techno vocal tuner. Give the girl a break!
