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."


Prince Kicks Kim K Off Stage During Concert!


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!"

Christina's singing was a disgrace. The super bowl's selection of singers is a disgrace. Our National Anthem should be sung or performed by individuals or music ensembles who respect the United States and its anthem.

She has an amazing voice! Very unfortunate that she messed up here but she is human...people mess up every now and again. I find it pretty comical that some people are going on and on about her NOT having talent. And "disrespectful"??? Thats a bit much...she just messed up and it wasnt intentional. I'm sure she would have MUCH rathered done it to everyones standards and not had to hear all of you perfect, never said or done anything wrong kind of people!!!

I can't figure out why Christina Aguilera was even ask to sing the national anthem to start with. There are better singers in most high school choirs. She can't sing and can't even remember the words to this country's most sacred piece of music. Maybe if she sang it in a more conventional way she would sound better and could remember the words. But then maybe not, I guess I just like to hear our national anthem sang in a respectful way.

Who gives a hell. I want to see any of you sing it in from of a stadium of people. Gah. Get a LIFE seriously. People spend so much time in others lives worry about your own, it's so pathetic how society is.
P.S. She problably sings better, and looks better then any women on here and looks better than any girl some guy could get.

Losers.

For those of you sho say that it is a very difficult song to sing, that does NOT give her an excuse. Either she is a good enough singer to sing it right or she isn't. Obviously, she isn't. Just remember the people who have sung it absolutely perfectly without batting an eye.
