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!"

Perhaps she should have declined singing the National Anthem since she did not have enough respect for this country and our citizens of this great country to take time to learn the words to our National Anthem. Did she do that for publicity. She can go back to where she came from. I will never listen to her again.

If she is getting PAID to sing one song, then she should have practiced and learned the words to that song. How hard is that? But its easy to be a star and not give a crap. And she wasnt stressed, she has been on stage all her life so it wasnt anything new to be in front of people.

She cant be bothered to do her job? How hard is it to learn the words of 1 ONE song????? If a normal person was to sing the song and screw it up, they would be fired. But we allow stars a totally different reality. We are supposed to feel sorry for them. Too BAD!

Who cares about these white racist put your hand over your hear and pledge allegiance to some dumb piece of cloth or sing some dumb "American Anthems." I've forgotten the words to the crap myself and we had to do this crap in school. They don't have to now. Black history month means nothing to me either, no one ain't ever helped me personally and everyone try to pretend we've come so far. NOT!!!!!

Why is it everyone is concentrating on Christina’s screw up. Why aren’t people bitching about the real problem with the super bowl…and how Ben Worthlessburger screwed up so many passes and allowed so many interceptions? That’s what people should be focused on.

To Russ, who posted comment #33....that may have been the most ridiculous remark I have ever read. I just read it aloud to my co-workers and you actually got a standing ovation, for, as my good friend Andy said "being the leading moron on the AOL board"...re-read it Russ....and get over yourself. Seriously, boy, you're an idiot - but thanks for the laugh.

Come--on, singers get rid of all the razzle, dazzle and stupid body motions, just sing the song in a respectful manner.

I'm tired of people trying to put their own spin on the National Anthem, just to show off their style. Sing it as it was written, and maybe you won't forget the words.
