‘American Idol’s’ Lauren Alaina flubs National Anthem

She recovered nicely

Thanksgiving was rough for the top two ‘American Idol’s from last season.

Idol winner Scotty McCreery was mortified after he was caught lip syncing at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and shortly after Idol’s runner up Lauren Alaina had a pretty big stumble with the National Anthem at the Packers/Lions game.

Lauren had the honor of singing the National Anthem before the Packers took on the Lions in Detroit yesterday, but forgot some of the words from the beginning of the song.  She had to pause for a moment, but she recovered nicely and finished off stronger than ever.

Alaina did something very cool that not many celebrities do when they mess up – she owned up to it right away.  She posted a message on her Twitter about the flub, saying;

“Thank you everyone for the kind words. But the truth is I messed up. I’m gonna spend the rest of the day being thankful for all my blessings.”

Lauren’s Anthem flub is certainly not the worst we’ve seen, and this year’s anthem flubs have been plentiful. Scotty has also had some trouble with the National Anthem when he tried to sing it before game one of the World Series of baseball and ended up battling microphone issues.  Let’s also not forget Christina Aguilera or Cyndi Lauper’s Anthem mess ups.

Check out the video of Lauren singing the National Anthem and tell us what you think.
