The Twilight’s Last Gleaming

At the opening to the Super Bowl in Texas, Christina Aguilera muddled the words of the American national anthem. Instead of singing, “O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming,” she belted out, “What so proudly we watched at the twilight’s last gleaming.”  It’s strange because Christina’s sung the anthem many times in public since a young age and this is the first time she’s made a mistake.

Christina is an avid supporter of Defenders of Wildlife, so perhaps the Earth Emperor was behind the mishap given the significance of the twilight  in his story. He’s also particularly fond of ‘Yankee Doodle’ as an anthem for revolution.
