17 year old American Idol runner up, Lauren Alaina has taken to the social networking site Twitter to discuss the mistake that she made while singing the National Anthem at the Thanksgiving game between Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers. Lauren has accepted that she made a mistake but also admitted that there was nothing she could do about it now, so will not let it worry her too much.
Alaina tweeted, “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.” She later added, “thank you so much(: I’m not a robot. I have No excuses. I messed up. You know what can ya do. At least I didn’t fall down again.”
It was reported that, while singing the line “What so proudly we hailed”, Lauren Alaina seemed to freeze and forget her words. However, being the true professional that she is, Lauren then re-found her form and continued into "Whose broad stripes and bright stars." While many have been criticising Lauren Alaina for the mistake, we praise her for not falling apart. Well done Lauren.
