‘Idol’ Alum Lauren Alaina Flubs National Anthem

While you were scarfing down cranberry sauce and overcooked turkey, American Idol alum Lauren Alaina spent Thanksgiving Day as a Top 10 Trending Topic on Twitter.

If only her stock were that high on the Billboard Hot 100.

The teen sensation, who finished second on the 10th season of the FOX talent show, just joined the likes of Roseanne Barr, Kat DeLuna, Musiq Soulchild, Keri Hilson, and Christina Aguilera in the illustrious “National Anthem Slayers Hall of Fame” after flubbing the lyrics to “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Nerves apparently got the best of Lauren as she took center stage during the big NFL showdown between the Detroit Lions and the Green Bay Packers this Turkey Day. After belting out the line “What so proudly we hailed, through the twi…,” the songstress went totally silent for about five seconds — a brain freeze of epic proportions.

Lauren was able to pick the song back up and complete the line: “Whose broad stripes and bright stars…” In an even greater stroke of luck, she was able to escape Ford Field without being booed, egged, or otherwise heckled. (If only the Twitterverse were so kind!) Lauren took ownership for her anthem flub in a posting to the microblogging hub:

“…I have No excuses. I messed up. You know what can ya do. At Least didn’t fall down again.”

Thank goodness for small favors, huh?
