    I`ve got to say, I laughed. Who hasn`t at this clip. As Lorah said, the girl is not stupid, she simply forgot the words, she was nervous. But, when she tried to do sing again, she slips up. Thats got to be some of the worst luck I`ve seen in ages.

    Usually at sporting events between Canada and US teams, somebody sings both national anthems...whether it`s a Canadian or an American...usually they have to know the words for both anthems. This poor girl probably just forgot the words, like others have said. Can any American here quote the words to the Canadian National Anthem by any chance??

    Didn`t she go on Regis and Kelly or something and apologize? Then she sang it all over again and it was fine. She said that it was nerves the first time, and then the booing and stuff really screwed her up the second time.

    I`m a singer myself, and trust me, she has a LOT of guts to even start again the second time let alone the third. I hate to think that people laughed at her for forgetting words so another country`s national anthem. I would have applauded her for even trying. I hate how cynical our world is.

    She probably learned it too, osprey, but it`s kind of hard with pressure and all these people booing at you. She did have guts, though.

    Moral of the story: make sure that the person singing is from the same country as the national anthem being sung. (although I have seen Americans screw up the national anthem as well...)

    Yeash all the americans in this thread are horible , she screwed up big freaking deal. Whats really sad was that this made NATIONAL television in the states , and in Canada there was a small note made of it. I think some people want to bring back the American /Canadian booing and jeering that happened last year if anybody still remebers that.

    Actually, Americans don`t really give two craps about Canada in that respect.

    I`m British and I dont know the full "God Save The Queen" national anthem either! Plus its awful, I dont care about the queen, our national anthem should be `Rule Britannia`. I dont know the American national anthem either, although oddly I know all the words to the Canadian one thanks to Terrence and Philip, lol.

    Look I would laugh whether she was Canadian, American, English, Timbucktoo-ian(?) The only God Save The Queen I know is by the Sex Pistols. the Only Star Spangled Banner I know is Jimi Hendrix. 10/10 to this girl for effort. It`s an unfortunate event, but still side splitting. P.S I bin to Canada and It`s a fantastic country. Having met both american and canadian people, I`d sooner co-habit with someone north of the border ;-)
