Christina Aguilera: Super Bowl Flub Made Her a 'Trivial Pursuit Question'

Kevin Mazur/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- On Tuesday, the same day her new show The Voice premiered, Christina Aguilera appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about her own personal "voice" nightmare -- forgetting the lyrics while performing the national anthem at the Super Bowl this past February.

Explaining her lyrics flub, Aguilera told DeGeneres, "I’ve been singing that song my entire life.  I was known as the youngest anthem singer in my hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.”  She continued, "Shoot me for appreciating the moment, but I was like, 'Here I am at the Super Bowl, singing for a team and in front of the world,' and remembering what it was like to be that young, and look where I’ve made it now.”

Aguilera went on to say that she’s not going to let the incident get her down.  For that matter, the same goes for any of her other recent public missteps, like tripping on stage at the Grammys, and being detained for public intoxication several weeks ago.

The singer made a joke out of the Super Bowl mishap, telling DeGeneres, “That night, I knew....I was like, 'I just made myself a Trivial Pursuit question -- "In 2011, what female singer flubbed the lyrics?"’s just insane.”
