French Canadian folk singer Alexis Normand makes a cringeworthy bags of the American National Anthem before the 2013 Memorial Cup game between the Portland Winterhawks and the Halifax Mooseheads.
Thinking she’d memorised the Star Spangled Banner correctly, she went wrong after the third line, filling in with gibberish to bridge to the finale.
Afterwards, mortified, she took to Twitter to apologise, the pet.
I’m embarrassed and deeply sorry. I wish I’d had more time to learn the American anthem. Thanks so much for the crowd’s help! #memorialcup
