We’re not sure this is how our forefathers intended we celebrate Independence Day, but for this July 4th we’re doing something a little different. Personally, I can never remember the words to the National Anthem so I don’t blame these celebs for stumbling through the song.
On the other hand, I am sure they had ample time to practice, so I really don’t know why these great singers had a hard time getting through “Star Spangled Banner”. Maybe it’s all the pressure of being patriotic? Whatever the reason it’s still pretty funny to watch these stars totally screw up. Sometimes they can’t remember the words or try to riff into their own version, either way, the crowds are not happy! Yikes.
