So embarrassing! Rachel Platten forgot the lyrics to the ‘Star Spangled Banner’ while performing it at the National Women’s Soccer League!
This has got to be a singer’s worst nightmare! It is safe to say Platten went through a really cringe-worthy moment, perhaps a lot worse than the mess Fergie experienced before her.
The Utah Royals and Chicago Red Stars faced off yesterday, but the thing that ultimately stole the show was the fact that the singer failed to remember the lyrics to the national anthem and not just once!
She had to start over multiple times before she finally got it right.
To make matters worse, as soon as she messed up the first time the camera panned to the audience as well as the players on the field and many of them were unable to contain their laughter.
She was finally able to get her performance under control although it was obvious she was very embarrassed.
As you can imagine, her fail video became an instant viral, and social media was quick to react.
Many made fun of the singer, one calling her performance ‘truly painful’ to witness.
‘Oh say can you see, by the STARS early light…’ -Rachel Platten on her third and final try singing the national anthem at Rio Tinto,’ one user highlighted her mistake.
‘Too bad Rachel Platten doesn’t know the words to our National Anthem. So sad America. Great game tho.’
‘Did Rachel Platten actually not know the words to the national anthem ahdhahsjdjshs.’
‘Rachel Platten messes up the national anthem not once, not twice but three times!’
But of course, there were also many fans who admitted they felt really bad for her.
