Christina Aguilera flubbed the lyrics to the National Anthem before the 2011 Super Bowl and now her rendition has been ranked the "most cringe-worthy" performance of the "Star-Spangled Banner."

According to an iHeartRadio poll, Xtina's flub was the worst — earning 35.9% of the votes.

In her case, she messed up the line "What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming," instead singing: "What so proudly we watched at the twilight's last gleaming."

Here's the top 6 worst National Anthem performances at major sporting events over the last decade, according to the same poll:
