Christina Aguilera does know the words to the national anthem

Okay, so Christina Aguilera did a lyrical switch-up while performing the national anthem at the Super Bowl on Sunday.

But let’s think back to happier times, when she belted out “The Star-Spangled Banner” at both Game 6 and Game 7 of the NBA finals last summer.

See? She DOES know the words!

As she said in a statement, last night was just a fluke.

“I got so lost in the moment of the song that I lost my place,” the 30-year-old singer told CNN. “I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of it's anthem still came through.”

Family ties and a crisis on 'House'

Candice Bergen returns as Cuddy's mother Arlene on tonight's episode of "House," and Lisa Edelstein couldn't be happier.

"Candice is amazing; she's an incredibly bright woman, which I think just shines right through all the dialogue, and really fun to work with," she recently told reporters of Bergen. "I was really happy to be on set with her just historically, just because I've grown up watching her. I think having met the character of Cuddy's mom, it's clearer why she would be able to tolerate a guy like House."

In the upcoming episode, Arlene is admitted to the hospital and House resorts to doing something illegal in order to treat her. "When the health crisis hits, [Cuddy's relationship with House is] even more complicated and it gets very, very messy."
