Viewers react on twitter after Cyndi Lauper messes up the lyrics

Cyndi Lauper is being widely criticized on Twitter for botching the lyrics to the national anthem at the U.S. Open during an otherwise moving remembrance of the 10-year anniversary of 9/11.

Cyndi Lauper sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” before the women’s semi-final match between Serena Williams and Caroline Wozniacki.

“O’er the ramparts, we watched as our flag was still streaming,” Lauper sang, instead of “O’er the ramparts we watch’d were so gallantly streaming.”

Just as they did after Christina Aguilera botched the same lyrics during the 2011 Super Bowl, Americans who were outraged as they watched and were outraged took to their twitters.

Cyndi Lauper tweeted shortly after her performance saying:

“Whew, I just did the anthem for the US open. It was an awesome experience. I got choked up in the middle remembering 9/11. The moon shone done on us and I tried to say a prayer at the same time. I hope I didn’t mess up too bad. I wanted it to be comforting.” Xcyn
