Scotty McCreery Flubs National Anthem

Scotty McCreery Flubs National Anthem

Scotty McCreery has become the latest singer to flub the "National Anthem" during his rendition at last nights World Series game one between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Texas Rangers.

McCreery, this years' "American Idol" winner, was on hand at Busch Stadium, home of the Cardinals, to open the pre-game ceremonies with the iconic patriotic song.

The singer's first problem was the microphone wasn’t on. After he sang a few measures of the song, technicians were heard scrambling trying to figure out what was wrong. Once they got the microphone working, McCreery began singing without incident until he got to the end of the song.

When the singer got to the part where the lyrics go, "Oh Say does..." he can clearly be heard saying, "No, Jose does..."

The slip up didn't seem to be noticed by the crowd on hand.

Michelle Obama was at the pre-game ceremonies as the event began around 6 p.m. EST, because of the increased security in having the First Lady there.

Most recently Christina Aguilera botched the "National Anthem" in this year’s Super bowl singing "What so proudly we watched, at the twilight's last gleaming" instead of "O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly gleaming."

The 18-year-old country artist released his first album, Clear As Day on Oct. 4, with its first single released on Aug. 30 called "The Trouble With Girls."

The album sold 197,000 units its first week, and made history debuting on the Billboard 200 at No. one. He has also become the youngest man to ever do so.

McCreery had another single called, "I Love You This Big," released earlier in the year after winning "American Idol."
