Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie has rushed to the defence of Christina Aguilera, who, of course, is now the scourge of America after fluffing a line in the national anthem at the Super Bowl on Sunday. BEP also performed at the major advertising event this year, and Fergie herself has come in for some criticism on the vocal front.

Fergie told WENN: “I did [feel for her] because, you know what, it’s such a huge venue, your nerves just take a hold of you, so I completely understand. She’s one of the best singers of our time, so nobody can take that away from her. You get nervous at these things; she’s human!”

On her own singing, presumably hoping that you remember what she said above, she continued: “Some of my notes were pitchy to me, but that was just over-excitement, I was nervous. But it’s just exhilarating, the whole thing was so big. That’s a once in a lifetime thing, it was just so exciting”.

In other Aguilera news, rumour has it that she will open The Grammy Awards on Sunday. She will reportedly perform a tribute to Aretha Franklin with Jennifer Hudson. Let’s just hope she doesn’t mess up again, I’m not sure the world could cope.
