For anyone watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade this year, we actually had two flubs!.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â First, Ms. Avril Lavigne was getting ready to sing her new song “Wish You Were Here” on her float, when the vocal track started.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Her microphone wasn’t anywhere near her mouth at the time.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Oops!
Then, Mr. Scotty McCreery, the most recent American Idol, was getting ready to sing on HIS float, when the same exact thing happened!Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The vocal track for “The Trouble With Girls” started, and Scotty didn’t…
But not all flubs came courtesy of the Thanksgiving Day Parade.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â American Idol contestant Lauren Alaina was up to sing the National Anthem at the Lions/Packers game in Detroit.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â She got up to “What so proudly we hailed…” before going silent for a verse.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The fans helped her out, though, and she soon made her way back on “Whose broad stripes and bright stars…” and finished off the song with a smile.
Alaina took it all in stride, though, posting on Twitter later to take full ownership of her mistake:
“Thank you everyone for the kind words…But the truth is I messed up. I’m gonna spend the rest of the day being thankful for all my blessings.”
And to help her out, fellow “Idol” alum Kellie Pickler gave a few choice words of wisdom, tweeting:
“HEY DOLL! YOU HANDLED YOURSELF LIKE A PRO! SEND THE BULLIES MY WAY & I’LL TELL EM’ WHERE TO GO”
