Jesse McCartney Skips Around The Star Spangled Banner

Jesse McCartney Skips Around The Star Spangled Banner

Looks like Hannah Montana isn’t the only one who forgets the lines to our nation’s anthem.

Musician Jesse McCartney skipped a line in our nation’s anthem while he was performing during NASCAR’s Pepsi 500 held at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif., over the weekend.

Eek! But that’s okay, we still love him.

Jesse tweeted after the anthem, saying, “Here At the Nascar race! So much fun! Can’t believe I forgot the words to the Anthem! I’ve performed it 100 times. Bad Nerves today I guess!”

TELL JJJ: Have you ever forgotten the words to something?

    Honestly, he was doing us a favor my skipping that line. It was one less line we had to hear of a horrible performance. Not a big deal that he messed up the words because nerves will do that to a guy, but it was painful to listen to.
