California, Jan 23 (THAINDIAN NEWS) American Idol judge Steven Tyler was made to taste the dose he gave contestants week-in and week-out when he performed the US anthem during the match between the Patriots and the Ravens at the AFC championship.

Major news networks in the United States and around the world have critique the performance. Yahoo! News had some interesting words for the veteran singer. The Internet giant wrote that, “He most definitely would not have made it to the next round on the show and I am sure Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson would have had some interesting words to say had he been singing in front of them.”

The Associated Press simply said the performance would no way get the singer “to Hollywood.” Singing the US National Anthem is becoming the banana peel for many stars in the country.

Last year Christina Aguilera famously tripped over the lyrics of the “The Star Spangled Banner” song during the Super Bowl. Former American Idol contestant Scott McCreary was also found wanting when he took the stage to perform the anthem at the last baseball season.

Kelly Clarkson, the first winner of the American Idol show will have the chance to receive honor or shame when she take the stage and give the National Anthem at the Super Bowl Sunday early next month.
