Following in the footsteps of her American Idol colleague Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina forget the words to a portion of the "Star Spangled Banner" while performing at the Detroit Lions/Green Bay Packers game. However, the blonde cutie recovered well.

After singing the line, "What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's ...," the country star went silent for a few notes ... but then picked back up. Whew!

Alaina later Tweeted:

    "I'm not a robot. I have No excuses. I messed up. You know what can ya do. At least didn't fall down again. 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."

As for Scotty McCreery's "Star Spangled" mess-up, it happened at the World Series back in October. Even Christina Aguilera botched the lyrics to the song at the Super Bowl.

It happens to the best of them!
