Christina Aguilera has been given the opportunity to sing the U.S. National Anthem at a sporting event after mixing up the words to the Star Spangled Banner at the Super Bowl on Sunday.
The bosses of Minor League baseball team the Brooklyn Cyclones have invited the singer to perform at any of their home games this summer.

Aguilera was heavily criticized after she messed up one of the lines of the National Anthem before the Super Bowl in Texas.

The Cyclones are the New York Mets’ farm team.

A statement from general manager Steve Cohen reads, “When a player makes a mistake, they usually don’t get a shot at redemption, but with a singer, that’s a different story.”
