Minnie Driver flubbed the national anthem at Los Angeles' Dodger Stadium before the team's game Saturday against the St. Louis Cardinals.

The 45-year-old English actress sang the lyrics to "The Star-Spangled Banner" incorrectly not once, but twice.

"O'er the ramparts we hailed were so gallantly streaming?" Driver sang, accidentally replacing "watched" with "hailed."

Later, Driver crooned, "O say, can that star-spangled banner yet wave," exchanging "can" for what should have been "does."

To make the event worse, the lyrics to the song were projected on a large screen to the right of the field, which Driver did not notice as she sang the anthem proudly with her eyes shut.

While Driver still received applause after her flub, criticism surrounding the performance on social media led Driver to post a note on Twitter.



Later, Seattle Pi noted, one fan tweeted to Driver, "So when are you being deported exactly? Ha," to which Driver humorously replied, "I think in about half an hour..."

Driver, who lives in L.A. with her son Henry, also tweeted to a fan, “On the upside, I was in tune!!!! And my son had a blast.”

The English celebrity admitted the performance was “totally nerve wracking but amazing,” according to Seattle Pi.

This actress is only the most recent to flub the lines to the national anthem. She joins the ranks of Christina Aguilera, Cyndi Lauper, and James Taylor, all of whom botched the lyrics in the past few years.

Twitter users voiced their support for the actress even through the flub:
