Christina Aguilera‘s national anthem fumble before Sunday’s Super Bowl game made headlines as the pop star forgot the words. Instead of going into seclusion for screwing up such a high-profile performance, Aguilera is marching on, having been added to the Aretha Franklin tribute that will occur during the Grammy Awards ceremony this Sunday.
Aguilera will be joined on stage by Jennifer Hudson, Yolanda Adams, country singer Martina McBride, and Florence Welch of indie-pop group Florence & The Machine. The tribute will definitely display the impact that the Queen of Soul has had, not only on R&B singers, but on singers of various genres.
Franklin will receive the Grammy Legend Award at the ceremony, but it’s currently unknown whether or not she will appear. Franklin made headlines in late 2010 due to a health scare that forced her to cancel a tour and undergo emergency surgery. The Queen of Soul later stated that her health problems have since been resolved.
