5am to 10pm
This occurred prior to the game between the Halifax Mooseheads vs Portland Winterhawks
Canadian singer Alexis Normand made it about three and a half lines through her rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” before the Memorial Cup in Saskatoon, Canada, when she forgot the words to the anthem.
The crowd laughed after Normand struggled through “the peri-luh liiiiiigh”. To her credit, Normand regrouped and substituted general sounds whenever she didn’t know a particular word.
She later tweeted:
I'm embarrassed and deeply sorry. I wish I'd had more time to learn the American anthem. Thanks so much for the crowd's help! #memorialcup
