Alexis Normand, the jazz and folk singer from Saskatoon who recently botched "The Star-Spangled Banner" at a Memorial Cup game, redeemed herself Tuesday when she sang the Canadian anthem without incident.

Normand gained widespread attention when footage of her fluffing the lines of the American anthem went viral. Three lines in to the anthem, the French-Canadian from Saskachewan forgot, bumbled and mixed up the words to the anthem, drawing the ire of the audience. The crowd eventually piped in to carry her over the line.

In the wake of her performance on May 18, Normand tweeted, "I'm deeply embarrassed and deeply sorry. I wish I'd had more time to learn the American anthem. Thanks so much for the crowd's help!"

On Tuesday, the Halifax Mooseheads went head to head against the London Knights, and Normand sang the Canadian anthem (no "Star Spangled Banner" this time).

Normand is not the first person to mangle the lyrics to a national anthem.

Most notably, Michael Bolton forgot the words to the U.S. anthem when the Boston Red Sox played the New York Yankees in the American League Championship in 2003, while American Jeff Fuller fumbled "O Canada" at a pre-season Blue Jays game against the Houston Astros in February.
