In her defense, it is a difficult song to sing under pressure. It gets jacked up all the damned time for a reason. I've never seen someone get lost in the beginning, though. Usually, they lose their place and repeat things. Oh, well. She handled it with humor and grace. Gotta respect that.

But she went to school in a state known for having one of the best education systems around. How can she not know the national anthem?

Never heard of this chick, but a quick google image search indicates she is not hot enough to goof this up so badly and get away with it.
