Fergie Knows That Her Super Bowl Performance Was ‘Pitchy’

Some have quibbled with the Black Eyed Peas' halftime performance during yesterday's Super Bowl, and Fergie feels you. "Some of my notes were pitchy to me," she admitted to a radio show today. Still, "It was so exhilarating. The whole thing. It was so big. That's a once-in-a-lifetime thing." Fergie saved most of her defense for the beleaguered Christina Aguilera, whose flawed rendition of the national anthem has inspired a bloodthirsty media to call for the singer's head: "You know what? It's such a huge venue, your nerves take a hold of you. I completely understand. She's one of the best singers of our time. Nobody can take that away from you. ... But you get nervous at these things. We're human." [USAT]
