Coming to the defense of her fellow performer, Stacy “Fergie” Ferguson admitted that she felt sorry for Christina Aguilera following her botched National Anthem on Sunday night (February 6).

Chatting with Dan Patrick this morning (February 7), the Black Eyed Peas singer was asked if she had compassion for the "Burlesque" babe, to which she replied, "I did."

Fergie continued, "Because 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."

As for her own halftime performance, the 35-year-old told, "Some of my notes were pitchy to me. It was so exhilarating. The whole thing. it was so big. That's a once-in-a-lifetime thing."
