One week after she botched the National Anthem at the Super Bowl, the 53rd annual Grammy Awards kicked off Sunday night with a tribute to Aretha Franklin. Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Hudson, Martina McBride, Yolanda Adams and Florence Welch sang a medley of Aretha's tunes. Did anyone see Christina trip on stage?

As the crowd leapt to a standing ovation and roared their approval of her unsurprisingly standout participation in the performance, Christina slipped and very nearly fell from the stage but caught her balance without smashing to the floor or causing any serious damage (save for some natural embarrassment).

The ensemble had just wrapped up "Sisters Are Doin' It for Themselves" when Aguilera lost her balance as they took a bow. Luckily, she was able to right herself by grabbing hold of a microphone stand.

Christina's first performance since the national anthem screw up could have been viewed as a form of pop-culture redemption. But, thanks to this slipup, everyone is once again talking about her for all of the wrong reasons.

Christina Aguilera just cant seem to catch a break.  I bet I wasnt the only one who was secretly hoping for another xtina screw up!
