Alesha Dixon has hit back at viewers who criticised her rendition of the National Anthem at the British Grand Prix on Sunday, telling them “There’s a difference between getting the words wrong and choosing to sing a particular version!”
The Britain’s Got Talent judge changed just a single word in her a cappella version of the anthem, ending with the line “God Save our Queen” instead of “God save the Queen”, but apparently that was enough to rile some unimpressed viewers.
Others, meanwhile, objected to her decision to sing the national song in an American accent.
Dreadful Americanisation of our national anthem from Alesha Dixon there. And she got the words wrong too. Awful.
