"Veteran singer James Taylor flubbed the beginning of the national anthem Thursday night when he sang at Game 2 of the World Series at Boston`s Fenway Park.


The Sweet Baby James singer, 65, began singing the words to `America the Beautiful` before quickly switching over to the "Star-Spangled Banner."

The mix-up is easily explained: Taylor was scheduled to sing `America the Beautiful` during the seventh inning of the game. He moved into the correct song quickly, but some viewers still caught the error."
