Alesha Dixon, the ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ judge, has hit back on the fans of British Grand Prix, who criticized her for using ‘wrong words’ and ‘American accent’ while performing National Anthem at the racing event on July 5 at Silverstone.
According to The Huffington Post UK, Dixon has marked the beginning of the event in a patriotic style, but it all went wrong after she sang ‘God save our queen’ instead of ‘God Save the Queen’.
Based on the reports from contactmusic.com, the 36 year old singer defended her performance, stating that she deliberately sang the ‘particular version’. She tweeted, “There’s a difference between choosing to sing something of a particular version and getting the words wrong. Boring story, very sad!”
Dixon’s retaliatory tweet has revealed that the change in the wording of the national anthem was her own decision. Tweeter users had also criticized her for putting on an American accent and singing like ‘Gad Save The Queen’.
On the contrary, she criticized journalists for exaggerating the issue, writing “I am always kind to journos because I am a nice person but sometimes….you talk a lot of s***! (In fact most times) We just tolerate you!”.
Alesha Dixon’s appearance was in the line of the process of gearing up after four years for the release of her first solo album.
