Did Luke Bryan have National Anthem lyrics on his hand?

So it wasn't just me after all.

Watching country singer Luke Bryan sing the National Anthem before the All-Star game tonight, I could have sworn that I saw him looking down at his hand as he sang ... like he had the lyrics written there.

It was pretty darn obvious, right there on the stadium's big screen. I wanted to turn to the people next to me and say, "Did he just? Did you see that?"

But can you blame him? No performer wants to flub the National Anthem in front of millions of people and it's so easily done when nerves kick in.

But in this golden age of social networking, Bryan's apparent crib notes didn't go unnoticed on Twitter.

"Luke Bryan sings the national anthem the way I used to take geometry tests."

"I feel bad for you if you are a Luke Bryan fan…can't believe he just sang the national anthem off the palm of his hand… ‪#embarrassing."

"Luke Bryan apparently needed to go all 8th grade crib sheet to sing them anthem! #Comeonman"

The other Luke Byran talk on Twitter tonight? How tight his jeans were.

We kid you not.
