Social media users were left fuming during the Super Bowl on Sunday when a TV blunder overshadowed the national anthem.

Country singer Mickey Guyton was accidentally shown on screen when artist Jhene Aiko was starting her performance of 'America The Beautiful' before the anthem.

Guyton was waiting in the wings to perform her rendition of the Star Spangled Banner, but host broadcaster NBC had Aiko's name on the screen with the camera on Guyton.

The camera then switched to Aiko, but viewers noticed the embarrassing mishap.

Fans praised both artists for their performances on the big stage, but the TV blunder couldn't be ignored for many.

Fox News anchor Kristi Coleman wrote on Twitter: “Jhene Aiko is not Mickey Guyton. What an insult”.

Los Angeles Times reporter Matt Wilhalme labelled the blunder “embarrassing”, while plenty more were seething on social media.

Los Angeles Rams win the Super Bowl

The Rams went on to defeat the Bengals 23-20 to be Super Bowl champions for the second time.

The Rams' only other NFL title came 22 years ago when they were based in St. Louis.

They have now managed to join last year's Tampa Bay Buccaneers as the only teams to win a Super Bowl on their home field.

The Rams trailed 20-16 before quarterback Matthew Stafford connected with star wide receiver Cooper Kupp for the match-winning touchdown with one minute and 25 seconds remaining.

Kupp had eight receptions for 92 yards and two touchdowns.

The receiver had four catches for 39 yards on the final drive along with a 7-yard run on fourth-and-1 to keep the drive alive.

He also set a postseason record for receptions with 33.
