Erin Andrews did not have Justin Bieber on her mind (Video)

Erin Andrews MIke NapoliFOX reporter Erin Andrews appeared to nearly call Justin Verlander “Justin Bieber” in an innocent misspeak after Game 3 of the ALCS between the Boston Red Sox and Detroit Tigers, but she denied that was the case.

Andrews was interviewing Mike Napoli, whose solo home run off Verlander in the seventh was the only run of the game, when she nearly slipped. You can hear what she said in the video above.

Andrews heard about her misspeak from people on Twitter and couldn’t believe the feedback she was receiving.

She also said she wasn’t thinking about Bieber when she nearly slipped.

Earlier in the game, Andrews did slip when giving a sideline report during a 17-minute power delay. She mistakenly called Tigers manager Jim Leyland “Joe Leyland” because she also was about to say something about umpire Joe West. She quickly corrected herself and later noted on Twitter that she had a lot of Joes in her head.

But the best mixup of all was when someone on Twitter talked about how beautiful Andrews is while posting a picture of Carrie Underwood:

Don’t worry, Erin. I wouldn’t sweat any of this. These were so minor and the important thing is you corrected yourself quickly. Anyone who has done a live on-air report has done something similar.
