Protesters on Wednesday showered Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney with glitter -- but the shiny stuff sure didn't make his singing voice sparkle.

At a campaign event in Eagan, Minnesota, the candidate got doused with glitter just as he was taking the stage. Aides worked to quickly remove the light-reflecting particles, but the stubborn glitter just stuck to his gelled hair.

"This is confetti!" Romney exclaimed to the crowd. "We just won Florida! We're just going to win the White House next! Let me tell you, President Obama, he's not going to be seeing a lot of confetti. He's going to be seeing a job. He's going to be going down to the golf courses down in Florida."

Later in his stump speech, the former Massachusetts governor decided to make another attempt at singing "America the Beautiful."

"You want to sing that?" Romney asked the crowd before breaking into song.

But his shimmering hair did little to take attention away from the fact that his singing voice had actually gotten worse since Monday's highly-panned rendition.

"That's the second time I've done that, ya know?" Romney admitted. "If we keep that up, I'm going to have to get singing lessons because I'm not so good."
