Serene Branson Suffered 'Migraine Aura,' Not a StrokeSerene Branson, the CBS reporter who flubbed her lines on Grammy night, did not suffer a stroke but rather a migraine aura.

Serene BransonA video of CBS journalist Serene Branson flubbing her words while reporting on last night's Grammy results has gone viral -- but not for the reason you might think.

The 17-second clip shows Branson completely unable to pronounce any of the words she's trying to say as she slurs her way through the incomprehensible report. The Telegraph reports that Branson was hospitalized out of concern she might've suffered a stroke on-air, while the New York Daily News reports that she was examined by EMTs and sent home.

UPDATE: CBS 2 posted a statement about Branson's condition, saying "Serene Branson was examined by paramedics on scene immediately after her broadcast. Her vital signs were normal.

According to Branson's biography on the CBS Los Angeles site, the Los Angeles native is a two-time Emmy nominee. Watch the video after the jump.
