Last night, the NBA All-Stars game took place. Before the game started, singer Fergie took center stage (erm court), and belted out the National Anthem.
The performance didn't go as planned for Fergie, who thought she was killin' it with a fresh rendition. What viewers got instead was a cross between a strangled duck and Fergie trying to channel Marilyn Monroe.
The performance was so bad, that the basketball players were visibly annoyed by the singer. Some were even laughing at the singer.
Social media definitely made their feelings known. Even celebrities called out Fergie for her performance.
Fergie did apologize for the performance, saying she 'tried her best.'
My Two Cents
I finally sat down and watched the performance and it really was terrible. I wouldn't call it the worst performance (Roseanne Barr still takes first place for the worst rendition of the National Anthem), but it definitely takes second place.
I do have to hand it to Fergie though. She is a singer who likes to do things differently. Sadly, it didn't work out. When it comes to the National Anthem, don't try to color outside the lines. Sing it the right way.
