The 42-year old ex-Black Eye Peas songstress appeared at the NBA All-Star-Game last Sunday with the honour of singing ‘The Star Spangled Banner’, but unfortunately for her, people were not living for it.
Located at Los Angeles Staples Centre, Fergie tried her best to do a sexy & sultry version of the American national anthem, (think Marilyn Monroe or Lana Del Rey-esque), but what she gave out was just very draggy vibratos and screechy high notes.
Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel and others in the stadium could be seen snickering. Even athletes were seen getting in a few laughs, Golden State Warrior Draymond Green was spotted on camera struggling to keep a straight face at the ‘Fergalicious’-singer’s attempt.
Take a look at the video below & judge for yourself:
Fergie’s rendition left some viewers scratching their heads — and rushing to Twitter to share their opinions, check out some hilariously harsh tweets right after her performance:
#Fergie didn’t sing the National Anthem that America needed, she sang the anthem that America deserved. 😂

Fergie’s anthem woke pigs and sheep in petting zoos all across America.

#Fergie sounded like a white girl auditioning for the part of Effie in Dream Girls and none of her friends stopped her.
