Fergie sang this year’s “Star-Spangled Banner” at the NBA All-Star Game, and the performance was so shockingly bad it brought players to laughter and is currently drawing brutal mockery from people online that have nothing better to do but criticize the pop singer from the safety of their living rooms.
The former Black Eyed Peas singer delivered her unique rendition of the anthem just before tip-off of the 2018 All-Star Game at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
It’s hard to fault Fergie for attempting to do something different with a song that’s more worn out than Jeanine Pirro’s tires — but the rendition was so awful, it even brought Draymond Green to laughter:

While Golden State Warriors’ reaction was lighthearted, Twitter was far less generous to Fergie, who became a trending topic on the platform immediately after her performance.

Not sure what Fergie was going for on that national anthem performance but if it was “my friends drunk mom acting sexy” she nailed it.
