Fergie's national anthem performance raises eyebrows

Getty						Fergie sings the national anthem prior to the 2018 NBA All Star Game

Grammy winning singer Fergie opened the show with the National Anthem, and people immediately hated her rendition. Instead of honoring the flag with a traditional version, she chose to let her own freak flag fly - and let's just say, "Star Spangled Banner" Fergie style didn't sound too hot.

Players and crowd members laughed or appeared less than impressed with her "sexy" performance of the song.

At the very least, Fergie now recognizes that the final representation of her performance was actually not the sound she intended. I leave for a couple of days and y'all lose your muthaf***ing mind!

18, 2018, Fergie, whose real name is Stacy Ann Ferguson, performed the national anthem at the NBA All-Star Game - but her delivery was less than stellar.

As seen in the video before, Fergie's approach to singing it was comical to his fellow teammates Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry, as well as LeBron James, DeMar DeRozan, and even Chance The Rapper, who sat front row.

Khloe Kardashian was one of many to add her thoughts on the performance: "This All Star opening is confusing me", she tweeted on Sunday.

One day after the scandal, she is still trending on Twitter, but Fergie is yet to address the situation.

TMZ caught up with Fergie following her musical blunder, and she clearly knew her performance didn't live up to par. "She won me over today". "So I just tried to get through it, but I couldn't hear anything with 50,000 drunk a-- booing, screaming "you fat f--,' giving me the finger and throwing bottles at me during the song they 'respect" so much".

Mariah's comments come after several fans branded the performance as "the worst ever", and many celebrities took to social media to express their confusion at the whole pre-match display. WTF is going on? It was different, it was sexy'.

Speaking at half time, former National Basketball Association player Charles Barkley said, "I need a cigarette after that", while Shaquille O'Neal defended Fergie's performance, describing it as "different" and "sexy".
