NBA All-Star Game: That Fergalicious National Anthem
Before the 2018 NBA All-Star Game started, former “Black Eyed Peas” singer Fergie brought fans to their feet for a National Anthem that was …. well, a different rendition than normal.
ICYMI: See it for yourself here!
Viewers took to Twitter to express their reactions to this ~risky~ version of the ‘Star Spangled Banner.’

Fergie’s rendition of the National Anthem was originally written by Francis Scott Out of Key.

Just heard Fergie sing the national anthem.
Ears normally bleed uncontrollably, right?

Chance and Steph had the best reaction to Fergie’s interpretation of the national anthem. I would’ve been in tears.

However, the 19-time Grammy nominated singer broke her silence by making an apology on Monday.
‘I’ve always been honored and proud to perform the national anthem and last night I wanted to try something special for the NBA. I’m a risk taker artistically, but clearly this rendition didn’t strike the intended tone. I love this country and honestly tried my best.’
