Internet Reacts To Fergie US National Anthem Performance At 2018 NBA All-Star Game



Fergie had the honor to sing the national anthem at the 2018 NBA All-Star Game on Sunday, Feb. 18, at the Los Angeles Staples Center.

The 42-year-old delivered an intense version of the "Star Spangled Banner," hitting and sustaining some high notes and clearly giving it her all. However, not everyone is a fan.

Many say that the "Fergalicious" singer overdid her performance. At one point, Golden State Warriors power forward Draymond Green and television host Jimmy Kimmel were spotted laughing during Fergie's breathy performance.

Stephen Curry had to take time off of the court to like a tweet poking fun of how everyone in the venue — from basketball players to celebrity fans — were trying to hide their laughter while Fergie belts out the national anthem on live television watched by an average of 1.401 million people across the United States. 

Funniest Tweets About Fergie's Performance

As expected, social media roasted the former member of the Black Eyed Peas. Many were reminded of he infamous renditions of the song by Roseanne and Carl Lewis.  

Some say that the performance was inspired by either "Happy Birthday, Mr. President" or "Santa, Baby."

Others think that Fergie was trying to channel Amy Winehouse or Marilyn Monroe at the 2018 NBA All-Star Game. Perhaps, Jessica Rabbit?

Maybe Fergie was as confused as everyone else as to how she wanted to perform the national anthem at this important occasion, so she did all possible versions at the same time. 

The Twitter-verse argued that the "Big Girls Don't Cry" singer's performance is just a reflection of the current state of the United States: a train wreck. 

Even celebrities joined the fun. 

One thing that the singer was able to succeed spectacularly during Sunday's performance: in the midst of the ever so heated political debates, everyone agrees that Fergie's rendition of the "Star-Spangled Banner" goes down as one of the worst of all time. 

Watch the performance below.
