The singer had to apologize and admit that the performance “did not work out.”
Former member of The Black Eyed Peas, American singer Fergie sang the US national anthem before the match of all NBA stars. Twitter users called the performance “the worst in history,” and the video from the match clearly shows how many athletes frowned and laughed during the performance.
The actress decided to rethink the national anthem in a new way and tried to perform it in the style of blues. However, everyone, including the public and sports commentators, considered such performance too provocative and unsuccessful. Several players began to giggle live while still performing the anthem
Twitter users completely ridiculed the performance: they made several remixes, compared the performance of Fergie with other unsuccessful performances and placed emphasis on the reaction of the athletes.

After an ambiguous number, the singer had to apologize for him. She stressed that she tried to perform well, but did not.
It was always a great honor for me to sing the national anthem, and last night I wanted to try something special for the NBA. I am an artistically risky person, but it is obvious that this performance did not fall into the desired tone. I love this country and, honestly, I tried my best.
