Grammy-winning artist Fergie performed the US National Anthem at an NBA All-Star Game on Sunday night and even she admits it didn’t turn out as she’d hoped

Proving even the best musical talent in the world can make major errors in judgement, Stacy Ann Ferguson aka Fergie, received a roasting for this performance of The Star-Spangled Banner at an NBA All-Star Game in the US on Sunday night.

 

Social media was awash with criticism for the performance with outspoken high-profile celebrities like Roseanne Barr (who memorably shouted the national anthem back in the '90s) tweeted, "Who saw Fergie's national anthem performance at the NBA All-Star Game? I think mine was better lowkey."

But in a total show of class, the eight-time Grammy-winning Black Eyed Peas singer released a sorry I messed up statement to TMZ saying, "I've always been honoured 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."
