Fergie inexplicably butchers the National Anthem, leaving jaws on floor; the internet explodes

Fergie went for a little switch-up with the national anthem, but ended up dropping the ball.

The former Black Eyed Peas vocalist sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” at Sunday night’s NBA All-Star game in Los Angeles–and her curious rendition had players and fans bursting out in laughter.

The anthem performance, marked by a number of unique inflections, was immediately dubbed the worst in basketball history–even worse than Olympic track and fielder Carl Lewis’ legendary delivery at the 1993 NBA finals.

Viewers noted that even the all star athletes at the event were unable to hide their surprise, with Golden State Warrior Draymond Green visibly breaking down in laughter.

Other Twitter users mocked Fergie’s performance in a number of ways, from comparing it to Marilyn Monroe’s famous “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” number to describing it as akin to a “drunk mom acting sexy.”

One user suggested that Fergie’s ex-husband, Josh Duhamel, “made the right choice” in separating from the singer.

Another user considered Fergie’s version of the national anthem so bad as to call for a “memory scrub” from the film “Men in Black.”

LeBron James’ group of all stars won the game against the team assembled by Stephen Curry. But it was Fergie’s spin on the “Star-Spangled Banner” that was the talk of the night.
