Twitter hilariously trolls Fergie's national anthem performance


SAN ANTONIOUpdate 3 p.m.

Fergie apologized Monday afternoon for the anthem airball at Sunday's NBA All-Star Game. "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," the singer told TMZ.

Original story:

In case you haven’t heard yet, Fergie sang the national anthem at Sunday’s NBA All-Star Game and it left some people in tears — of laughter.

The singer tried to throw her own flavor to the song but if you watch the video it looks like she’s struggling a bit with those high notes.

Fergie gets a LOT of side-eye when the camera pans out to the basketball players and some celebrities, including Jimmy Kimmel.

Naturally, Twitter did its thing and started trolling her rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner."
