SAN ANTONIO - Update 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.
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."
If you haven’t watched Fergie’s performance yet -- and want to ignore all the signs why you shouldn’t -- it’s at the bottom of the article.

Fergie's national anthem finished 30 minutes ago and I still haven't recovered. A part of me will never be the same. — Isaac (@WorldofIsaac) February 19, 2018
