Oh my god, it went bad.
Just watch for yourself.
People were stunned and horrified.
Including the NBA players at the game.
😳 😳 😳 😳 😳 😳 😳 😳
A lot of people sympathized.
Others called it "disrespectful."
It even inspired a ~challenge~.
UPDATE: Fergie has responded to the jokes about her performance, saying she did her best.
“I’ve always been honored and proud to perform the national anthem and last night I wanted to try something special for the NBA,” she told BuzzFeed News in a statement. “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.”
