Fergie's National Anthem Attempt Slammed As The 'Worst Rendition Ever'

She attempted to put a jazz spin on "The Star-Spangled Banner."

Fergie took a stab at the national anthem during the NBA All-Star Game at the Staples Center on Sunday night, and it didn’t go so well. 

Her attempt to add a jazz twist to the “Star-Spangled Banner” ― already a notoriously difficult song to sing ― prompted some pretty strong feelings. 

During the game’s halftime report, Shaquille O’Neal defended it. 

“Fergie, I love you, it was different, it was sexy,” he said. 

“Damn right it was different,” Charles Barkley said. “I needed a cigarette after that.” 

“Leave it alone,” Shaq replied. 

Response on Twitter was less flattering:
