LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA — Perspectively, Fergie took the highly-controversial “Star Spangled Banner” out to the shed for 40 lashes during All-Star weekend.
During pre-game ceremony for the NBA All-Star game — Team Lebron and Team Stephen — Fergie brought a lot of anticipation to the arena.
Fans thought they were going to see her perform with power and grace.

Instead, the crowd-filled facility was seemingly rendered helpless upon hearing the merciless vocals drag Music Theory 101 to hell and back.
In the video below, the look on everyone’s faces says it all.
Note: If Fergie was somehow giving an audio demonstration of what pain the “Star-Spangled Banner” represents to the Black community … JOB…WELL..DONE! The agony and injustice cannot be misconstrued now.
Even America’s Funniest Videos‘ Bob Saget came with the shade via Twitter.
Fergie’s rendition of the National Anthem was originally written by Francis Scott Out of Key.

Roseanne Barr probably had the worst national anthem performance, recorded. If you’re interested in hers, you can hear it below.
However, Fergie’s was so “unusual” that even Barr had to comment on the spectacle, herself.
Who saw Fergie's national anthem performance at the NBA All Star Game? I think mine was better lowkey

And, what makes things more interesting — and equivocally embarrassing — is that Fergie is a vocal judge on The Four, a show similar to America’s Got Talent, The Voice, American Idol, The X-Factor, etc.

How — after vocally torching those hardwood floors — can Fergie return for Season 2 of The Four and judge anyone’s musical aspirations?

As for Diddy and Khaled, they’ve remained directly silent via Twitter regarding their co-host’s All-Star weekend, national anthem performance.
Although, it’s possible that Diddy did toss a little shade into the mix this morning.
Temporarily closed for spiritual maintenance.

However, his tweet’s motive is unconfirmed.
Too, Fergie has seemed to socially disappear as well.
