Fergie's performance of the National Anthem at the NBA All Star Game was not well received by the internet.  It was a very bold choice in a rendition that sounded almost like a jazz trio took over the song.  How does it compare to some of the worst?  Well take a look.

 

 

I would say this perfomance might be 9 or 10.  It's comparable to Christina Aguilera's because she technically is proficient, she just had a HORRIBLE rendition.  Let's hope we can learn from this and realize that most Americans want to just keep it simple and honor our country.

A few tips for those who are singing the national anthem:

1. First be sure you actually can sing.

2. Memorize those lyrics again and again.

3. This isn't a chance for you to showboat.

4. The song should take less than 2 minutes.

5. If the spirit moves you, just keep it under control.
