Tried my best: Fergie apologises for National Anthem performance

Fergie performed the national anthem before the 2018 NBA All Star Game

"I was hallucinating on a daily basis", Fergie said.

The singer took creative liberties with the traditional song, and while she remembered the words and was perfectly in pitch, the audience simply didn't care for her version.

Some even called her performance the "worst rendition ever". Celebrities like Chris Rock lined the courtside seats at the Staples Centre for the game.

The NBA players and spectators stood up and respected both the Canadian and American national anthems at the NBA All Star game on Sunday featuring Team LeBron vs Team Curry.

Unfortunately for Fergie, Sunday's performance left her in infamy.

Now, if singing out of pitch to the point of the song's being almost unrecognizable was her "intended tone", then damn she sure is right about being a risk taker.

Fergie is now apologizing after the criticism she received for her national anthem performance at last night's NBA All-Star game, but asserts her intentions (and efforts) were good-natured.

Jack Nicholson watches the action from the sidelines. The songstress went on to say, "I'm a risk taker artistically, but clearly this rendition didn't strike the intended tone". Later she added, "People think I am dragging Fergie but I have never been so entertained during an anthem. Leave my Fergie alone", Shaq said.

Mariah Carey gave her some sound advice: "Dahling, nobody needs to listen to that". It was different. It was sexy.

Famed basketball commentator Charles Barkley joked that he "needed a cigarette" after Fergie's performance during the TNT halftime show.
