It's not like Fergie has a successful career that this performance could have ruined.

I didn‘t think it was bad. Different, but not bad.

Why do national anthems always have to be sung as if they were written by Mozart? Time to put some oomph in there after 250 years.

Let’s be honest, she’s never been much of a singer. Singing shouldn’t be laugh out loud funny.

Because it's from Mozart's time.

She basically checked every national anthem bad singing-technique and stereotype in a single try.

She has a great voice.
Unlike other things that wither, she preserves. She’s a constant in a world of relentless flux. She’s a beacon of immortality. Bitch, she’s Madonna.

Agreed, not one of the best vocalists out there, but not bad either

She is in the same league as Jessica Simpson



By their facial expressions you'd think they were slaying and projecting flawlessly, when all that is audible is pure struggle and weird mannerisms.

It ends up sounding amateurish, american idol-like. For example, I don't expect fans of yesteryear dance-focused acts to know anything about a vocal delivery, but it seems the public really noticed the lack of vocal talent this time, I'm pleasantly surprised.

She should never have been to perform again after such performance, especially when she has been irrelevant for years.

I think it wasn't so bad, she can sing and it just sounded different, but the didn't sing it bad. I feel sorry for her getting all the negative press, comments and so on now :(

It was not a good performance but the backlash is just too much! Fergie is very talented!

Is she though? Like actually? she lost the key about 50 times during that performance and I can't say I've ever seen a performance where I would say she is a good singer.
