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.

people are such bores.. just because something‘s been done in a particular way for 200 years, doesn‘t mean it needs to be done that same way for the next 200 as well

it‘s a basketball game, not a presidential inauguration or a state visit ffs, changing things up a bit won‘t hurt anyone

^I mean, I appreciate her take on the song to make it more Jazzy & sexier but the execution is just bad. The amount of off-key notes she was singing. It could've been much better. But then again, Fergie has always been a messy live vocalist.

I don't see why she's being trashed so badly for it... it doesn't sound great but it's not the worst either.

It's not very good but it's not like she butchered it anyway. She was ok.

Although I disagree with the backlash she's getting it's extremely unfair as is common these days. The only issue with the performance isn't the arrangement it's her singling technique and the amount of times she went flat and off key.

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

The arrangement was interesting and I agree that it doesn’t have to be all traditional, but her singing was just awful and no arrangement would change that

It was hilarious tho and I think Americans are too butthurt over this

I saw her rendition on youtube. I thought it´s going to be worse to be honest. If you´re not able to tell when someone is pitchy you´d be think it´s a good performance. The thing is she looked weird, like being under the influence or high AND most important of all, a national hymn should be sang in a certain way. While I agree is valid a singer changes and adapt a song to his/her voice (everyone does it and I like and expect a professional singer to do it) there are certain things, like singing a national anthem that must be done respectfully and with solemnity, the jazzy and sexy arrangement was not the problem but her body language and vocal inflections, people were laughing cause they thought it was a joke. The saddest thing is Fergie is an artist with years in the business and should be respected, people should laugh on new artists, not on veteran ones, but that´s the world we live in.

Lol I was surprised about that too. Didn't realize the Black Eyed Peas had THAT many GRAMMYs.

I honestly didn't think she was bad and expected something 10000 worse based on the hate and bad press.
