Fergie performed “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the NBA All-Star game, and boy did she cause a stir. The Grammy-nominated singer is all about taking risks, so she went with a slow, jazzy rendition of the national anthem. And now, Twitter can’t stop trolling her for it! It was evident the strange rendition didn’t sit well with everyone, and the Internet had a field day with it in the form of memes. So, we’ve gathered some hilarious Fergie national anthem memes for you to see what all the buzz is about!
After her NBA All-Star Game performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” Fergie apologized for letting so many people down after taking such an artistic risk. She also said she loves America and that it was an honor for her to perform at the big game.
With that said, there are a lot of people who support Fergie’s NBA performance. Even Wiz Khalifa took to Twitter to openly appreciate her, saying that it took “guts to be yourself.”
I liked Fergies national anthem. It was orginal and fun just like her. People didn’t like Jimi Hendrix’s version of the anthem at the time he did it but it later became legendary. Takes guts to be yourself ??

Fergie’s ex-husband, Josh Duhamel also did his part and brought her flowers to show his support. He was seen carrying a bouquet of pink roses and a card from their son that read, “I love you always and forever mommy.” Despite the split, Duhamel is doing his best to keep his ex’s spirits high.
Mariah Carey was also asked about the criticism Fergie was facing. The singer waved her hand and said, “Darling, nobody needs to listen to that!”
