Fergie’s Controversial National Anthem – Part 1

Fergie’s Controversial National Anthem – Part 1


[APPLAUSE]
>>The other event that dominated headlines this weekend was the NBA All
Star Game held right her in Los Angeles. The game kicked off last night with
Fergie singing the national anthem.>>[LAUGH]
>>Good lord.>>Why ya’ll laughing?>>[LAUGH]>>Hold, hold.>>She didn’t even finish saying it.>>Wait for it.>>No.
>>And after Pink slayed her performance at the big game a few weeks ago,
the pressure was on, wouldn’t you say, America?>>Yeah.>>Well, did Fergie nail it? Let’s judge for yourself. [MUSIC]>>[LAUGH]
>>[APPLAUSE]>>My goodness.>>My God.>>So-
>>Damn.>>That gave me so much life. I don’t care what anybody says,
that gave me life.>>I literally watched
it like 36 times over.>>Yeah.
>>You and I both.>>It really made me feel like it
was Jessica Rabbit on a Percocet.>>I know, it was like Marilyn Monroe
meets Marvin Gaye but it was on a L fail.>>No, she said
>>[LAUGH]>>I love Fergie though.>>It is being dubbed the worst
rendition of all time. So-
>>Ya’ll, I’m sorry. You guys are cracking me
up in these messages. [LAUGH]
>>[LAUGH]>>No.>>@LJennaRalle said->>No.>>She sounded like,
my God, this is terrible. She sounded like a drunk
girl doing karaoke. Like someone said to her,
you could sing the national anthem, and she replied, hold my beer. And she got up there [SOUND]
>>No, no.>>[APPLAUSE]
>>Girl.>>But I give it to her though,
cuz after she was done, she said, uh-uh, I killed it, I killed it. Let’s play some basketball.>>[CROSSTALK]
>>Okay, all right.>>And that actually made me happy.>>[LAUGH]
>>Lord.>>The look on her face, she literally walked off that stage giving
herself a pat on the back like, nailed it.>>Yeah.>>Right?>>This is the thing, though, okay? She was bad, but-
>>No.>>You’ve got somebody else out there and
you know who you are.>>Are you talking about Mr. Carl?>>Carl Lewis.>>Okay.>>Can we play that a little bit?>>I didn’t know who Carl Lewis was.>>He’s a track star. [MUSIC]>>[LAUGH]
>>Uh-oh, I’ll make up for it now.>>Uh-oh, uh-oh.>>Okay, so
I did not know who Carl Lewis was. And because of this happening yesterday
I was reading funny comments on like the people that were posting this video. And I was with my husband, and my husband was like they were saying
she was as bad as Carl Lewis. I’m like who the hell is Carl Lewis? So because of Fergie, I had to go and
find who Carl Lewis was.>>Now you know.>>I had to YouTube it.>>Here’s the difference though. Carl Lewis owned that he cracked on that.>>[CROSSTALK] He said, oh-uh.>>And he said, I’m gonna make
it up to you all, don’t worry. You’ll get a rebate on that one.>>But he didn’t. I don’t think he did though.>>Yeah.
>>He never did. That’s the thing about
the national anthem. The legendary opera singer Jessye Norman
said that it’s a hard song, and you know this.>>It is.>>Cuz it’s 13 octaves. So for the general public it’s really hard
to sing because you have to go through so many different ranges. She suggested that our national anthem
shouldn’t be the Star Spangled Banner, it should be America the Beautiful
because it’s only one octave.>>[SOUND]
>>So that’s the reason why.

  1. All anthems are hard to sign. If you know you dont have the range make sure to mold it to your range. Its doable

  2. Adrienne "Why y'all laughing?"
    Me "Bitch you know why we laughing, the same reason you laughing" 😂😂😂😂 I love Adrienne though

  3. I think what messed her up was the the way she tried to change the song up n put her own twist on it. She should have sang it the original way n just held the notes longer that’s it.

  4. Oh my God – Nooooooo🙊🙈😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😅

  5. I'm listening, I'm laughing, I'm agreeing, I'm nodding my head buuuuuuuut HUNNYYYY my eyes cant stop staring at how gorgeous Loni looks with the head wrap ❤❤

  6. it’s not even that big of a deal for people to keep talking about it , like it’s over , and don’t people realize that celebrities have feeling too ? i’m pretty sure when all this was going on fergie was crying , talking bout she was a disgrace , you wanna know something ur a disgrace !! and that’s said and done✔️ !!

  7. 😂😂😂😂
    She said:
    "Jessica Rabbit on Percocet"

    Best Description EVEEERRR😁👌🤣🤣🤣🤣

  8. Even the players couldn't hold it together. Fergie is a skilled singer and part of being a performer is taking risks. Some pay off, some do not. The Star Spangled Banner is just one of the songs you do not take chances with. It's already a hard song to sing and it is a symbol of our country. You cannot mess it up without getting criticized.

  9. Carl Lewis and Fergie did poorly for the National Anthem, but let's be real: Rosanne Barr had the absolute worst rendition of the Star Spangled Banner.

  10. I think Fergie just wanted attention . It was probably a way for her to be noticed and get attention again because Fergie can sing so this made no damn sense.

  11. This is the BEST
    Review/Reaction to the
    FiascoRendition of
    Anthem by FERGIE"Bann
    Nerrr errrr waaaave"wtf?!
    Carl Lewis & Roseanne
    Barr was awful too..but,
    They are NOT SINGERS&
    FERGIE is,so what's her
    Excuse for singing it so
    Awful?!! Oh..I know why..
    ..she needs the Studio….
    Autotune,to fix up her
    Vocals/voice..yup! that
    Sounds right.

  12. i think lonny meant 13 notes cause it’s literally impossible to sing 13 octaves. even a piano doesn’t have 13 octaves LOL

  13. You can tell Loni was being really nice and trying to help Fergie escape from Tamara’s and Brenda’s roasts by bringing up the octaves, but it just wasn’t working. 😂🤣💀

  14. N.A. will definitely expose you if you suck at singing..case and point. She should do duet with Carl, it would probably sell millions.

  15. Carl Lewis is not a singer. He is a runner athlete. Fergie can't run like Carl. And she beat the national anthem to death with her singing.

  16. I remember when Fergie sang the national anthem. I couldn't stop laughing.🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  17. For the record, the star spangled banner only ranges an octave and a half. For any non singers it’s probably difficult, but for anyone who’s actually a singer, all you have to do is find the right starting note, and most singers have the key where they can sing it without any issues. It’s really not difficult.

  18. God! What a Dumpster fire!…But Yes…Carl Lewis has to hold the title of worst EVER rendition of the National Anthem! At least Fregie didnt forget the Words!

  19. "13 octaves" wtf? that's not possible. to put that in perspective, freddie mercury had nearly 5 octaves. yea no. the national anthem has 1.5 octaves. and maybe she meant 13 notes but def not 13 octaves.

  20. I hate that Fergie was so publicly humiliated. She put her heart and soul into singing for everyone and then for EVERYONE to make fun of her. Shame on everyone who laughed. She was just trying to do her best.

  21. Fergie cannot sing without autotune. She can not sing live like Whitney, Adele, Christina.. etc.. it sounded awful 😤😡
