Fergie’s rendition of the “Star-Spangled Banner” is considered by many to be one of the worst performances ever. The singer sang a bluesy or jazzy version of the national anthem and the world has become delighted with schadenfreude.
Back in 1990, Roseanne Barr sang the national anthem much to America’s dismay, and even she came out to slam the Black Eyed Peas’ singer’s version of the legendary song.
As you may know, the Twittersphere has been ruthless in their criticism of the Fergalicious entertainer and Roseanne Barr took the opportunity to jump in on the bandwagon.
The 65-year-old wrote, “I think mine was better, lowkey.” Roseanne performed the song, written by Francis Scott Key in 1814, in a high-pitched shriek and finished off her rendition by grabbing her crotch back in 1990.
Who saw Fergie's national anthem performance at the NBA All Star Game? I think mine was better lowkey

President George H.W. Bush said her version of the song was “disgraceful.” Reportedly, Fergie’s rendition of the Star Spangled Banner is under fire, not for her singing ability, but for her attempt to make it more soulful and bluesy.
In clips shared online, the A-List-attendees in the audience appeared to be dismayed by the song, with the likes of Chance The Rapper and Jimmy Kimmel sitting with an unimpressed look on their faces. Fans of Stephen Curry noticed that he appeared to be trying to stop himself from laughing.
Tristan Thompson, the boyfriend of Khloe Kardashian and the father of her child, said, “this All-Star opening is confusing to me? WTF is going on? Anyone?”
Celebrity Insider reported yesterday that the bashing of Fergie is even worse than her performance alongside Slash at the Super Bowl in 2011.
During America’s most televised event, social media users joked about her “Wonder Woman”-pose during the final seconds of the show. Fans of Guns and Roses stated they “butchered” the legendary track from Appetite For Destruction, “Sweet Child o’ Mine.”
