In case you still haven't seen this...
So...that happened. Fergie actually felt the need to issue an apology for the Anthem, too:
I've always been honored and proud to perform the national anthem, and last night I wanted to try something special for the NBA. I'm a risk taker artistically, but clearly this rendition didn't strike the intended tone. I love this country and honestly tried my best.
I mean, I don't think an apology was needed...she took a risk like she said and didn't hit it out of the park at all, but maybe it's a lesson that when it comes to one of the most important songs of the country -- maybe just leave it as is.
