The National Anthem is a really hard song to sing, and Fergie's brutal rendition of the "Star Spangled Banner" at the NBA All-Star Game Sunday night is proof of that. The former Black Eyed Peas singer was ripped to shreds on Twitter because of how bad it was.

Here's how Twitter reacted to the disaster:
"Meanwhile back in the states... I leave for a couple of days and y'all lose your muthaf—ing mind!! Why did this happen? Not everyone supposed to do this y'all! You might as well should have ask me to sing. [What the f—]?!" Saturday Night Live's Leslie Jones wrote on Twitter.

We may all be fighting over gun control but I think we can all stand united against Fergie's rendition of the National Anthem. #NBAAllStar— Mike (@MikeAmmo) February 19, 2018
"Damn right it was different. I needed a cigarette after that," Charles Barkley said during TNT's halftime report.

When Fergie said “bannererrrr” it was a wrap. Hell it was a wrap at “oh say can you see”— Akilah Hughes (@AkilahObviously) February 19, 2018
Fergie was a member of the Black Eyed Peas, and released her second solo album, Double Dutchess last year. The record includes the singles "L.A. Love (La La)," "M.I.L.F.$," "Life Goes On," "You Already Know" and "A Little Work." The album was not a big hit, only reaching No. 19 on the Billboard 200 chart during its first week with just 20,870 copies sold.
In addition to the low sales for her album, Fergie's marriage to Josh Duhamel ended this fall. The couple was married for eight years and have a son, Axl.
