Fergie’s rendition of the National Anthem at the NBA All-Stars game was not a hit with everyone.

Many took to social media blasting the Glamorous singer’s slowed-down jazz style version of the Star-Spangled Banner and Fergie has now apologized for her performance.

Fergie revealed to TMZ, “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,” said Fergie, who performed the National Anthem for President and Mrs. Obama at the 2009 White House Easter Egg Roll. “I love this country and honestly tried my best.”
