Breaking News
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Fergie tried something different with her national anthem at the NBA All-Star Game, and not everybody was cheering. The Black Eyed Peas singer’s slow, bluesy rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” on Sunday night wasn’t particularly well received at Staples Center or on social media before the 67th edition of the NBA’s annual showcase.

After stealing the show at the Grammy Awards, it’s no surprise that all eyes were on Blue Ivy Carter while she sat courtside with mom Beyoncé at the NBA All-Star Game. Despite the action on the court, Sunday — Team LeBron James bested Team Stephen Curry with a score of 148-145 — the star-studded front row was quite the distraction. The mother-daughter duo was joined by Beyoncé’s own mom, Tina Knowles Lawson, who sat next to her husband, Richard Lawson. Both the 36-year-old singer and her 6-year-old daughter sported sunglasses, with Blue rocking round sunnies while Beyoncé went for a fashion-forward pair of small frame glasses.

Taking the court at Los Angeles’ Staples Center in a tight, black dress, the 42-year-old “A Little Work” singer performed a sultry rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” reworking the tune to more of a jazzy beat. At points, the star appeared to struggle to hit notes, though she closed out the tune with some impressive vibrato, telling the arena, “Let’s play some basketball!” Throughout the performance, the camera caught an array of expressions of those on the court and in the crowd at the game. Shortly after Fergie sung her final note, many were already tweeting about her anthem. “Fergie’s national anthem finished
