Chaka Khan Got Trolled For Her Performance At The NBA All-Star Game

Chaka Khan's long national anthem in the NBA All Star Game draws Fergie's comparisons

Chaka Khan gave Fergie a vocal run for her money with her unique take on the US national anthem before Sunday's NBA All-Star Game.

The soul songstress had taken to the stage to bring a level of extreme melisma to "The Star-Spangled Banner" and many were not feeling it as they believed she was "all over the place". She is a living legend, but I DID NOT like that rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner AT ALL". Showing up at the NBA All-Star Game to sing the anthem was Chaka Khan, known for going through the fire, and for being every woman.

In 2018, Fergie made the legendary attempt to sex-up the National Anthem. Blindly aiming for a certain Marilyn Monroe sense of charm, she ushered her way into the hall of fame of bad National Anthem renditions.

In 2018, Fergie seemed to nearly be sex-ing up the anthem, performing it in a style some compared to Marilyn Monroe.

Some, on the contrary, defended Khan's version of the anthem.

But what fans fixated on was the very first line - one instructs the other to move to the next cell, saying, "Not the American". The trailer shows a group of workers building a railroad somewhere in freezing cold Russian Federation .

It should be noted that while the performances were similar, Khan gave the audience seven more seconds of anthem than Fergie, who clocked in at around 135 seconds.

Is it even worse than Fergie's from years ago?

Jennifer Hudson got a big thumbs-up for her Kobe tribute performance.

We all know the internet is undefeated, and below is some of the feedback from Chaka Khan's performance.
