nba highlights basketball amazing big sports Usher 2015 finals game 4 pregame star spangled banner national anthem Cleveland Cavaliers Golden State Warriors

I was REALLY confused with this arrangement..
D. Foxx
Usher did a great job. One of the best in recent history. I'm only 20, but it reminded me of Marvin Gaye's rendition. Usually male vocalists don't do so great with this song, but I'm glad Usher did.
Birdman's Lotion
this could've been 30 seconds shorter
Matrix Jones
Wow he's slowing it down. U could make love to this song.
Usher singing like chilli in the crowd
Okay, so first, Cleveland fans make fun of us warriors fans for blaming the refs for a loss, now it's happening to Cleveland and look who's complaining now?!?! Haha I love it!!!!
Lemon meringue
Why is everyone so dramatic when it comes to the american national anthem

This is not Usher's first time singing The National Anthem, and everytime he sings it, he changes it to fit his voice and it sounds amazing, He just has those killer vocals that sound great in any song. I love artist that don't sing a song the same way all the time.This was beautiful Imo, thank you Usher, well done!! ♡♡♡♡♡
Best moments in US history: Slavery Civil War Pearl Harbour Getting owned in Vietnam 9/11 California drought Upcoming yellowstone supervolcano which will destroy the entire mid-west and send the entire country into a famine
igzoyzyododyy xoyoy6odoydyod
he has a voice of an angel but was quite slow but killed it
"Land of the free" Excuse me while i go puke on the American flag.
Blanca Munguia
I thought is was beautiful. Usher never disappoints. Even if the players do.

The most useless post NBA has EVER posted.
Hahahaha the karma on LeFlop cutting his stupid head on the camera man whilst flopping. The irony..
Only a year ago, but Steph and Lebron look so young.
Tall don't see these clear could not called cheating refs in favor of warriors!
cesar salazar
Beautiful rendition. I don't care what people say about him, Usher is Usher and he's a damn talented man
I didn't like how his hand was in the pocket. That's disrespectful.
Patrick Buettner
since whitney Houston isn't alive anymore if you don't schedule NEYO to sing your National Anthem your failing
Jesse Saeteurn
Chills... Best rendition of the National anthem ever!
oh, "great nation"! To sing or to listen your country's anthem with your hand in the pocket.
This was great!
That's hilarious cause LeBron cut himself flopping all the way to the camera dude
Micki Rodriguez
Usher had it until that last brave. He was going to hit that note but changed his mind. 😂
Mercedes Fortenberry
good job usher proves that men have talent tooo
Cavs are playing like they don't want any part of it.......Blatt as usual only using 6 players. Be resourceful and you guys won't be in trouble had Blatt made some PLAYS
John Charcho
I'm a Warriors fan. I have the most respect for LeBron James. I have never seen so much hate for any athlete in the world. The man never beat his wife or raped any women.  People hate him because he playing basketball. Ray McDonald, Ray Rice, Mayweather, Ben R.#7 Kobe all.these guys have beat or raped women. And people show them more respect then LeBron James. Something wrong with this picture. I'm shocked how hard he is playing. He's a great player. People just want to see this man fail at everything. He was pushed while in air and landed on 1 leg and tired to catch his balance. Now that's how I seen it. This Cavs team is playing hard. I didn't want to see them in the finals. Because of their style of defense and size. Yes LeBron has said some dumb stuff as we all have in time. He has given Cleveland Cavaliers and fans so much hope. I will be the 1 Warriors fan who won't disrespect him in any way. I'm enjoying the games.
Jonah Harding
lol usher turnup
Jeff Tram
Usher killed it! I would say it is the best rendition of the American national anthem in the NBA since Marvin Gaye
Sharon Himes
I love Usher but this was flat out boring.
Brennan Dipippo
Why not let cudder sing man?!?! #clevelandisthereason
#3 on the Cavs is so bad! WHAT ARE YOU DOING? KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE BALL!.... He's the sub for James... RIGGED?!
Not the best rendition
I hate this rendetion
Christian Brown
he was so slow he was taking his time
Lilmama Taurus
Wow he sucked am so surprised bc he has a beautiful voice I felt he held back wow smh
That was not bad at all. Lol, I was on other videos and he was getting dragged through the mud for his performance.
The way he sang the song was too slow thats just my humble opinion.
john k
Jamie Foxx for game 5, Hallelujah Hallelujah.
Usher kinda played it too safe on this one.
Stephanie Aghahowa
he should have just done the whole thing acapella
Alexus Ruff
Alisha Wright
He can sing anything, and I'd listen 🙌👏👏👏
That was literally the worst singing performance I have ever heard in my life... That was like nails on a chalkboard
Way better than fergie’s at nba all star
Very Gracious version. Well done!!
Barney Stinson
should of been jamie fox singing
Joey Crawford should never red again. Why do people say he's a good ref.
Kasa Masaniai Koli
hi baee lol 💯
Dimas D A
good vocal but bad in singing tempo
Michelle Perez
Javier C.J.
Better than Gaga, Marc Anthony, Beyonce or John Legend. He must be more valorated
I almost thought that since he was singing so slow that he was going to run out of time to perform? Darn, the tone of his voice is stunning.Very nice Usher😚😙😊
Was it really necessary to change the song so much with the altered tempo and extra notes? I prefer a clean version sung as written without any twists. Renee Fleming meets that requirement.
phuc duy Le
i expected him to do more than that performance!
One of the best renditions of the national anthem.
Elaine Brown
and the rockets red glaaaaaaarrreee!!!! the bombs bursting IN AAaaaIIIIRRRRRRR!!!!!! Damn that was the best two lines to my ears
much much fucking better and not annoying than that girl who sang in 2k15 cuh...
I am surprised Usher did not bring out his all gold Jordan's.
This was better than I thought it was going to be because I never considered Usher to be a great "vocalist." But he was very smart in his approach to this song. I think he does NOT have great breath support when singing, so to compensate he slowed down the pace of the song which allowed him to sing line by line instead of having to hold certain phrases for a long time, and he started very low, so he had no problem when the higher parts came. I think this rendition sounded nice and it suited his voice and style.
Still better than Fergie's performance.
Ciara Tavares
OH SAY CAN YOU SEE IM CONFUSED. This arrangement was awful. Beats not in sync with his voice. #scratchingmyhead
Akhom Chanthavong
It was kinda too slow..He could've perfected it more to sound better..It still sounded great but something was off...the music in the background seem like it was gonna come on louder but didn't n it threw me off..n the ending was nice but the whole thing was like it was played in slow motion..maybe cause he paused at moments..he should've sang it all the way thru at normal speed n it would've sounded perfect..he made it his own though n it was very rnb..i like it though
Keith James
I thought he was bout to do a R Kelly on us 😂😂😂
