Tbh when i saw the Fergie video I started getting fat, my acne was getting worse and I got depressed but I saw this and I got clear skin I got a six pack and I'm really happy.
Rebecca Vocal Athlete
Fergie no where to be seen
Skyla Helbig
To all those people saying that she lip synced: She sang ALONG with a prerecorded track, no lip sync. She listened to herself sing so she can be on beat. That's it.
Archie Eguna
Actually she was lipsyncing! But still awesome 😎
Myla Jones
Fergie probably scrolling through these comments 😂😂😂
1 like = 1 prayer for my girl Fergie 😂😂

Oh, say! can you see by the dawn's early light What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming; Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight, O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming? And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. Oh, say! does that star-spangled banner yet wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave
100 Subs without any videos !
**Fergie has left the chat**

Beyonce was at that allstar game too!!! Why didn't they just pass the mic to her after the first 10 seconds when Fergie was singing like DAMN

Who came here after angry prash video?😆
Shahida Bashir
While Fergie, and Christina Aguilera before her, focused more on the quality of their voice and hitting high pitches, and therefore forgetting the spirit of the anthem, Beyonce had the genius to be utterly melodious while also sounding patriotic and so very. proud of her nation. And it is high praise for the US national anthem, coming from a Pakistani.
Clydene Naa Shome Burgesson
Who else is here because of Fergie 😂😂😂😂
Isaac Lepulu
the leader of our nation and Obama wow
Emily Morris

Daesha Soto
Who else is watching this to cure cancer from Fergie’s performance 🤧😕
Fate Destiny
A foreigner here, with a question for black people. The American national anthem was written by a slave owning racist, who actually fought against the abolition of slavery. Do you not think it's a conflict of interests to sing his music?
these were better times... Fergie didn't murder the American national anthem and Obama was still president... I'm not even American but gosh, i pity those who are.
Cream Soda

To everyone saying she was lip syncing: She wasnt, she was singing along with a pre-recorded tape, but she couldn't hear the beat properly, hence the part where she took her earpiece out.
Emma Ortiz
Who else came to cleanse themselves of Fergie
*I'm still surprised that this is lip-synced;* it sounds so live plus she's excellent at lip-syncing unlike a vocal legend we know.
Abena Danquah
Lol 6 months later, I mistakenly watched Fergie again. So now I gotta go through all these videos to ensure I can sleep tonight lollllll
MO Rishi

She was not lip synicing...she was singing along her pr recorded vision. Thats why you can hear an echo at 1:25
