Subtitles:
- Wow, that was so bad! - I'm out of breath! ("The Star-Spangled Banner") ("Fergalicious") ("The Star-Spangled Banner") ♪ By the dawn's early light ♪ ("The Star-Spangled Banner") - This is embarrassing. (laughs) - Uh, ya damn right I've seen the video of Fergie singin' the national anthem. - I read about it on Twitter, like, oh, you have to see this. - I feel so bad for her. I think she's singing and she's like, whoa, I think she just got carried away. - But, you know, the national anthem is arguably the most publicly performed thing ever. - Who rearranges the national anthem? You just have to be so...Fergie. - I think you can add a little bit musically, but what she did was almost just like changing the emotion or the mood. - She made a choice. She made that choice and she stuck with it the whole time. - I just don't know if it worked out this way, you know? - Fergie is always going to be Fergalicious, and I believe that, but the way that she sang it, I think they called it jazzy. - We never heard the first person sing the national anthem, so, sure, go ahead, that doesn't bother me. - You know, it's cool. It's cool to mix it up. (drumroll) - No. (laughs) I'm scared now. - Like Fergie sings it? 'Cause I can't. I can't even come close. She's like a diamond in the sky. - Umm, that's a no. - Not at all. Not in the least. Absolutely not. - I mean, I will sing the national anthem right now, but I'm also scared. - I'm down to sing the national anthem. - Yeah, I'd be down to give it a try. - I am so confident and ready to sing the national anthem. I'm literally the best singer ever. - Yeah, I think I can sing it right now. - Vocal warm-up, okay. (sings vocal scale) (hums) - I can't do that! ("The Star-Spangled Banner") - Where's my pitch pipe? People? Where's my pitch pipe? (laughs) - I'm so nervous. It's totally fine. I can start whenever? - We'll just give it a go. (laughs) ♪ Oh, say can you see ♪ ♪ By the star's early light ♪ ♪ What so proudly we hailed ♪ ♪ At the twilight's last gleaming ♪ ♪ Whose broad stripes and bright stars ♪ - Oh my God, I'm so nervous! I was not nervous at all! How do people do this in front of a million people broadcasting in their face? ♪ Through the perilous fight ♪ - Fight. - Flight? Fight? - It's fight. ♪ For 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 ♪ (applause) - I definitely messed up the words. - You know what, it's harder than it looks, people. - I literally could feel my nerves and my voice. - And so I cannot begin to imagine what it's like for the icons of the world to do this in front of billions of people. - It's cool to take artistic liberty, but just maybe run that by someone and see if it's tasteful before you go for it. (soft guitar music) (hinge creaks)
