I was rushed to the hospital on Friday. The first thing the doctor said was "Candy, you need to stop masturbating!"
I asked him why.
He said "because I am ready to start your exam"

Minus infinity

7 Roseanne Barrs and 8 Carl Lewis' for a combined score of Methica Rabbit

I would say a 3.... because she sounded good when she belted out the high notes.....in contrast to the parts of the song she bizarrely whispered

Jon said...

She tried, poor thing. She has bad advisors. There was nothing wrong with her voice, it was whomever arranged that mess.

11. Perfection. Full five fingered chef's kiss. Mwah.

I don't like Obama's official portrait, so I'm clearly not the one to judge art.

If she was sober and did this on purpose then 1.

Ice Angel said...

That was Fergie? I thought it was Miranda Sings???

Sd Auntie said...

-1000000000. Fergie can't sing.

Truthseeker said...

It was horrible. Sure she can hit some high notes, but she was tone deaf on this one. Her weird accent that she tried to pull off was a joke and her attempt to be Marilyn Monroe was a huge fail.
You can not duplicate Happy Birthday Mr. President, especially not to the National Anthem. Did you even see her wiggle walk to the microphone?
Rosanne did her version for a reason, basically a slap in the face to "celebrites" who have tried to sing the anthem in the past. Fergie, somehow she thought she was sexy and when even the players are giggling, you know you fail

It was bad. But ever since that Kids Incorporated blind I've seen Fergie differently. Felt bad for her yesterday.

Bunny said...

Good lord what was she thinking.

B626 said...

Zero.
She had to be high

Rachel said...

It was abysmal. -10

Terry Teratoma said...

She shouldn't have tried to have sex with the song. That was her 1st mistake.

In the Good Old Days either you could sing or you couldn't. It wasn't manufactured in a studio.

orangesoda said...

A good, solid 0.

Han Niam said...

What’s the appropriate number for cringe? The secondhand embarrassment is still with me this morning like a bad hangover.

Randaleese said...

What a sickening display of a has been who is also no longer 25 and hot.
Fergie’s f*cked.

fustian said...

Wow.

I read this morning that there was some big scandal about the song, but when I listened to it, I thought she did fine. I didn't see it as disrespectful like some people did. She was well rehearsed and on pitch. She didn't doing anything political that I saw.

It WAS turned into a kind of torchy jazz number, but so what. It was interesting.

I don't see what the big deal was. I'd give it at least a 6.

Someone Somewhere said...

It was truly terrible, I was embarrassed for her. Who ever had the bright idea that she needed to TRY to put a sexy spin on it, was badly mistaken. Autotune can't fix that.

Gordon Scott said...

Agree with Fustian. I'm not a fan of her style of singing; it's too affected for me. But I thought she did okay with the anthem. Sure, not the usual arrangement, but definitely not the worst I've heard.

7.

zerooptions said...

Did someone say zero?
I vote zero too!
I'll give her credit for not peeing all over herself like she did before.
fergie go pee pee

lucy said...

this morning when I first watched it I was pissed I found it not only horrible but offensive but I just played it again and I laughed. so I guess that brings my score to solid ZERO. who would ok this? surely there was a sound check

Fufu Lou said...

Watched with my 90 year old grandma, we both winced at the same places and had a good chuckle at the end, poor Fergie, was she drunk or high? Giving her 4 for effort.

Kate K said...

I agree. Leave poor Fergie alone!

Guesser said...

Josh and Axel had to cheer her up. I think Josh knows a lot about her issues, and props to him for not trashing her.

J F said...

Obama's portrait ranked (pun not intended) somewhere between Velvet Elvis and Dogs Playing Poker.

J F said...

-7 for vocals

-31 for weird AF arrangement

+4 for outfit

+7 for hot bod

-3 for using Jennifer Aniston's stylist

+5 for actually knowing what sport she was at

My husband turned to Teen Titans on Cartoon Network because he didn’t want to see the opening. A few moments later his phone is buzzing with Apple news saying what an awful job Fergie had done. When he puts the tv back on it’s over and we get the reaction rewinds but not so much a full recap of her performance.

I didn’t see it live but it seemed like she was singing the wrong lyrics at a point but I’m thinking she may have done that on purpose.

I have a sneaking suspicion that was staged.

Here are my thoughts: Just to add controversy into the mix and this is CDAN so I’m wearing my tin hat to boot as I punch keys.

The anthem has been this political device since the NFL guy began kneeling during the playing of the anthem. The anthem had become so politicized that it was being used as a measure of ones patriotism to the country.

Here we are at the NBA all star game the blackest stage possible. A white R&B pop female artists sings the anthem and I think she was hit with the Billie Holliday Holy Ghost.

Now the butchering of the anthem is no longer a political measuring stick but now it’s a punchline to a joke.

So one is persecuted for kneeing while the anthem is being sung.

Another is made to be a laughing stock for butchering it in song.

Now tell me the difference between the two?

As a military veteran I don’t want to hear anything about patriotism to a flag or the country I will just say that young boys and girls care little about patriotism. I remember all of us would run as fast as we could to get indoors before the flag was being raised or lowered because no one even old salty dogs wanted to stand at attention until the patriotic daily act was completed.

Why was kneeling a problem but awful singing is just a funny joke?

I think Fergie should be outcast in the exact same was as the NFL dude was outcast.

Xpensive Hobutt said...

I did not watch it. I have better things to do with my time. My weekend beats your year.

DDonna Tarttty said...

Just another orchestrated event to denigrate the USA and turn important symbols into jokes and/or polarizing politicized media events.

just sayin' said...

There's something wrong with her -- she's a child Disney actress, so she may have horrible memories. So insecure -- she can sing well and a natural rendition of the anthem would have gone great.

Few Views said...

True story: while I played the clip, my cat was sure she was hearing a rival...

Smile Lovely said...

She was awful.
