Fergie Used The Wrong Word During The National Anthem Tonight

Fergie sings the national anthem.

At this point, you've probably seen Fergie's ridiculous rendition of the national anthem at the NBA's All-Star Game. If you haven't, scroll down. (Scroll down anyway, actually.)

You might not have noticed that the pop star used the wrong word during one of the verses. It was pretty embarrassing (along with the rest of her rendition).

The fifth and sixth verses are supposed to go as follows:

And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.

Fergie, though, decided to switch it up. She went with:

And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave prooooo through the night that our flag was still there.

The full version of Fergie's rendition can be seen below. Check it out:

Yikes. Maybe go with someone else next time, NBA.

Tonight's game is on TNT. It's Team LeBron vs. Team Steph.
