Nelly Furtado performed a very different slowed down version of our national anthem at the NBA All-Star game in Toronto and people were not happy with it.
It’s not the first time someone has tried to do something different with the anthem. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t… and Nelly is an amazing singer with great talent. Although she was a bit off key at times… I definitely don’t think she should have gotten this amount of hate. Like, some tweets are just down right mean.
Is Nelly Furtado having a breakdown?— Michael Wilbon (@RealMikeWilbon) February 15, 2016
That's about the worst performance of the Canadian Anthem I've ever heard...
Listening to Nelly Furtado sing the national anthem was like having hemorrhoids in your ears and a cat using them as a scratching post.— Danko Jones (@dankojones) February 15, 2016
Nelly Furtado had 10 years to warm up her vocals...she has no excuse for that performance 😂— Kristina (@kristinamariano) February 15, 2016
She did have a few supporters but seeing a supportive tweet was a rarity.
All you can do now is watch, listen and see for yourself….
