Fergie Who? Milwaukee Bucks Had Flavor Flav Perform Memorable National Anthem
Every NBA All-Star Weekend brings a spectacle of skills, dunks, and dazzling displays of athleticism. But in 2018, something unexpected happened that had the basketball world buzzing for a different reason. Fergie, the Grammy-winning artist known for her sultry vocals and hits like “Fergalicious,” took center stage to perform the national anthem, and let’s just say it was a moment we won’t soon forget.
Fergie’s rendition of the “Star-Spangled Banner” during the NBA All-Star Game was nothing short of unique and had fans both baffled and amused. Even the players couldn’t help it and reactions spanned from a mix of surprise, suppressed laughter, to trying to maintain their game faces.
Everybody likely assumed that such hilarious moment was a one time thing, but they forgot about the Milwaukee Bucks. Someone had the glorious idea of asking Flavor Flav to perform the pre-game anthem, and Flav didn’t disappoint one bit. Definitely my favorite moment of this young season.
“The anthem was a long time bucket list item … that was fun! I can’t live my life worried about what people might say about me,” Flavor wrote on X. “I won’t let that stop me from trying new things and doing things I wanna do. Some people might not like that. But a sure failure is if you stop trying.”
