Fergie the needs of the auto-tune’ after the national anthem debacle, Wendy Williams says

Wendy Williams said Fergie should “auto-tune” after the national anthem debacle.


Wendy Williams just don’t think that Fergie can sing.

Williams beat Fergie after the 47-year-old singer’s rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” fell flat with viewers during the night of Sunday to Monday, the NBA All-Star game. Although they said that Fergie was the “best,” Williams said of the singer, “auto-tune.”

“There are only a few people who can sing raw… and Fergie is not one,” Williams said during her show. “She needs auto-tune. Jen Lopez needs of auto-tune. Janet [Jackson] the needs of auto-tune. Beyoncé needs of auto-tune.”

Fergie said she was sorry for the panned performance.

“I’ve always been honored and proud to perform the national anthem and the last night I wanted to try something special for the NBA. I am a risk-taker artistically, but it is clear that this view does not strike the intended tone. I love this country and honestly have done my best,” the Black Eyed Peas singer told TMZ.

Williams said that she felt that Fergie “didn’t have to apologize” and the impact on the performance of simmer down by next week.


Williams is not the only mocking Fergie for the sweet view. Roseanne Barr, who sang the national anthem at a 1990 Padres game, chimed in on the debacle on Twitter Monday, saying, “Who saw Fergie’s national anthem performance at the NBA All Star Game? I think mine was better lowkey.”

Other people, including A-list celebrities and basketball players were caught laughing on Sunday during the singer’s performance. On the social media, Fergie confronted with an avalanche of criticism.

Mariah Carey, however, had better things to say Fergie, including advice to the middle of the play.

“Darling, no one should listen to that,” Carey told TMZ while waving her hand back and forth while walking out of a Los Angeles restaurant.
