After Fergie flopped while singing the national anthem on Sunday, former Alabama cornerback Marlon Humphrey is convinced he can pull it off.
Fergie’s curious effort before the NBA All-Star Game in Los Angeles left the internet scratching its collective head. The singer even apologized for her showing after she became the butt of jokes for many throughout the country.
Hey, in showbiz, not all buzz is good buzz. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
On Monday night, Humphrey felt compelled to chime in about the popular topic. The current Baltimore Ravens player used Twitter to suggest that he’s “convinced” he can do the national anthem justice.
He might be right. After Sunday night, the bar is rather low. In case you need a refresher, here’s Fergie’s infamous attempt:
For now, Humphrey should concentrate on sticking to his day job. The Ravens took him 16th overall in the 2017 NFL Draft. He had 34 tackles and 2 interceptions as a rookie last season.
But perhaps Humphrey will have the chance to show off his vocal chords at some point. Never say never, right?
Sorry, Fergie, but you made the whole singing-the-national-anthem thing seem far easier than it should be.
