It’s kind of cringey, kind of amazing.
Ciara’s rendition of The National Anthem isn’t horrible, but it wasn’t great either.
Ciara’s latest record Jackie is one of our favorite albums in 2015 thus far, but her vocal performance of The National Anthem at Major League Baseball’s All Star Game on Tuesday (July 14) was anything but spectacular. We want to fully blame the backup singers for their pitchy contribution, but let’s be real: singing one of the most famous songs in the world acapella style would jolt anyone’s nerves. We see you, Christina Aguilera.
This leads us to ask…
Billboard says she nailed it, so… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
