Nelly Furtado Received A Lot Of Mixed Reviews For Her Rendition Of The National Anthem

Perhaps the biggest foul of the record-breaking NBA All-Star Game came before tipoff.

At least that’s what critics are saying about singer Nelly Furtado’s performance of her national anthem at the game in Toronto on Sunday night.

Seconds after American R&B singer Ne-Yo performed a soulful, well-received rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” Canadian Furtado stepped onto center court to sing “O Canada.”

That’s when tweets about the the “I’m Like a Bird” singer started flying.

At times, Furtado seemed to be out of sync with Native American flute player Tony Duncan, who accompanied her center court.

But some adored Furtado’s performance of “O Canada.”

And Duncan got his share of love, too.

Furtado herself posted several tweets expressing excitement over the NBA All-Star weekend. But after her national anthem, she has largely stayed mum.

For those more interested in the actual game, the Western Conference All-Stars beat their Eastern Conference counterparts 196-173.
