Jamie Foxx Defends National Anthem Performance
Last Saturday, Floyd Mayweather defeated Manny Pacquiao in a championship boxing match, but before the event started, Jamie Foxx sang his rendition of the National Anthem.
The performance was quite interesting to say the least, grabbing a lot of attention on social media.
What’s Jamie Fox singing? It sounds familiar but I can’t place it.

Jamie Foxx killed the national anthem. And by killed it I mean it was like road kill. #PacWins

Foxx appeared on “Ellen” Monday and explained to the talk show host what really went down during his performance.
“But what did happen in the ring, my ears came out. My inner ears. My inner ears came out, and I’m singing with an organ so I can’t hear what the organ is doing with the big crowd. So some of it was a little off, but I think in the arena, it killed. The telecast was a little off. But ya know, we still love America.”
Don’t worry. We still love you, Jamie.
