Keri Hilson performed our National Anthem at the Atlanta Hawks-Los Angeles Lakers game Wednesday and in our opinion, really didn't do the thing justice.
The right lyrics might have helped.
Hilson belted out “The Star Spangled Banner” in front of thousands of Hawks fans, which included musical peers and fellow Atlanta residents T.I., Jeezy, The-Dream and Monica, who were all on hand inside Philips Arena to witness the affair.
Fortunately, the home team delivered a convincing win, because the night didn't exactly start out strong as Keri Hilson forgot the words to the iconic song.
The murmurs from the crowd are hilarious ...
Hilson, who was linked to Chris Brown lately, at least hung tough through the mishap and finished the song. She also didn't beat Rihanna at any point.
