The NBA All-Star Weekend festivities may be over but the country is still talking about Nelly Furtado’s version of the National anthem.
Furtado came out with flautist Tony Duncan before the All-Star game to perform an unusual version of “O Canada.”
Fans on social media slammed the performance, asking “what country’s anthem was it?”
Just listened to that national anthem Nelly Furtado sang last night. Very nice but what country’s anthem was it?

Nelly Furtado was great but when is someone singing the Canadian National Anthem? #NBAAllStarTO

Others called it the worst play of the game.
On behalf of Canadians everywhere, we’d like to nominate Nelly Furtado’s version of our great anthem as the worst play of day @TSN_Sports

Though some people praised the signer, the majority of reviews weren’t positive.
I love Nelly Furtado!! #NBAAllStarGame

I missed Nelly Furtado singing the national anthem, but 广州蒲友’s play-by-play was more entertaining by the sounds of it haha #NBAAllStarTO

Although Ne-Yo did great. Nelly Furtado was not.

Nelly Furtado should have her Canadian citizenship revoked for her rendition of the Canadian anthem #NBAAllStarTO
