Jamie Foxx performed the National Anthem on Saturday night for the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight, and received some very mixed reviews because of the song’s arrangement, as well as his failure to keep up with the organ.
Appearing on The Ellen Show today, Jamie discussed the flop, explaining that his in-ear monitors had fallen out just before he began, leaving him unable to hear the organ. However, this apparently was only an issue for people watching at home, as Jamie says that “in the arena, it killed.”
Check out the full clip from Ellen below, as well as the performance for reference. Did you think he did a good job?
