Jamie Foxx gives a weird rendition of national anthem before Mayweather-Paquiao fight


Jamie Foxx singing at mayweather-Paquiao fight in Las VegasJamie Foxx gave a questionable performance at the Mayweather – Paquiao fight in las Vegas on May 2nd. He sang a remixed weird rendition of the national anthem which the majority of those that witnessed it said was horrible. It was full of off key moments and weird ad-libs. This seems to be bad timing considering Jamie’s new album is set to soon be released and this was not a good promotional look as a prelude to his upcoming music release. Twitter and Facebook are buzzing with harsh comments and reviews of his performance.
