Mixed reactions to Nelly Furtado’s ‘O Canada’ rendition at NBA all-star game

The singer-songwriter and B.C. native sang the Canadian national anthem following R&B artist Ne-Yo’s performance of ‘The Star-Spangled Banner.’

Social media has been abuzz with all things NBA all-star game this weekend, and fans were quick to react to Sunday’s pre-game national anthems.

Nelly Furtado took to the court and performed a rendition of “O Canada” featuring a live accompaniment by Indigenous North American flutist Tony Duncan.

The “Promiscuous Girl” singer brought down the tempo and delivered a mellow-sounding melody line that didn’t quite hit the high notes.

But Furtado’s version of the national anthem definitely struck a chord with fans. What did you think?
