Before the New Orleans Saints took on the Los Angeles Rams to see who would be named the NFC Champions and head to the Super Bowl, the beloved crooner took the field to deliver the national anthem. Afterwards, he decided to leave the field in perhaps the most epic way possible -- by giving attendees a mic-drop for the ages!
Buffett’s rendition and audacious move elicited waves of excitement from fans on Twitter. “After all the years of hearing people perfectly sing the national anthem, I’m ready for more performances like Jimmy Buffett. bring in Danny DeVito for the super bowl. America is ready,” Foster the People tweeted.
“Jimmy Buffet officially in the Fergie category of national anthems,” the user wrote. This is reference to the Black Eyed Peas alum’s infamous national anthem performance a the 2018 NBA All-Star game last February.
"I've always been honored and proud to perform the National Anthem and last night I wanted to try something special for the NBA," Fergie said in a statement to ET. "I’m a risk taker artistically, but clearly this rendition didn’t strike the intended tone."
"I love this country and honestly tried my best," she added.
