Jamie Foxx has taken time to respond to the public about his underwhelming performance of the National Anthem before the Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao fight over the weekend. We all know Jamie Foxx can sing, and when Black people sing the anthem we all expect a little rifting and running, but we all needed answers about what went down in the ring. According to Foxx, in the arena he killed it, he says it was the telecast that was off. He also said his inner ears (ear pieces singers use to hear the music and themselves during performances) fell out and he was unable to hear the organ playing due to the loud crowd.

“But what did happen in the ring, my ears came out. My inner ears. My inner ears came out, and I’m singing with an organ so I can’t hear what the organ is doing with the big crowd. So some of it was a little off, but I think in the arena, it killed.”

Hmmmmm we aren’t sure it killed in the arena either but we know Jamie is talented and can sing so we all forgive him.
