In defense of Fergie's National Anthem: What if her performance was actually good?
"When offered anything that dares to be different, social media actively worked to uphold orthodoxy," Jesse David Fox says in defending Fergie. "Experimentation in general is a good thing, and it can be an exceptional thing when it happens in such a public forum. Fergie’s performance was not a failure of conception or execution, but expectation. Because even if her rendition wasn’t perfect, the reaction to it definitely will dissuade the next artist with a strange idea to try it on national television."
