Poor Keri Hilson slaughtered the National Anthem during halftime of tonight's Lakers vs. Hawks game. Hilson, who has written Grammy winning hits for other singers, showed her inexperience by forgetting the words to one of the most popular anthems in America.
It's strange that Keri was chosen to sing the national anthem when R&B Diva Monica was sitting right there at courtside and would have killed the national anthem had she been asked to perform it.
Other celebs seen wincing at courtside as Hilson struck out at half court were rapper T.I., his artist Young Dro and basketball legend Dr. J.
Rapper T.I. looked happy
