Last night Ashanti performed the US national anthem -‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ – at the NBA Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers vs. Boston Celtics, which was held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Say what you want about her, but there’s no denying that she nailed this one.
What do you think of the performance?
I the worlds of Flaw WOOOOOOOOOOOOOW. I really did not think that she could sing!!!
by the way…………..
I AM FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am sorry but that was not that good. It was just okay and she definitely did not nail that performance.
^^^^whatever she did really good I was def impressed
I agree w/ the first post! She gave me chills. She’s def out to prove the haters wrong! Get ’em Ashanti!
that was not all that good people, but she tried and i commened her for that!
I’m not a fan of Ashanti but even I can give credit where credit is due. She did great. I think all the animosity that lays with calling Ashanti a bad singer has to do with the Bey stans. IMO Ashanti is more beautiful than Beyonce but she can’t sing like Beyonce (which is true). But to accuse her of not being able to hold a note is just crazy fans being biased towards certain artists.
Ok, the performance was good. Not amazing..
I like Ashanti, and my ‘Declaration’ album jus came through the post the other day lol. She is an amazing songwriter and has banging songs but this performance was pitchy at parts and not ashanti performing at her best!
Ashanti is on of those growing artists that I love to watch and see grow…
She’s getting there, she really is.. But not yet!
^^I agree with you also^^
All I’ve heard is people(haters in particular) say the girl can’t sing. Ashanti is proving the haters wrong and she can sing.
She did really really good.
Ok, i don’t really like Ashanti, but fair enought that was good, didn’t really know she could sing like that. I’ve seen better but i’m impressed
Great Performance!! U know I really admire her because of the fact dat she is stepping her game up and fighting for dat spot in the game which IMO I think she already have claimed. You know for people not to give her a chance is krazy because girl got mad talent. BTW, how many artist dat you know dat sings this ACAPELLA. Most artist uses the music or sing with the band. GOOD GOOD Job Princess!
She just DOES NOT have a good voice. I had goosebumps alright, goosebumps of embarrassment. She gets loud and it gets ugly.
stop all this ashanti vs Bey crap! i agree that ok she can’t saaaaang like bey but the girl can sing!! and IMO she’s waaaaaaay more down to earth and prettier than Bey..and plus she has good taste in men..bey lookin for that money lol ok my bad that was wrong let me stop lol..but if i had to choose i’d def kick it wit ashanti over bey any day! and this performance was dope! she looked good and sung good!
Ashanti did a good job and I’ve come to accept that her HATERS will never give her credit! I’m not saying that went all Whitney or MJB with it but she did a good job and we all know there have some people that have torn this song to shreds!
I didn’t like her performance but she looked cute..
eh…. she was plain and boring and unoriginal
she was struggling…..
I’M NOT A FAN OF HERS
BUT I THINK SHE DID AN AMAZING JOB :]
I STILL WONDER WHY PEOPLE HATE???
JUST GROW ON & LIVE WITH IT HATING IS NOT COOL SOMETIMES IT IS BUT WHATEVER SHE WAS GOOD
I did not like that performance. She was trying to hard to hit the high notes and her high notes were a bit loud but thats just what I think. Keep trying Ashanti
Lol Beyonce haters are just plain tired. No one here compared Beyonce to Ashanti and to say that Ashanti is prettier than Beyonce is just laughable. To the one clown that said that Beyonce is after Jay-Z’s money you dont make it to the Forbes top 5 most powerful celebrities by being a gold digger, Beyonce has her own. Does Ashanti feauture anywhere on this list; doubt it. By the way The Declaration was crap no wonder why she only sold less than 90 000 copies in one week shame. Get yourselves a better idol to have Ashanti as an idol is just plain embarassing.
I am an Ashanti fan, but that was not her best peformance. She can sing way better than that. She has nothing to prove, when she hit the scene, she was hot, had it on lock. Her debut album spoke volumes. Why must there always be a comparison made. Both ladies are talented in their own ways. I’m also a Beyonce fan, she’s a better performer, but Ashanti’s a better actress. They are both beautiful. Stop hating, Ashanti has Nelly and Bey has Jay and all the haters have in this forum . . . GET OVER IT already . . . LMAO just SAD
The fact is Ashanti has come some way from her debut days. People used to flat out say SHE CANT SING now shes a little better. Really I think this is the best i’ve heard her sing, but it isn;’t great, c’mon now LOL. Hate to bring Bey in this but ya’ll did first, fact is Beyonce has a nice voice than Ashanti, Ashanti’s voice isn;t really pleasant to listen to, Beyonce’s is plus sh cn sing better overall. But Nelly beats
Jay ANYDAY! But Beyonce aint no goldigger she got her own.
i love her but that was not her best she could of den way betta and i think she has grown alot but dis was just not on point and dat aint no hateing it the truth and this may sound out of the way but if sam could say this was gud den damn he/she needs to stop hatin on rihanna
Ashanti is prettier than Beyonce so is Rhianna. U gotta problem with my saying that? Well let me say it again that way there is no doubts about what I said. ASHANTI IS MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN BEYONCE! When you read this, try cackling it’ll help guide your way out of Beyonce’s cellulite a**. Like right now I’m LMAO instead of laughing which is so tired. And what I say still stands the Bey stan are specifically the ones calling Ashanti a bad singer PERIOD. And to prove me right YET AGAIN yall show up all of sudden when yall don’t even care for Ashanti. And no one here hates on Beyonce otherwise we would have use the same pathetic tired a** tactics like u sickos “She can’t sang”. Ashanti struggling? Bull she did an exceptional job you all afraid to admit it because that would mean that Ashanti is defitely out to prove the haters wrong. Mainly the the Bey stans.
i think the first half she was having some pitch problems but the second half sounded great especially those high notes.
ASHNTI SHOULD STOP TRYING TO SING AND STOP TRYING TO ACT AND STOP WRITING HORRIBLE SONGS. SHE SHOULD JUST SPEND NELLY’S MONEY AND FALL BACK. SHE’S WACK. THE PERFORMANCE WAS BAD. SHE SOUNDS BAD. F*** THE BEYONCE COMPARISONS. EVEN IF ASHANTI WAS THE ONLY FEMALE RNB CHICK OUT SHE WOULD STILL BE THE WACKEST. SHE SEEMS SO UNORIGINAL AND SHE SPEAKS LIKE AN AIR HEAD. EVERYTHING IS “BANANAS” AND HER LAUGH ANNOYS MANY. I BELIEVE EVERYONE IS GOOD AT SOMETHING DON’T GET ME WRONG. BUT ENTERTAINMENT ISN’T HER STRONG POINT. MAYBE SHE’S A GOOD COOK OR SOMETHING.
