Watch his rendition below, where his candid reaction also awaits…

Taking to Twitter shortly after, the 35-year-old his 3 million followers:

To be fair, it wasn’t that bad — or bad at all, for that matter. A bit throaty, a bit gravelly if anything.

That said, we’re more offended by the tacky Facebook plug at the end. Like, really?!

    Meh. It wasn’t bad, I’ve certainly seen worst! He won’t be penalized, people are much harsher on the women!

  4. Realest May 4, 2014

    He still songs better than ANY male artists who’s come out in the past decade. Of w**** saying “who” it shows JUST EXACTLY how much you DONT know about music and shouldn’t be commenting like you do know… Idiots… Smh

  5. cocobutta May 4, 2014

    What’s he talking about. Kept more simplistic and bit fast in places but wasn’t that bad.

    • IStanForYourFav May 4, 2014

      Agreed. Like I was expecting strain and off key. Not an ounce of that.

  6. Kelly Kelly May 4, 2014

    At least he did it live and not lip synced it like that w**** slutyonce.

    Rihanna would never do that. Her performance would be iconic

    • truth May 4, 2014

      Bish u TRYNA get dragd with that Rhislut comment. U kno that bish caint sing…u h**

    • Realest May 4, 2014

      Rihanna is VOCALLY INCAPABLE of singing the national anthem which is why almost a decade into her career she hasn’t tried. There is a reason she only makes workout music, the last vocally challenging song she ever sang was mariah Carey’s “hero” and we all saw how bad that was… She sucks- especially in comparison to a SINGER (and her biggest influence) beyonce !!!

      • Kasha May 4, 2014

        Rihanna actually has a national anthem on youtube and it sounds cute…. Try again…..

      • Benji May 4, 2014

        That s*** was a hot mess! Nothing cute about her goat vocals.

  7. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) May 4, 2014

    Huh….Samantha, fix the Christina post…I swear this site forever has issues…

  8. IStanForYourFav May 4, 2014

    Well at least he admitted it. He still looks amazing after all of these years. I remember being a little girl and wondering why he made me tingle. Now I know lol.

  9. Mark111 May 4, 2014

    It wasn’t bad and no one cares for it being sung at a boxing match. Chris Brown was horrible tho.

  10. LittleJohnny May 4, 2014

    Not bad at all. He only messed up on his last run and the very end, but the average listener wouldn’t have caught that. Good Job Tyrese!!

  11. ChrisTUNA AguiHAHA May 4, 2014

    OMG! I always love this man, what a real man, R&B rules. I admit that performance was not his best

    I liked it I was expecting so much worse. He act like we were expecting boyz to men vocals or sum s*** :/

  13. eric May 4, 2014

    As was written above, he should be more embarrassed about using the moment to gain Facebook followers. All he wanted was to be seen. His behavior was selfish and egotistical.

  14. metzo May 4, 2014

    It wasn’t that bad.
