Can Usher please sing the national anthem at every major event moving forward? His performance of the ‘Star Spangled Banner’ — a slowed down version — at the Game 4 of the NBA Finals on June 11 was amazing! Fans are freaking out on social media, and so are we.
Besides LeBron James‘ penis reveal at Game 4 of the NBA Finals on June 11, Usher‘s performance of the “Star Spangled Banner” was the highlight of the night! Obviously, the national anthem begins all American sporting events, but this time, no one except Usher seemed more appropriate for the occasion — he is part owner of the Cavaliers, after all. And we’re so thankful he accepted the honor. Usher absolutely slayed the national anthem.
When singing the “Star Spangled Banner,” ahead of Game 4, Usher slowed the song down in order to give a sultry performance. Watch the video above!
And speaking of slowing things down, ABC accidentally showed LeBron James‘ penis on live TV, as he adjusted his shorts on camera before the game. A slowed down version of the video, which has gone viral, is a must-see! But so is Usher’s performance. All in all, Game 4 was a very eventful night. And fans agree — see what they’re tweeting below:

Um, Usher???? This is the National Anthem. Not the National “Hey Girl What’s Your Name Let Me Talk To You For A Minute” ANTHEM.

Usher just crushed it with a Marvin Gaye-esque performance of the national anthem.
