Jamie Foxx's Version of National Anthem At Mayweather/Pacquiao Fight

There are some things you miss when you choose to watch a popular boxing match featuring the leading man of the money team via social media. One of those would be a new spin on the national anthem. 

Before the 30 minute fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao began, Jamie Foxx sang the national anthem. After the fight many of us were on social media deciding whether or not Floyd deserved to win. He did, but Manny also saw himself as a winner before he realized the judges didn't. Actually Manny may still think of himself as a winner despite the results, which shows lots of confidence. They were both winners because they walked away with hundreds of millions of dollars to add to their already wealthy lifestyles. 

While they were celebrating Jamie Foxx was also celebrating his moment of singing the national anthem. His version wasn't what we were used to seeing. He put a magic touch that only he could and made the song very soulful. Obviously knowing what his vocal skills are cable of, Jamie did not try to hit any real high notes. He kept it smooth. 

Not everyone liked Jamie's version of the national anthem. Some people, including Lil Mo, responded negatively after he was finished. Since joining reality television, Lil Mo has become a queen of throwing shade at any and everyone she feels deserves it. 
Did you agree with the negative responses to his version or do you think Jamie Foxx did good?
