Blanco Brown performed the national anthem this afternoon to kick off the NASCAR Cup Series Fold of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
And it was… let’s just say interesting.
For those not familiar, Blanco Brown went viral in 2019 for his TikTok dance number, “The Git Up,” and then followed it up with another #1 as a guest on Parmalee’s hit single “Just the Way.”
I think it’s safe to say that this national anthem performance might garner some viral attention… for all the wrong reasons.
And here’s the thing… it started off pretty good. In fact, most of it was good.
But that last note… AWFUL.
I mean, I don’t even know what that was.
Listen for yourself:
It was so bad, Twitter compared it to Rosanne Barr’s infamous performance at the San Diego Padre game back in 1990.
The comments were… brutal:
What happen. It was great until it got to the ending. Is it a cry for help. Blink 2 times if you need help

DREADFUL !! That song is mean to be performed with respect, it’s not for showboating.

That has to be in the top three of the worst anthem performances I’ve ever seen. Even Roseanne Barr did it better

Sounded like he got kicked in the nuts for the final note. 🤣
