Normani Gets Roasted For Off-Key Pregame Concert Full Of Vocal Mishaps
You may have been preoccupied with the Chaka Khan national anthem singing drama after the NBA All-Stars game, but there was an even bigger singing faux-pas of the night. Megan Thee Stallion and Normani were tapped for the AT&T Pregame Concert but Normani’s vocals left… a lot to be desired when the time came for the Dancing With The Stars alum to take the stage. Clearly the former Fifth Harmony singer was off her game and the sound engineer for the show wasn’t doing her any favors, either.
During videos that popped up online, Normani appeared to forget the backing vocals to “Motivation,” got winded during the performance, and also sung off-key. It’s pretty clear that something was wrong with her in-ear monitors, but her voice was pitchy — at best — when she did try to sing despite the technical issues. Then, instead of trying to get the issues fixed between tracks, Normani tried to power through the rest of the set. Her dance moves may have been sick, but they couldn’t distract us from the lacking sound.
To make matters more suspicious though, fan videos from the event have *very* different vocals.
So I see fan videos of Normani performing at the NBA thing and she sounds great. But then recorded version sounds a mess….. Maybe she is being sabotaged https://t.co/dxW7EIkLuv

Normani’s sung live on much bigger stages than the AT&T pregame, so this was nothing but a fluke. But why was everyone talking about the ousted Masked Singer when this was going on.
And for the record, Normani is not the first artist whose vocals have suffered because of a tech malfunction. In fact, it’s kind of a rite of passage for pop stars. Everyone from Adele to Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, and Beyoncé Knowles have had this kind of embarrassing performance due to a technical difficulty.
