Although she's no longer with Josh Duhamel, Fergie's ex came to her defense over the backlash when visiting Ellen on Friday (Feb. 23).

In case you missed it, earlier this week, pop star Fergie of Black Eyed Peas fame gave a, uh, questionable rendition of the national anthem at the NBA All-Star game. "I think she would probably admit that it was not her best work, but the girl is insane talented". But the girl is insane talented, she really is. I think it's incredible that her ex-husband is so supportive no matter what. "It's hard to see somebody you care about get beat up like that". "But that's the business - you're in this business, and you put yourself out there; sometimes you win, and sometimes you don't".

'Trust me, she is fine.

The former couple have a 4-year-old son, Axl, together and he's taking up hobbies that interest both his parents.

By now, you might know that Fergie's unusual rendition of the National Anthem didn't go over to well. The singer, who said she tried to do something special for the National Basketball Association, dramatically slowed down the song and added a jazzy tone to it. Nearly instantly, Fergie became a viral meme, with other videos of celebrity and athlete reactions also gaining speed on the internet.

But as one Twitter user noted, the sadness turned again to smiles once they rewatched what's being pegged as the #GIFoftheGames. When the USA women's ice hockey team bested Canada in a shootout on Thursday in South Korea, it did a lot of things.

Although Fergie herself has already responded to the criticism, and actually apologized for her rendition, the jokes haven't really let up.

"It's going really well", Duhamel said of co-parenting with Fergie in an interview with E!

Fergie also spoke out about her performance, saying, "I love this country and honestly tried my best". "We are and will always be united in our support of each other and our family".

Kimmel then shared a clip from Fergie's performance with his viewers, in which he could be seen in the NBA All-Star Game crowd, smiling as he appeared to struggle holding back his laughter.
