Jamie Foxx says that a faulty earpiece is to blame for his subpar performance of the "Star Spangled Banner" prior to the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight in Las Vegas last weekend. On The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Foxx claims the sound set up was poorly done.

"Now some people were a little upset at how it went down," he began.

"My inner ears were out and I'm singing with an organ and I can't hear what the organ is doing with the big crowd. So some of it was a little off. In the arena it killed. The telecast was a little off, but we still love America."

Foxx added that those who so vocally criticized his rendition of the National Anthem ought to "calm down."
