Game 3 of the NBA Playoffs kicked off with a patriotic performance from Tamar Braxton. The R&B diva put her powerful pipes on display while singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” before the Atlanta Hawks took on the Indiana Pacers. She had Philips Arena on its feet, but received mixed reviews on social media.

“Daaaaamn, #SheDIDThat!! SLAYED,” wrote one fan, while others were less complimentary. “My god Tamar Braxton was awful in the national anthem,” commented another.

Tamar is currently opening for R. Kelly and will kick off her own “Love and War” tour on May 16 in Miami.

Tamar Braxton was back in the Bravo Clubhouse during her visit to “Watch What Happens Live” on Tuesday. Looking pretty in pink, the “Love and War” singer chatted with Andy Cohen about her shutout at the Grammys (She was nominated for three awards) and issued a hilarious 20-second response to her critics, who made fun of her Soul Train Awards outfit.

“Be mad ’cause SHE won three awards that night,” said Tamar, who will tour throughout March.

She also addressed her sister Towanda’s rumored relationship with “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kordell Jackson and her rocky relationship with her sisters.

“I love my sisters to death and I’ve apologized 150,000 times. I can’t do anymore than that,” said Tamar. “I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry. Let’s be friends.”

After the show, she stuck around to witness Andy Cohen officiate the wedding of two men. Watch the emotional moment below.
