Who is Conan Gray? Singer SLAMMED for delivering 'worst national anthem performance ever'
Internet star Conan Gray kicked off Monday's Home Run Derby on Monday, July 18, by singing the American national anthem, leaving fans unimpressed. The singer started his career on YouTube and his first album went gold in 2020. When he sang his rendition of the national anthem to mark the beginning of the event, unimpressed fans did not hold back on their comments on social media. The 23-year-old singer's performance was called the "worst ever" at the Major League game at Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles.
The singer’s rendition was also likened to Fergie’s performance at the 2018 All-Star Game and actress Roseanne Barr's flop effort at a 1990 San Diego Padres baseball game.
Viewers took to Twitter to critique the musician's performance, making him a trend on social media. One user said, "It was so bad, I turned off my tv."
Some viewers called Gray "tone deaf", while others said that there was "no worse national anthem" than the one they had just heard. This was a thought that was echoed by a number of Home Run Derby viewers.

Gray is reportedly famous for hits like 'Idle Town', 'Crush Culture' and 'Maniac'. The singer was born in Lemon Grove, California, to an Irish father and Japanese mother. He grew up in Georgetown, Texas, before moving to Los Angeles, California, in 2017.
Gray began making videos when he was just nine. At the age of 14, Gray launched his self-titled YouTube channel in 2013. Currently, he has 4.71 million subscribers on his channel and three weeks ago, he released his single 'Disaster''s official music video on the platform.

Is Gray dating someone?
It’s not known whether Gray is in a relationship with someone and what his sexual orientation is or if he’s a bisexual since he’s shown both men and women as love interests in his music videos. However, in an interview, he reportedly said, “You will probably be surprised to learn that I've never actually dated anyone. It's embarrassing! Dating makes me nervous...I've been heartbroken, obviously. I've been in love with people, but they haven't loved me back.”
Also, Gray had once tweeted, “Y’all are so annoying all y’all ever wanna do is place a label on me just let me f**kin exist what the f**k. if labels on sexuality and gender and beliefs and all that great stuff are helpful for u, i’m all for it. u do u. but the second u start trying to shove everyone else into a neat little easy to understand box, i get mad. stop! please! f****** stop!” And when a fan said, “The only label i wanna place on u is cutie,” he replied, “This is gentle and sweet but i am angery so i don’t know how to accept compliments right now.”
