Watch: Cam Newton, Greg Olsen belt it out during karaoke jam

Cam Newton and Greg Olsen took the stage recently for a karaoke jam and proved beyond a doubt that as far as they are concerned, singing ought to be left to the professionals.

The Carolina Panthers teammates took the stage separately, with Newton appearing to perform Usher’s “Let it Burn” and Olsen busting out on a rap from Eminem’s “8 Mile,” that according to CBS Sports.

There is not choice other than to trust them on those observations, because, well, both performances are not that great. To wit:

On the field, the Panthers are in full free-fall mode, having dropped five straight after opening the season as an NFC frontrunner courtesy of a 6-2 start. Olsen currently is relegated to IR and Newton appears to be suffering from a shoulder injury. 

While the Panthers’ prospects of reaching the playoffs are slim to none, at least two of the team’s stars are having some semblance of fun off the gridiron on the karaoke stage. The same cannot be said for those poor souls who had to witness their respective performances.
