Bebe Rexha hit her weirdly blocked platform to sing a mix of her classics during her halftime show at the NFL’s traditional Thanksgiving Day game in Detroit, which left the fans feeling a little off following the performance.
Rexha took the stage, which, judging by a fan-shared video from the game, happened in a tiny corner of the stadium, charging through several of her songs, The performance took place after the Detroit Lions and the Buffalo Bills retreated to their locker rooms for the halftime break.
The audience booed the artist loudly when the singer Rexha ceased singing and began a dance-based breakdown in the midst of the song . However, it seems that the reason they didn’t like her performance was not because they didn’t like the performance itself, but because they were unable to truly watch her performance.
Next, Rexha moved on to what has become her defining song, 2017’s “Meant to Be,” a duet with Florida Georgia Line, and then finished with current smash “I’m Good” (Blue), another record with Guetta that extensively borrows samples from Eiffel 65’s 1998 classic “Blue (Da Ba Dee).
Following the conclusion of Rexha’s performance, the crowd at Ford Field once more erupted in booing, which looked to be directed at the singer, who is 33 years old.
A supporter had questioned Rexha earlier on Thursday through Twitter if she was anxious about the performance, and she had answered “Yesssssss”.
Even though not everyone in Michigan enjoyed her halftime act, “I’m Good (Blue)” shot to the top of the charts almost as soon as it was released in August, making it one of the greatest singles of Rexha’s career thus far. In addition to receiving a nomination for the Grammy Award for Best Dance/Electronic Recording, the song also topped the charts in the United Kingdom and Australia, and it reached its highest position in the United States at No. 7; this makes it Rexha’s highest-charting song since “I’m a Mess” reached No. 35 in 2018.
