Why would NFL fans at Ford Field have trouble watching Rexha’s halftime antics on Thanksgiving during Lions vs.

The NFL’s Thanksgiving halftime shows always come under intense scrutiny, and Bebe Rexha at the Lions vs. Bills game was no different.

Rexha — the pop singer best known for her 2013 hit song “The Monster” — put together a fun halftime show for her performance in Detroit.

However, fans at Ford Field wouldn’t know much about it. They weren’t really able to see it.

For some reason, the stage Rexha was performing on was tucked away in the corner of the stadium. That made it impossible for fans to see it without looking at the Jumbotron.

This confused the fans, who ended up booing Rexha’s performance as a result.

It’s understandable that fans felt this way given that the NFL sold them a bill of goods that included an amazing halftime show. But again, the league had some trouble connecting sports and entertainment in a harmonious way.

This wasn’t the only odd component of Rexha’s short performance. She opens while standing on stage as the camera pans around her.

This went on for some time, and viewers across the country raved about the stunning opening.

Then, the camera worked equally well, and NFL fans enjoyed Rexha’s show from the comfort of their couches. This resulted in many comments from savvy social media users that ranged from complimenting the pop star’s performance to questions about it.
