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.

NFL: We need this to be a great halftime show, we brought you Bebe Rexha.
Black: Yes very well, put it in the corner of the main lobby so no one can see it. pic.twitter.com/kiiQAL3GwJ

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.

Sure, Rexha’s show wasn’t universally loved by those watching across the country.
But hey, at least they were able to see it easily.
Bebe Rexha was getting rowdy here in Detroit because she wasn’t visible from the crowd while she was performing. I burst out laughing. pic.twitter.com/kKKlmzYhwR
