AceShowbiz - Jason Derulo was trying his best to deliver the best performance during halftime show at the Minnesota Vikings and the Detroit Lions Thanksgiving game on November 23. Unfortunately for him, viewers at home didn't think that his performance was good at all. Rather, they thought that it was terrible.
Accompanied by DJ Jae Murphy, Jason began his performance with a rendition of his hit song "Talk Dirty to Me", dancing across the stage. He was later joined by groups of dancers and cheerleaders during his performance of "Love Like That". He finished his performance with "Want to Want Me". A group of supporters joined him during this performance, but it looked like none of them know what song Jason was singing.
Following his performance, people immediately took to Twitter to slam the Florida native, saying that having Jason perform at a football stadium was disrespectful. "Having Jason perform anywhere near a football stadium is a way bigger disrespect to the troops than kneeling for the anthem," a Twitter user wrote.

Another questioned NFL's decision of choosing Jason as the halftime performer instead of Big Sean, who was also at the stadium to watch the game. "Big Sean is in the stadium, but the NFL decided it would be a better idea to have Jason perform?" one tweeted. Another echoed the remark, "Big Sean is in Detroit and the Lions had Jason perform at halftime," adding a thinking emoji.

Politician Bakari Sellers also took a dig at the 28-year-old singer. He tweeted, "Man, Jason out here sounding like me in the shower," to which a Twitter user responded, "I was thinking something similar. That was terrible!!"

"Everyone on Earth when Jason came out for a halftime show," another tweeted, adding a picture of disbelieved Snoop Dogg. One other similarly commented, "The crowd's faces watching Jason performing at halftime."
