Super Bowl fans watching The Weeknd’s halftime performance at home grumbled that the show made them feel dizzy. The 30-year-old sang his heart out while cameras flitted between him and scores of male dancers wearing red suits and bandage-style masks around their face. But for many people at home, the effect left them feeling a tad queasy.
In the opening of his performances, he was somewhat ‘’trapped’’ in a gold room at the Raymond James Stadium in Florida, and he had to search within a maze of gold walls, to find his way out. He kept on bouncing into the red-suited dancers as cameras narrowly avoided hitting them in the face. Cue the memes and gifs, with one fan tweeting, “Me trying to follow the hostess to my table at the Cheesecake Factory.”

That selfie cam is making me very dizzy and I haven’t had a drink. I feel for those who have been at the bar for a few hours. #TheWeeknd #Halftime

Comedian Michelle Collins also took to Twitter to complain. “If this #PepsiHalftime is a subliminal attempt to get me to drink soda because of how nauseous I feel… well then genius.” Others dragged the show for its weak audio. “TURN THE MIC UP,” actress Valerie Bertinelli tweeted, before adding, “Somebody turn @theweeknd’s mic up, can barely hear him.” Maria Shriver also complained about the sound. “I can’t hear @theweeknd either and my volume is up.”

It’s a disappointing result for a show that many Weeknd fans had been anticipating for months. The countdown to Super Bowl LV’s halftime show began weeks ago, with speculation mounting over whether or not the Canadian crooner had any surprise guest performers in store. But The Weeknd put those hopes to bed on Feb. 4, saying there will be no special guests. And….. he was right. So we, as fans, have the right to complaint. OoooOOO shucks.
