Sir Rod Stewart’s ‘Awful’ Performance Causes Royal Variety viewers to Switch Off
ITV viewers were not overly impressed with Sir Rod Stewart’s appearance at The Royal Variety Performance on Sunday evening.
As people tuned into the event, which was hosted by comedian Alan Carr, they got a glimpse of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge before Sir Rod took to the stage to perform One More Time.
Taking to Twitter, one person wrote: “No thanks. Got as far as Rod Stewart and that’s enough. #RoyalVarietyPerformance.”
Another person tweeted: “That was AWFUL sir!#RoyalVarietyPerformance
A third viewer posted: “@ ITV anyone else just had third party embarrassment watching Rod Stewart? Please call it a day Rod, please. #RoyalVarietyPerformance.”
And a fourth added: “Rod Stewart….I literally have no words for that performance #RoyalVarietyPerformance.”
Someone else said: “After his Graham Norton appearance, you would of thought someone would of thought nope maybe not Rod? #rodstewart #RoyalVarietyPerformance.”
Sir Rod was roasted last month after performing on The Graham Norton Show.
One person tweeted: “This Rod Stewart performance on Graham Norton is the worst thing I have seen in quite some time.”
Another posted: “It was bad already, and then that key change really cemented it!”
Someone else said: “Totally agree. What the hell was that? And his ‘group’ – the audience for that gig really dubious in the hair and leg requirement #RodStewart #parody.”
However, others tuning into The Royal Variety Performance were impressed with Rod’s song with one writing on Twitter: “Love a bit of Rod. Great performance and love the leopard Leopard print outfit.
Someone else said: “#RoyalVarietyPerformance here’s a daring idea. If you don’t like it, don’t watch it, instead of criticising everything. Some of us are enjoying it.”
