TOP 10 MUSICIANS WHO GOT BOOED
It takes a lot of guts to get up on a stage to give a live performance to a crowd of thousands of people. However, you would think that after years of training and performing, these musicians would be praised by their fans whenever they step up on the stage. However, whether they just had a bad day or just lacked talent altogether, here are ten musicians that were booed off the stage.
1) KANYE WEST AT THE BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS
If it wasn’t bad enough that Kylie and Kendall Jenner were booed while introducing their brother-in-law, but everything about this performance was just [insert bleep]. He really was like Yeezus: you couldn’t hear him since almost the entirety of his performance was bleeped AND you couldn’t see him.
2) NICKELBACK IN PORTUGAL
Naturally kicking off our list of suckage is a band that possible sucks more than the rest combined, Nickelback. At a concert in Portugal the audience started throwing rocks at the stage after two songs. Chad asked the crowd: “Are there any Nickelback fans in Portugal?” to which the audience promptly replied: “No!”
3) ASHLEE SIMPSON AT THE ORANGE BOWL
Ahh yes, another repeatedly booed offender. I could have gone with the SNL performance, but we took the low road and went with her Orange Bowl Halftime nonsense. This goes to show that crowds will wait for the fireworks to stop so that the booing can go on. P.S. I found the shortest video clip possible so that your ears wouldn’t bleed from her screeching.
4) DRUNK AMY WINEHOUSE IN SERBIA
Much love goes out to this talented musician, but I’d be pissed too if I had paid good money to see her perform and ended up witnessing this drunken mess. You gotta love how even though she can barely walk, she still attempts to sing.
5) RIFF RAFF GETS THE SHOE
Does it really take that much effort to sing his songs anyway? Like any good interruption, Riff Raff got the boot (literally) when he was caught lip-syncing at a performance in Philly.
6) JUSTIN BIEBER DIDN'T HAVE A CHANCE
Just announcing his name at the 100th Gray Cup Half time show was enough to get the crowd booing. This was edited out on television, so I thought it best to show a news clip instead. Especially since it also explains what was going on for the Biebs in that same week.
7) DRAKE IN LA...WAIT
Obviously the best way to win fans over is to get the name of their city wrong. It’s an honest mistake – San Jose/LA, it’s not like California is a huge state.
8) NICKI MINAJ IN SCOTLAND
Ms. Minaj has been booed so many times that it was difficult to find this video. Apparently the public’s anaconda really didn’t want none. Especially since she was fifty minutes late and thought that it would be cool to just start playing.
9) 50 CENT BOOED ACROSS THE POND
Apparently Brits just couldn’t get in da club and appreciate his urban beats. But then again he was at a rock festival in Reading, England. Who thought that this would be a good idea?
10) KANYE’S RANT
Another repeat offender on the list. This time he was actually performing when he got booed. Well, not really, he went on a twenty minute rant at a London music festival mid-performance. Also, that face mask LOL.
QUEEN BEY BOOED IN THE RAIN
Beyoncé can do no wrong. Except arriving late to fans in the rain and then performing with audio issues. Oh and fans at home couldn’t see her because of licensing issues. But nonetheless Bey can do no wrong.
From the no talents to even Queen Bey herself, they’ve all been booed at least once in their careers (and some, more than others). Whether it’s their egos or the paycheck, these musicians can’t seem to stop even after being booed on stage, especially Kayne. I guess you can’t make it to the top without having a couple fallen moments. Can you think of other musicians who’ve been booed?
