Amy Shark is cruelly trolled on Twitter for NRL Grand Final performance

Australian singer-songwriter Amy Shark kicked off the pre-game entertainment for the NRL Grand Final in Sydney on Sunday.

The 34-year-old multiple Aria Award-winner took to the stage in a black crop top and skinny jeans, and performed a number of her hits, including 2020’s Everybody Rise.

However, she was cruelly trolled on Twitter, with many suggesting her ‘vibe’ wasn’t worthy of a Grand Final performance.

‘I’m not a fan of Amy Shark – and acknowledge she is very talented – but the Triple J vibe really isn’t Grand Final entertainment-worthy,’ one wrote. 

Another agreed, posting: ‘Amy Shark… beautiful girl and talented, but completely wrong for the NRL Grand Final,’ alongside the hashtag ‘boring’. 

Others were rather blunt, commenting with the likes of ‘shocking’ and ‘Is she going to sing at all? That was terrible!’
