Bebe Rexha and her little stage bulging during the NFL Thanksgiving Day halftime

Detroit was feeling a little blue after Bebe Rexha hit her weirdly blocked stage to perform a medley of her hits during her halftime show at the NFL’s annual Thanksgiving Day game.

After the Detroit Lions and Buffalo Bills retreated to their locker rooms for the halftime break, Rexha took the stage — which, judging by a fan-shared video from the game, happened in a small corner of the stadium — to go through several of her hit songs, including a rendition of her 2015 David Guetta/Nicki Minaj/Afrojack smash “Hey Mama” amid a setup inspired by the 1999 film The Matrix.

When Rexha finished singing and launched into a dance-based breakdown mid-song, the audience audibly booed the artist. But apparently it wasn’t because they didn’t like her performance, it was because they actually couldn’t see her performance.

“Bebe Rexha got booed here in Detroit for not even being visible from the crowd during her performance. Lmao,” one Twitter user wrote along with a video from the event.

Rexha then transitioned into her signature song — 2017’s Florida Georgia Line-assisted collaboration “Meant to Be” — before closing with current hit “I’m Good” (Blue), another single featuring Guetta that heavily samples Eiffel 65’s 1998 song “Blue (Da Ba Dee).”

As Rexha finished, the crowd at Ford Field erupted again with boos that appeared to be aimed at the 33-year-old singer.

Earlier on Thursday, a fan asked Rexha on Twitter if she was nervous about performing, to which she replied “Yesssssss.”

While her halftime show didn’t land with everyone in Michigan, “I’m Good (Blue)” quickly became one of the biggest hits of Rexha’s career after its release in August. In addition to earning a Grammy nomination for Best Dance/Electronic Recording, the song reached No. 1 in the UK and Australia and peaked at No. 7 in the US – Rexha’s highest charting since “I’m a Mess” went to No. 35 in 2018 .
