The AFL has once again dished up another Grand Final performance of Meat Loaf proportions with Black Eyed Peas causing Australia to ask the question… WHY?
The Black Eyed Peas performance was so underwhelming that will.i.am even checked his phone after the first song.
Did one of the Black Eyed Peas just check his phone half way through the first song? #AFLGrandFinal

The saving grace for the AFL was Australian legend Jimmy Barnes honouring an Australian institution with Australian classics.
After Meat Loaf botched his AFL performance so badly in 2011 no-one thought the AFL in their wisdom could ever schedule another disaster.
Black Eyed Peas delivered on the disaster. The audience hated it, turning to Twitter to vent.
This Black Eyed Peas cover band isn’t very good #AFLGrandFinal

Every year. Every single year, I think “Why isn’t the AFL GF a showcase of AUSTRALIAN musicians?”#AFLGrandFinal
