Ellie Goulding’s AFL Grand Final performance had everyone talking. Unfortunately it was for all the wrong reasons.
Ellie Goulding is right in the Meat Loaf category. #aflgf

Let’s just forget the whole Ellie Goulding thing ever happened and just appreciate Bryan Adams right now #AFLGF

Ellie responded to the lip-sync accusations and also enquired about where she might be able to find a Tofu-burger.
Love it when people think I lip sync, what a rad compliment 🙂 Now where does one find a good veggie restaurant in Melbs?

Anyway- we’ll leave you to judge for yourself.
Goulding’s performance wasn’t the first- and certainly won’t be the last pre-game entertainment debacle.
Let’s enjoy these five other classics.
5. Holy Nipple
The millions tuning in to the 2004 Superbowl got an eyeful at the end of this Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake performance.
4. Dutch Debacle
The beyondthegame.tv team are absolutely speechless after watching this one. Apparently these are Dutch idol contestants doing Tina Turner’s Simply the Best. Wow.
3. South African National Anthem Karaoke Style
The South African Springboks stars were left looking fairly confused after this bloke belted out their National Anthem before their test against England.
2. Oh Billy!
The NRL outdid itself in 2002 unleashing Billy Idol onto the stadium in a hovercraft. The Hovercraft worked fine- but unfortunately when he got onto the stage the electronics blew and he never performed a song. At least the hovercraft was cool.
1. Meat Loaf Meltdown.
This goes down as one of the most infamous Grand Final moments of all time. The AFL spent a squillion getting Meat Loaf to perform at the Grannie. Turns out they would have been better off throwing a $20 note to one of the buskers on Burke St.
Check out the reactions of his co-guitarists.
Many people are wondering where Angry Anderson and his blue batmobile from 1991 are. Well this article is about fails- and we reckon Angry Anderson killed it. 11/10 to Angry. Here is the great man in all his glory.
2015 Grand Final weekend certainly lived up to all the hype- with plenty of controversy- and some incredible on-field heroics.
