Champions League Pre Match Performer Has A Go At Fans Before Deleting Tweet
| Last updated
Popstar Camila Cabello had a go at fans for singing their own team's songs at the Champions League final whilst she was performing, before deleting her post.
Cabello was the warm up act for the Champions League final, as UEFA continue to think that the game needs to be more like the Super Bowl.
Saturday's match was postponed, with Liverpool fans struggling to get in because of the awful organisation outside the stadium, whilst Real Madrid fans sat and waited.
Whilst the delay was going on, UEFA still waited to bring Cabello out, meaning the match didn't actually kick off until 8.36 pm, UK time, six further minutes after the previously announced time, just so the 25-year-old could perform her songs.
Fans in the Stade de France, and plenty watching on television, weren't happy with her performance and they continued to sing over her.
She took to Twitter to share her displeasure at the fans, complaining about how much effort her, and her team, had put into the display, before deleting it due to the reaction against her.

This is about as welcome as a game of 5-a-side would be before a Camila Cabello gig.— Richard Osman (@richardosman) May 28, 2022
I love Camilo Cabello, but not before a Champions League final 🤣 Spare me this NFL style stuff #ucl— Tash Everitt (@natashaeveritt7) May 28, 2022
There’s not a single person who watches football who gives two fucks about this Camila Cabello performance. Get rid of this nonsense, we’re not Americans; this is football #ChampionsLeague— Sebastian (@Sebastian__4) May 28, 2022
The fact that Cabello went on after all the delays, when she could have played whilst fans waited patiently for the game was a bad decision.
It added literal insult to injury, to those who had been pepper sprayed and tear gassed by police after hours of waiting to get into the stadium.
As well as the singing from fans, others claimed that there were boos towards the Cuban performer, which probably wasn't personal and more that there's no need for the performance.
Earlier in the year, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi claimed that the Champions League final didn't feel as 'big' an event as NFL's showpiece Super Bowl.
The the Chairman of the European Club Association claimed that he wanted a pre match show, which he got on Saturday, as well as the winner's taking on a 'big team' in the opening round fixture.
Al-Khelaifi could also see his second suggestion brought into play from 2024, with the new format of the competition coming in to play.
The teams will play in a single group and face eight games, which means it's easier to group 'big' teams together and have them play on game week one.
After the group, there will no longer be intraleague immunity in the knockout stages, meaning two Premier League sides could face in the last 16, and the route to the final for the entire competition will be known from the knockouts, with no draws needed.
Hopefully whatever comes next, it will be without another pre match concert, but we all know that won't be the case...
