All did not got well for Miley Cyrus, who was the musical act in between the Final Four games on Saturday night from Indianapolis. Sensitive-eared listeners slammed the pop star's performance of a series of covers from the '60s to the '80s, including hits from the likes of Queen, Blondie, Stevie Nicks and Grand Funk Railroad.

As Baylor won against Houston 78-59, many fans looked for something else to entertain them ahead of the UCLA-Gonzaga game, as the NCAA's promotion ahead of 'Wrecking Ball' singer's act said: “Multi-platinum selling recording artist Miley Cyrus will perform a Tribute to Frontline Heroes during the Capital One Tournament Central show airing on CBS in between the first and second National Semifinal games with frontline heroes in attendance.”

'Make it stop please'

Picky netizens poured their thoughts into Twitter. A user said, "Turn the TV on to watch basketball right in time to catch Miley Cyrus to defile Blondie. Can’t decide which is worse, her cover of heart of glass or the people dancing in personal Covid squares. Make it stop please." "When I was a kid I had all the music of the 60’s 70’s and 80’s by the time the 90’s came along I lost interest I graduated in’75. Watching Miley Cyrus poaching a Blondie classic tonight, I feel sorry for the kids today," added another. "Watching Miley Cyrus butcher Queen, Blondie and Stevie Nicks at the NCCA basketball finals. Wow. Not good. Sorry." quipped a third.

"What in the world is happening right now and why is Miley Cyrus signing Queen songs in between Final Four games? I blame the NCAA for this. Just like everything else," said a netizen.

'How much do the players get?'

Netizens wondered why Miley Cyrus was performing at the Final Four at all. "So Capital One and presumably AT&T paid Miley Cyrus a bunch of money to do cover songs. Remind me how much the players get again?" said a Twitter user. "What if we paid college athletes whatever it’s costing for this 30 minute Miley Cyrus concert? #FinalFour," said another.

"I’m pretty sure if we used this Miley Cyrus performance against combatants it would be considered a war crime under the Geneva Convention. #FinalFour," a Twitter user said. "Miley Cyrus singing a Blondie cover in Melissa Etheridge’s voice was not on my bucket list before. Still not," said another.

'Want to be Miley in my next life'

Not all were disappointed of course. A Twitter user said, "That Miley Cyrus show at halftime of the Final Four was great and I don’t care about what any of you jokers say to the contrary." Some posted praises by Stevie Bicks and Blondie, fighting back trolls saying, "50 million people disagree with you, including blondie and stevie, just stop embarrassing yourself and being scared of a woman's power."

"Miley Cyrus please run me over with a lawnmower and throw me into a volcano off a Werner ladder the offical ladder of the NCAA tournament," said another. "In my next life I would like to be Miley Cyrus That’s all," another added.
