Footy fans have rallied around Mark Seymour after the Hunters & Collectors star’s dismal performance in the AFL Grand Final.
Seymour, 67, took center stage during half-time following two quarters of electric action between Collingwood and Brisbane at the MCG on Saturday afternoon.
But the Australian music legend – alongside Kate Miller-Heidke – couldn’t match the energy of the 36 players on the football field with what fans described as a lifeless performance of Holy Grail, among other successes.
“One of the worst halftime shows ever,” posted a fan on Twitter, now known as X. “What was Mark Seymour doing.”
Another said: “Why is this the worst version of the Holy Grail story? It’s Mark Seymour, it should smoke. Damn, someone pull the plug.’

Some fans compared the performance to that of a pub singer.
“Mark Seymour playing in a casual, acoustic beer garden in the middle of the MCG is not Grand Final worthy,” said a third fan.
Another added: “I love Mark Seymour but I feel like I’m in a pub having a good arvo session and some guy with a guitar comes out and starts singing covers, killing the l ‘atmosphere.”
“I’m a big fan of Kate Miller-Heidke…and I love Mark Seymour & Hunters…but it’s a little flat after the two quarters we just saw. Great harmonies, but not a patch on football.
