The best performance at last night's iHeartRadio Awards show wasn't on stage. It was in the audience. Did you happen to catch country singer Luke Bryan's face during Ariana Grande's performance? While Ariana shook her booty to "Problem," he and Blake Shelton actually looked like they were having a problem, scowling like a couple of uncomfortable dads at a high school talent show. Wow, I thought she did okay. Was it really that bad from where they sat? And what's with Rihanna's reaction?
Riri bopped her head along with the hit at first, but later she was caught giggling behind her hand. Between her snickering and Luke and Blake's nonplussed stares, you'd think Ariana was The Worst, and not the recipient of the Young Influencer award. (I guess the two aren't mutually exclusive, come to think of it.)
Well at least Luke tried to make amends when he found out his scowl had gone viral. He used the photo for his Twitter background and then tweeted this:
Wow me concentrating doesn't look good.— Luke Bryan (@LukeBryanOnline) May 2, 2014
Oh, riiiight, you were concentrating! Okay, Luke. We believe you. Here's what I think everyone was really thinking.
Ariana: OMG, black sequin mini-dress, white platform boots, and long extensions -- I am TOTES QUEWT!
Rihanna: Did she just try to twerk? Was that what I just saw, a twerk attempt? Bwa hahahaha, work it, girl!
Blake: Somebody please put me out of my misery. Right now. I am in pain.
Luke: Gotta pee. SO BAD! When is this thing over?
It's okay, Luke. You can admit what you were really thinking. We've all been there.
Do you think Luke actually hated Ariana Grande's performance, or was he just "concentrating"?
