The 1975 Tells You They're Terrible So Others Don't Have To
So I was catching up on performaces from the BRIT Awards, and was super surprised by the 1975's performance.
I was casually listening, then started skipping because the song is pretty repetative, when a pink screen made me stop.
These critizisms were flashing throughout the whole performance, and were shown on giant screens during the live performance.
Many viewers apparently thought the show had been hacked by someone who hated the band - the reality was that the quotes were used in their video for 'The Sound.'
The quotes were taken from reviews of their debut album and work as a pretty good "f**k you" for a band who rapidly rose to become one of the biggest in the country.
It's true that I wasn't blown away by the performance, but it felt so funny to see these comments made me laugh so hard!
