Post Malone’s rendition of “America the Beautiful” at the Super Bowl left viewers scratching their heads.
During the live broadcast on Sunday, February 11, the 28-year-old music sensation graced the field prior to the showdown between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers to deliver his homage to the United States. However, the reaction online wasn’t overwhelmingly positive.
“Post Malone singing country music, this ain’t it lil bro,” remarked one user on social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter, criticizing the song’s style.
“They’re so unserious with Post Malone singing this song…” echoed another, expressing dissatisfaction with the choice.
“Post Malone doing the national anthem?” quipped a third user alongside a GIF of a puzzled John C. Reilly.
Adding to the confusion, a moment ensued where Brittany Mahomes, seemingly in jest, coerced Post Malone—known for his allegiance to the Dallas Cowboys—to swap his Cowboys coat for a Chiefs jacket. The humorous exchange saw Brittany playfully urging Malone to shed his Cowboys gear and embrace the Chiefs attire, culminating in a hug between the two.
The unexpected pairing of Brittany Mahomes and Post Malone is certainly one that caught many off guard.
