Brothers Osborne Thanksgiving Day Halftime Performance Marred by Sound Issues

“We’ll get it figured out” country duo said during Detroit halftime show

Guitars and vocals were replaced with the sound of fans booing on Thursday as the Brothers Osborne’s halftime performance at the Chicago Bears-Detroit Lions game was delayed for several minutes by audio issues.

The first two attempts by the country music duo to start their performance were derailed by sound problems. Fox announcer Joe Buck, noting the boos from the eager fans, said: “The crowd [is] almost willing this to happen.”

Seconds into the country duo’s performance at Ford Field in Detroit, the sound cut out and the crowd let out an audible gasp. You can check out the mini-fiasco below:

“We’ll get it figured out,” one of the brothers said into the microphone, as fans continued to wait in silence on the turf at Ford Field.

Buck asked his partner Troy Aikman if they had anything else they wanted to discuss from the first half, which ended with the Lions leading 17-10, and they both decided there wasn’t much to say to break up the confusion.

It’s unclear what caused the audio glitch. The NFL did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.

Finally, after several awkward minutes, the performance started up again. “Third time’s the charm,” Buck said.

The moment, of course, was instantly mocked on Twitter — with even the local paper getting in on the jokes:

If Detroit wins, they will move to 38-40-2 on Thanksgiving day.
