Dear CBS: It's too late to apologize for showing that live feed of One Republic during the Super Bowl pre-game. #Awful—

Ryan Tedder, the lead singer for OneRepublic, is a brilliant and successful songwriter. But Twitter users agree he didn’t have all the right moves during today’s pre-Super Bowl show:
Even OneRepublic fans had to admit Tedder’s vocals fell short:
OneRepublic were one of the many performers to take the stage at the 2011 American Music Awards. Although they weren’t awful, their performance definitely fell short in comparison to the other artists who performed at the Nokia Theatre on Nov. 20. Ryan Tedder seemed to be struggling throughout the song, especially during the higher notes in the chorus of their hit track ‘Good Life.’
Look on the bright side: CBS could have booked a live performance by Nicki Minaj.
