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:

Sadly, it isn’t the first time this has happened.

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.

    I’ve never heard of one republic or their music and since I’m avoiding all super bowl coverage I still haven’t

    Actually JoJo Roca, today IS the day the music died… the one commemorated in the song “American Pie”… 1959… Buddy Holly, J.P. Richardson, and Ritchie Valens died in a plane crash following their performance in Clear Lake, IA.

    At least he writes his own music, as well as being a writer and producer for acts like Beyoncé and Kelly Clarkson. If you ever look at his discography you’d be surprised how many hits he was involved with in this decade.

    you must be crazy if you think Ryan Tedder can’t sing. he has an amazing voice and he has powerful lyrics in his music.

      if he gave this performance on American Idol, he wouldn’t have made it past 1st round.
