Buble Logies performance ridiculed

Michael Buble was criticised for his performance at the Logie Awards

Michael Buble has come under fire for his performance at Australian TV awards the Logies.

The Canadian crooner performed his new single It's A Beautiful Day live at the high profile ceremony in Melbourne at the weekend, but his over enthusiastic heckling of host Richard Wilkins and his slightly off-beat performance, led to speculation he might have been a little the worse for wear.

As Wilkins introduced Buble, saying: "He is one of the most successful recording and performing artists in the world," the singer shouted out "Gigantic!"

Wilkins went on: "He has sold over 30 million albums," and the singer corrected: "Forty million records." Wilkins added: "And he is the sixth highest grossing touring act in the world," to which Buble shouted out "Fifth! Number five!" As Wilkins plugged his album, Buble shouted: "It's a must have!"

The singer then began dancing energetically and launched into the opening lines of his song, sounding slightly off key, and adjusted his ear piece. The performance went on, sounding muffled and even slurred in places.

Fans took to Twitter to speculate the singer was drunk and called his performance "shocking" and questioning what was wrong with him. One tweeter even commented "Shockingly bad" .

But one Australian paper reported Buble sounded "great in the room, but terrible on television".

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Leo:

Don't get involved with a hidden intrigue. The drama will be exciting at first, but eventually you will tire of keeping secrets. If someone is interested in you romantically, you shouldn't have to sneak around together. An oppressive work situation may tempt you to quit your job. Try not to discuss your plans with colleagues. You don't want a rival to tell your employer about your resignation until you're ready to tender it. Protect your interests at all costs.More
