Starting with « Everybody Rise », she continued with a performance of her latest single « C’MON », featuring a recording by American drummer Travis Barker

Shark then pulled out a guitar and released a cover of the INXS classic ‘Never Tear Us Apart’, with help from legendary Andrew Farriss and Kirk Pengilly who managed to briefly reignite the energy before Shark ends with his strongest song that saved an ensemble that didn’t quite match the moment

While fans recognized Shark’s talent, many commented that she was an odd choice for the rugby league main event

There were also natural comparisons to the AFL with NRL fans quick to proclaim Shark and INXS the default winner

Whether you like Amy Shark’s music or not, I think it’s totally fair to say that she’s not the right artist for a pre-game show Bring the Energy Make people better 🤷‍♂️ #NRLGF

Same problem with Amy Shark as the opening bands last night Nothing bad musically, but far from upbeat and energetic enough for pre-game entertainment #NRLGF #AFLGF

Why don’t they ever choose rock bands for big sports finals / championship matches? It’s called stadium rock for a reason It’s music designed to pump up a stadium, not to put it to sleep #NRLGF

Amy Shark just a few bars in her first song & is better than all the pre-game entertainment AFL GF #NRLGF
