The AFL Grand Final brought out the local Australian talent for a joyful pre-game show. 

The likes of Abbe May, Baker Boy, John Butler, Stella Donnelly, Vikki Thorn, Donna Simpson, Gina Williams, Guy Ghouse, Eskimo Joe, and Colin Hay all commanded the stage, performing a series of Aussie cover songs. 

But not everyone watching at home was impressed, with some calling the musical entertainment 'worse than Meatloaf' - referring to American singer Meatloaf putting in a widely panned 12-minute performance at the 2011 AFL Grand Final.

One person Tweeted: 'I didn't think anybody would be worse than Meatloaf… I was wrong'. 

Another chimed in: 'Did the #AFL really think horrible cover bands for the #AFLGF pregame was somehow an upgrade from Meat Loaf?' 

Yet one viewer more wrote: 'What the hell am I watching? This is borderline Meatloaf here.'
