Camila Cabello may not have known what she was getting herself into when she kicked off the 2022 Champions League Final between Liverpool and Real Madrid for the Union of European Football Associations. This fall, she’ll join the cast of The Voice as a coach on Season 22, and she wasn’t a fan of soccer fans’ loud cheering. In two tweets that have since been deleted, she called them singing and chanting over her performance “extremely nasty.”

According to Page Six, Liverpool and Real Madrid fans appeared to be drowning out Camila Cabello’s set, which included a mashup of her singles “Seorita,” “Havana,” and “Bam Bam,” during her nearly six-minute opening number for the UEFA match. She took to Twitter shortly after the game to voice her displeasure with supporters:


Very rude but whatever. I’M GLAD U GUYS LOVED IT!!!!!

Soon after she initially sent her “extremely impolite” tweet, she went on to say more about how she felt disrespected by the fans’ conduct and how much work she had put into her performance, according to the new report.

Playing back our performance and I can’t believe people were singing their teams anthem so loud during our performance. Like my team and i worked tirelessly for so long to bring right vibes and give a good show.


A few minutes later, both tweets had been taken off. Even though Camila Cabello’s kickoff was overshadowed, I can understand her disappointment. Performing in front of so many people, especially if it’s evident that they’re otherwise distracted, takes a lot of time and effort, and it must be difficult for them. Given that both teams have two of the world’s largest fanbases and European football fans have a reputation for creating a great atmosphere at games, the crowd’s antics aren’t all that shocking.

Later in the day she changed her tone, thanking the UEFA for inviting her to participate in the event, which she said she thoroughly appreciated as a woman who grew up watching football with her family.

Season 22 of The Voice on NBC kicks up this autumn, and former Fifth Harmony member Nicki Minaj will serve as a Battle Round advisor for John Legend in Season 21. She replaces Kelly Clarkson, who is expected to be busy with the relaunch of her daytime talk show, and will be joined by Legend, long-timer Blake Shelton, and Shelton’s wife and fellow music legend Gwen Stefani for her first season in the Big Red Chairs. For Cabello, much like for Fifth Harmony, recognition came as a result of their appearance on The X Factor in the United Kingdom, a reality competition.
