Fans BLAST NBC For Not Airing Ozzy Osbourne’s Thursday Night Football Halftime Performance

Ozzy Osbourne fans were left at a loss after NBC barely aired the rocker’s NFL halftime act on Thursday. The 73-year-old musician was in the middle of a brand new song from his latest album, Patient Number 9, when sportscaster Maria Taylor began the performance.

The network then moved away for 10 seconds to show Osbourne on stage before returning to Taylor and her staff. As sportscasters covered the Los Angeles Rams vs. Buffalo Bills game, the former Black Sabbath leader sang his popular song “Crazy Train,” as featured in fan videos that have since gone viral online.

Fans are snapping at NBC for not broadcasting Ozzy Osbourne’s Thursday night football halftime performance

Some Twitter users slammed the decision as “blasphemous” and “garbage,” while others said it was “puzzling” that NBC thought viewers would rather hear a first-half recap than Ozzy Osbourne’s performance.

Twitter users raged, saying: “NBC thinks we’d rather hear a 1st half recap than Ozzy Osbourne’s performance is… puzzling.”I can’t believe the NFL played interviews and highlights on Ozzy Osbourne’s halftime performance. That’s just blasphemous,” and “I’m so pissed – @NBC – YOU SUCK!!! WTF?!? I looked forward to seeing it @OzzyOsbourne for days – some of us can’t afford to go to concerts right now. #rock’n’roll keeps me from falling down the rabbit hole of depression. Ozzy looked so happy in the two seconds we saw him.”

Osbourne made his second appearance on stage after undergoing “life-changing” surgery during the concert in June. Unfortunately for some reason we couldn’t witness it. Why they thought people back home wouldn’t want to see the popular rocker is beyond me, and we’re hoping to witness Ozzy rock another halftime show sometime this year. Maybe a Super Bowl show? Back to the classics!
