Did you catch the BLOOPER during Birds of Tokyo’s halftime performance in the AFL Grand Final?
The Tokyo Birds performed at a crowded Optus Stadium on Saturday during the AFL Grand Final.
The five-piece Perth band performed their hit song Laterns, a cover of Silverchair’s Straight Lines, before completing the halftime show with Unbreakable.
However, eagle-eyed viewers reportedly noticed a bizarre situation occurring among the dancers in front of the stage during the final song.

At least half of the dancers couldn’t turn on their glow sticks, resulting in dark spots where there should have been a canopy of light.
Quick-thinking fans used the lights on their phones to fill in the missing areas, creating a makeshift fairy lights effect.

One person tweeted: “The worst cover of a song by Silverchair! while another agreed: “Please don’t touch Silverchair. They are sacred.

However, others enjoyed the show, with one writing, “The birds of Tokyo did it! While another said: “The halftime show is well done. I think we need to move to Perth! ”
