‘Best entertainment in years’: Robbie Williams beats the AFL final at the MCG

Pop icon Robbie Williams rocked the MCG ahead of the AFL final, paying homage to some of the nation’s legends.

The epic performance had everything from a bright fuchsia dress, mohawk-mullet, bagpipes, flames and exactly what you’d expect from a legendary world-class performer.

There was speculation ahead of the pre-game entertainment, but as soon as Williams’ performance began, visitors to the MCG rose from their seats and spectators back home were equally impressed.

“Give Robbie Williams the Norm Smith medal now, the best ultimate entertainment in years,” said a Twitter user.

“It was sensational,” said another.

The reaction from those who tuned in to the show before the first bounce was nearly unanimous as fans took to social media to request Williams to perform at the Grand Final every year.

The icon also paid tribute to the late Shane Warne, pointing to Warnie’s family sitting in the stands while singing his hit song Angels, as well as Australian phenomenon John Farnham who recently underwent cancer surgery, singing the ” unofficial Australian anthem “, You’re the voice.

Williams also welcomed Australian megastar Delta Goodrem to his side, in a matching bright pink jumpsuit as 100,000 fans sang along to “Kids” with the pair.
