Worst thing I’ve ever seen on telly

Sunday Brunch viewers call out ‘cringe’ performance

Joel’s performance didn’t grab the viewers though. Many took to Twitter to air their opinions at the 31-year-old’s performance, and they clearly weren’t fans.

One said: “Possibly the cringiest moment in TV history…and I’m comparing that to some serious contenders.”

Another echoed: “Worst thing I’ve ever seen on telly that. Scraping the barrel doesn’t cover it. As a DJ myself it was equally as awkward as it was horrific to watch.”

A third said: “Yeah, that was pretty hard to watch.”

A fourth added: “I understand work went into making this but was he actually doing anything with those decks? It was a man dancing a bit to music with a video behind him.

One even accused Channel 4 of ‘struggling’ for talent:

Many viewers were in hysterics at Joel’s dance moves and how he barely touched the obligatory DJ decks:

Some viewers were fans of the song

Not all viewers were so critical. Some were fans of the song’s catchy beat, which seemed to balance out the performance.

One viewer didn’t understand all the negativity:

Who is Joel Corry?

Joel Corry isn’t a familiar face to many, and some viewers were left confused over who he was. For those unsure, Joel was briefly featured on MTV’s Geordie Shore with then-girlfriend Sophie Kasei.

The 31-year-old from London also works as a personal trainer when he isn’t on the decks.

He has performed as a DJ since 2015, and his 2019 single Sorry made it to number six in the UK Singles Charts after being featured on Love Island.
