Ariana Grande Performance Bores Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton at iHeartRadio Music Awards

Sounding every bit like a younger Mariah Carey, Ariana Grande’s iHeartRadio Music Awards performance brought the house down Thursday night on NBC.

Well, we thought so. Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton weren't as impressed.

Ariana's medley of "The Way" and "Problem" had most of the crowd on its feet, but the image of the two country stars' expressions went viral after the show.

Skip ahead to the 3:00 mark to see the duo "reacting" to the performance:

Twitter, the breeding ground for viral reactions and instant commentary, made sure this was the enduring image of the inaugural, random awards show.

But unlike Miley Cyrus Twerking at the VMAs, this wasn't even that bad!

On the contrary, Ariana and her dancers did a decent, if not terrific job on stage by all accounts. Even if you're not a fan of the genre, girl has got talent!

Bryan even joked about it after the fact, making clear he was impressed by her performance and Tweeting "wow me concentrating does not look good."

He even made a screen shot of the duo his background. Check it out:

Luke and Blake clearly won for Best Reaction Shot of the night, but who took home the actual honors at the event celebrating all things popular music?
