Rod Stewart left fans unimpressed on Saturday night when he released Sweet Caroline at the star-studded Platinum Jubilee concert.

While partygoers went wild for Rod’s cover, BBC viewers felt Rod “slaughter” the famous karaoke song.

After the show, Rod revealed that he and his backing singers had all recently recovered from Covid-19 after returning to the UK in the midst of his US tour.

“I came home especially for this, and I got Covid and I’m over it! All six of us got it, we’re just happy to be here,” he said.

Sir Rod was welcomed on stage as a ‘rock legend’ and began singing Baby Jane along with three backing singers, wearing dresses that reflected the colors of Union Jack.

Sir Rod – whose wife Penny Lancaster watched him from the audience – dressed briskly in a bright yellow suit jacket, which he paired with black trousers and a crisp white shirt for a popping performance.

“I’m going to pretend I didn’t just listen to Rod Stewart live and erase it from my memory because it makes me sad when great artists like him lose their touch. I love him, but that was something,” one added:
