Twitter Is Absolutely Roasting the “Trainwreck” That Is ‘The Little Mermaid Live!’

I truly didn’t think anything would ever top The Masked Singer and make the whole nation go “How TF was this approved?” but The Little Mermaid Live! just put us all in our place. The much-anticipated show aired on ABC last night to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the classic Disney movie, and Twitter was not prepared for what unfolded over the next couple of hours.

Despite all the hype surrounding it and the fact that Queen Latifah, John Stamos, Shaggy, and Auli’i Cravalho from Moana were some of the main stars, it ended up being what some have called a “trainwreck.”

Pretty much everyone can agree that Queen Latifah stole the show as Ursula, but everything else seemed to be a hot mess.

i’m not saying queen latifah is saving #LittleMermaidLive but queen latifah is saving #LittleMermaidLive 🤡 pic.twitter.com/QN8uP5a6a7

First off, a lot of people were confused by the format, which alternated between showing the actual movie before transitioning to the live show. It was an interesting artistic choice, but a choice nonetheless.

So we getting one song then 15 mins of movie .. then one song… then more movie ….tf is this lol #LittleMermaidLive pic.twitter.com/7sneiI98lH

Am I the only one who thought there’d be more “live” in #LittleMermaidLive? pic.twitter.com/XLjO6hZGUa

Also, why did the whole entire audience have lobster claws but Shaggy, who played Sebastian, didn’t? Couldn’t someone let him borrow theirs?

So they gave Queen a WHOLE 8 Tentacles for Ursula, but couldn’t send Shaggy out with at least 2 lobster claws 🤦🏾‍♀️😭😭 #LittleMermaidLive

This is the only explanation for Sebastian not wearing a crab costume 😂

Shaggy: “I ain’t wearing that shit” #TheLittleMermaidLive pic.twitter.com/9FOlzrw5tf

No one can explain what was going on with Flounder.

Somehow the show forgot the premise of the whole movie and had Ariel singing with Prince Eric after (!!!) she traded her voice for legs.

how ariel and prince eric gotta duet AND SHE DON’T HAVE NO VOICE?!?!? #TheLittleMermaidLive pic.twitter.com/9bT0u9kJl6

John Stamos flubbed Prince Eric’s name and called him Prince Albert.

Did… did John Stamos think his mic was off? Who dafuq is Prince Albert? #LittleMermaidLive pic.twitter.com/eFozShYTUO

And a lot of people poked fun at when Auli’i tried to hit the last high note.

Ariel does NOT have the register to go that high. Disney tried it. #LittleMermaidLive pic.twitter.com/wI3VhHpEhA

In her defense, that sh*t isn’t easy and not many people can even get close to her range! So!

In summation, the show was just a whole bunch of cringe.
