Not everyone was feeling Ariana Grande’s performance at the the iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles on Thursday. Cameras caught a few famous audience members seeming less than totally inspired by Grande’s performance as she belted out “The Way” and “Problem” while dancing on stage. Rihanna was seen laughing hysterically during the performance (below), while country stars Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton looked perplexed as they watched Grande.

Bryan was so amused by the reaction to his expression, he later tweeted, “Wow me concentrating doesn’t look good.” Both he and Shelton also changed the headers of their Twitter accounts to a screen shot of the moment (below). What do you think of their reactions?
