‘Of all the ways to perform the national anthem…’ another said. 

‘Conrad Sewell butchering the national anthem,’ added a third. 

The singer was also slammed for his performance at the Brownlow Medal ceremony on Monday night.

Earlier in the Brownlow broadcast, Conrad sang Healing Hands over a montage of highlights from the most recent AFL season, which some viewers thought was ‘weird’. 

Conrad rose to fame in 2014 when he partnered up with Norwegian DJ Kygo for his viral hit Firestone, which has 663 million YouTube views.
