“george kittle performed better than anything the grammy’s produced sunday night. #NFLHonors,” a Twitter user said.
“Put George Kittle as the half time show,” another one added.
“George Kittle gotta be the funniest guy in sports 😂😂,” a third one tweeted.

The NFL honors 2023 saw Kelly Clarkson hosting the ceremony, but George Kittle and Cam Jordan stole the spotlight from her with their singing. The tight end, in an ill-advised bit, sang a Karaoke version of Clarkson’s My Life Would Suck Without U.
Around 40 minutes into the award ceremony, while Kittle was surrounded by some teammates like Brock Purdy and Christian McCaffrey, the 49ers tight end stood up in the middle of Symphony Hall and took the mic. It was all downhill from there.

The spoof on Clarkson’s hit song made light of how terribly the 49ers’ season came to a close a week ago in a loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game. The reaction might be the best part of the video, especially Nick Bosa’s brother, Joey Bosa.
“Yes, our season’s over, and yes, that last game blew, but Brock [Purdy], you should still feel proud, we wouldn’t be there without you,” Kittle sang. “Christian McCaffrey, dude can run, catch and pass, but I prefer Nick Bosa throwing [Dak] Prescott on his a–.”

The audience enjoyed laughing at Kittle’s rendition. He earned a large round of applause as well after the song. The lyrics surely summed up the 49ers’ season, which ended in the NFC championship after the team lost to the Eagles following QB Brock Purdy’s early injury.
