People have rushed to the defence of Blondie lead singer Debbie Harry after some criticised her voice during their Glasto set today.
The American rock band - which skyrocketed to fame in the 70s - took to the Pyramid stage today (25 June) to perform some of their smash hits including 'Atomic', 'Rapture' and 'The Tide Is High'.
But some were left unimpressed, dubbing it a 'painful' watch and slamming Harry's - who's now 77 - singing voice.
"Blondie. This is actually painful," slammed one viewer.
"Shouldn’t someone tell her. You know…….Give it up!!!" wrote another.
Meanwhile, a third said: "Not gonna lie, Blondie sound awful on iPlayer right now."
Though many came to the defence of the star, arguing she is the 'epitome of cool' and is 'rocking' the stage.
"Debbie Harry is the epitome of cool & is absolutely rocking the pyramid stage at #Glastonbury. Before you criticise her voice remember that she is almost 78," one fan wrote. "I always wanted to be her when I grew up; still do!"
"I can 100% guarantee that all the people slagging #Blondie off will, at the age of 77, be stinking of p*ss and shouting at clouds. Not on the main stage at Glastonbury. #Glastonbury2023," defended another.
"Blondie absolutely smashing it! Debbie Harry is 78 next week and she’s still got it! ," penned a third.
The band rose to fame out of New York City during the mid-70s underground new wave scene, gaining notoriety for hits such as 'Heart of Glass', 'Call Me' and 'One Way Or Another'.
Many will remember Miley Cyrus' cover of the band's iconic hit 'Heart of Glass', which attracted a whole new generation of fans.
The band split after the release of their sixth studio album The Hunter in 1982, but came back together in 1997, going on to release their number-one single 'Maria' two years later.
Glastonbury is still in full force, with Lil Nas X and Elton John still set to grace the Pyramid stage later tonight on what is the final full day of the infamous festival.
Safe to say, it's been jam-packed with drama and headline-makers, from Lana Del Rey getting her mic cut off after being late to her set, to Lewis Capaldi having to end his set early as he 'struggled' to finish his song and Lizzo's iconic performance.
