Although many fans in London said they were “jumping for joy” during Shania’s performance.

The country singer, who performed as a headliner despite her illness, sparked controversy online for her singing performance on Worthy Farm.

Wearing a red Vivienne Westwood jacket with sparkly white boots, the singer told the crowd she was going to hold back the “snorting” to headline.

She said, “I have a little cold, but that doesn’t matter, it’s just a little sniffle.”

As she turned away from the audience to blow her nose during the performance, she added, “I just want to tell you a little bit about what this means to me. I’ve been coming to concerts here for many, many years and seeing all the legends play on this stage.”

“I’ve played this stage before, it’s been a while… here I am again and I can’t thank you enough, you’re so amazing, thank you. I’m really happy right now. London, thank you for having me back,” she added.
