Corey Feldman sang his new song “Go 4 It” on NBC’s “Today” show Friday morning, and his performance was, uh, well, let’s just let Twitter do the judging for us, since his name quickly started trending after the segment aired.

Is Corey Feldman the long lost love child of Charlie Sheen & Michael Jackson? OMG that was bad!!!— Awake (@AwakeInFla)September 16, 2016
I’m usually against cyber bullying but Corey Feldman is just asking for it.— Theresa (@15yearswiser)September 16, 2016
I truly feel bad for Corey Feldman. At first I just thought he was a mediocre actor, then I watched the Today Show.— Bill Mitchell (@askbillmitchell)September 16, 2016
Feldman, famous for roles in “The Goonies,” “Stand by Me” and “Gremlins,” appeared on “Today” to promote his new album, “Angelic 2 the Core,” with “Corey’s Angels” in tow, providing the music for Feldman to sing and dance to. The record is dedicated to Michael Jackson, who seems to have inspired Feldman’s choreography, too.
“It’s kind of a similar stye of dance, because we grew up dancing together. And he was my idol, obviously,” Feldman said before dancing his way to the mic. His moves, however, didn’t go over so well with viewers.

I’m not psychologically prepared to deal with a Michael Jackson impersonation by Corey Feldman circa 2016, no thanx.— Diana Death (@TheeDianaDeath)September 16, 2016
But to be fair, not everyone took to Twitter to bash the performance — a number of people were just happy to see Feldman was still alive.

I have to give kudos to the EP @todayshow…they knew Corey Feldman would be terrible but perfect for their web clicks.— Spencer Graves (@SpencerGraves)September 16, 2016
Corey Feldman just performed on the Today Show. If only MNight Shyamalan could come up with a new movie twist as good as 2016.— Laurie Crosswell (@lauriecrosswell)September 16, 2016
I don’t know, I sort of like this possessed-Grim-Reaper-marionette phase of Corey Feldman’s career.— Jenny Trout (@Jenny_Trout)September 16, 2016
I panicked when I saw Corey Feldman trending, because losing him this year is not an option, universe.— Steph (@WriteOnSteph)September 16, 2016
