Ellie Goulding performed the halftime show of the Buffalo Bills and Dallas Cowboys game on Thanksgiving Day and the one thing people can't stop talking about is her hat – which people are saying resembles a lampshade.

The special concert took place on Thursday afternoon at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Ellie was joined on stage by the Cowboys' cheerleaders for the performance. Ellie almost didn't perform the halftime show after finding out that the Salvation Army, an organization being supported by the halftime show, is not considered an LGBTQ-friendly charity.

But the show went on as planned, and fans had thoughts, mostly about the singer's headgear. Goulding topped a black and white ensemble with a hat that social media users declared resembled lampshade. The white hat seemed to be modeled in a cowboy style, and had an edge rimmed with what appeared to be diamonds or rhinestones in a dripping fashion, covering her eyes.

"Ellie Goulding coming out for the halftime show like...." wrote one user, attaching a photo of Patrick Star, from the TV series SpongeBob SquarePants, with a lampshade on his head.

"Why is Ellie Goulding doing the half time show in Dallas and why is she doing Sia cosplay," said someone else, referencing Sia's iconic black-and-white wig. And the jokes just went on.

The Thanksgiving halftime show is a Cowboys tradition, kicking off the Salvation Army''s Red Kettle Campaign.
