Simpson started off her set by singing a cover of Nancy Sinatra's These Boots Are Made For Walking, and then performed Willie Nelson and Shania Twain covers as well as her latest single, Come On Over.

Though Simpson received cheers from some fans in the crowd, numerous concert-goers had less positive things to say about the singer. One audience member said, "I just don't hear the country in her; I don't hear the twang. She's not good enough to be here." Another called her performance "crap," and added, "She doesn't belong here."

According to Fox News, Simpson picked up on the crowd's dislike, telling them, "I don't know what your perception is of Jessica Simpson or what tabloid you buy, but I just want you to know that I'm just a girl from Texas; I'm just like you. I'm doing what I love and dating a boy."
