Selena Gomez might have been singing live during the 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, but it doesn’t look like too many people were watching her.

According to The Wrap, ratings for the show — which featured musical performances from Gomez, The Weeknd, and Ellie Goulding — plunged a hefty 32% from last year’s show, receiving only 6.6 million viewers. This marks the fashion show’s worst ratings in its history, but shouldn’t come as a total surprise to anyone who pays attention to Nielsen ratings.

The Inquistr reports that the show has been on a steady decline over the past few years. Last year’s airing — which featured performances from Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran and Ariana Grande — saw 9.1 million total viewers, which was slightly less than 2013’s count at 9.71 million viewers.

Aside from the high-profile musical performances, both Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid were meant to be big draws this year as the two made their catwalk debuts as VS Angels, but it wasn’t enough to lock in a significant amount of viewers.

Rihanna’s abrupt cancelation might have contributed to the decline in viewership, as she pulled out of the show last minute in a reported attempt to finish her long-awaited eighth studio album Anti. Ellie Goulding wound up filing in for her last minute, though there’s still no word as to whether Anti will ever actually see the light of day.
