It's safe to say live TV appearances are not Eminem's least when it comes to football halftime shows.

The Detroit native popped up last night during ESPN's Michigan-Notre Dame halftime show to give a sneak preview of his new music video for "Berzerk"…and went a little berserk himself. 

Kicking off the interview with a blank stare for about 30 seconds, Eminem said "sorry, live TV freaks me out a little bit," when he was able to snap out of his trance and realize he had been asked a question.

In spite of Eminem's freak-out, sports anchors Kerk Herbstreit and Brent Musburger pressed on with the awkward interview, trying to get the rapper to talk about his video and upcoming album The Marshall Mathers LP 2.

"What are you most excited about with this new album?," Herbstreit asked.

"Nothing," Eminem said with a blank stare, quickly adding, "no, it'll be out November 5th. I'll probably be most excited to just be done with it." 

The "Survival" rapper got a little more animated when he was asked about the upcoming Detroit Lions game, calling himself "a die-hard fan," but his blank stare soon came back after he told Musberger he'd put him on his all-star announcer team.

"You're a legend," Eminem said, to which Musberger replied, "You my friend, are the legend."

"I'm really uncomfortable right now," Eminem said in response.  

And it showed.
