Not really. Granted, I've missed a few episodes, but I believe she was just booked as a "pre-opener," not even an opening act. Promoters will often book up-and-comings as pre-openers to start getting them a little exposure. Most of the time, from what I've seen, audiences barely pay these pre-openers any attention. They usually take the stage with very little or no introduction, play a song or two (often acoustic, because they aren't given any money to tour with a band, and often with only "house lights" on), and leave again with a break before the actual opening act. It's a rather thankless role in a tour.
It does seem very unlikely that a pre-opener would get booed, though... it's more likely that they would simply be completely ignored.
