Viewers won’t get to see Jessica Simpson’s erroneous performance during a tribute to Dolly Parton.
Simspon messed up Parton’s classic 9 to 5 despite the help of cue cards waving in front of her face.
She became noticeably distraught when she messed up a line ending the song saying, “Dolly, you make me so nervous. I can’t even sing the words right.”
Simpson’s rep Cindi Berger explained she put too much pressure on herself. “She wanted the song to be perfect and she was upset with herself when it wasn’t.”
The pop princess was at The Kennedy Centre paying homage to Dolly Parton, one of five honorees. Others included filmmaker Steven Spielberg, Motown great Smokey Robinson, composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and conductor Zubin Mehta.
Simpson got a second go after asking organizers if she could sing the song again.
The error-less performance can be seen Dec. 26 on CBS.
