Pop star Ashlee Simpson had something of a mic malfunction during "Saturday Night Live" last night. A tape of her singing accidentally went off, when her mouth was nowhere near the microphone, as she was about to sing to a live national audience.
Simpson sang one song earlier without incident. Then, as the she was about to sing during a second segment, a recording of her singing the first song came on. Simpson stopped, danced a nervous jig, and then walked off, the band still playing.
At the end of the show Simpson blamed her band for playing the wrong song and apologized. Her record company blamed a computer error for the snafu.
