Singer Ashlee Simpson gets another chance to sing live Ã¢â‚¬” perhaps Ã¢â‚¬” on national television Monday after walking off “Saturday Night Live” in a does-she-or-doesn’t-she lip-synch moment.
Simpson is scheduled to perform in Las Vegas for NBC’s “Radio Music Awards,” scheduled to be televised at 9 p.m. ET.
The 19-year-old was the talk of the Internet after Saturday’s show.
Her record company blamed a computer glitch and she blamed her band, which cut off her planned performance of the song “Autobiography” on the network comedy show.
Simpson had performed her hit single “Pieces of Me” without incident earlier in the show. When she came back a second time, her band started playing and the first lines of her singing “Pieces of Me” could be heard again.
She was holding her microphone at her waist at the time. Simpson looked momentarily confused as the band plowed ahead with the song and the vocal was quickly silenced.
Simpson made some exaggerated hopping dance moves, then walked off the stage 35 seconds into the performance. NBC quickly cut to a commercial.
