On Saturday night at the NRJ Music Awards in Cannes, Katy Perry did a stunning rendition of “Roar.” Haha, just kidding. It was terrible. The track she was lip-syncing to malfunctioned leaving her out of sync with the music.

It was so bad that the host eventually shook his head and stopped her mid-performance and asked if she wanted to start over again. She did and actually sang live this time, but still used a backing track. I give the recovery a 6/10. Had there been more cleavage, I would have given it a 8/10. It’s the little things.

Update: NRJ has issued an apology to Katy Perry saying it was all their fault.¬†“Katy Perry was singing live at the NRJ Awards Saturday night in Cannes, but regrettably the wrong mix has been played accidentally which over-rode Katy’s live vocal feed on-air at the beginning of her performance of ‘Roar.’ TF1 & NRJ would like to apologize to NRJ double award winner Katy Perry for this technical problem beyond our control.”
