Hello Cleveland!: Ashlee Simpson Booed at Orange Bowl, 72 000 Ask Her to Keep Lip Syncing
Poor Miss Simpson. After years of being stuck in the buxom shadow of big sis Jessica, Ashlee finally jumped into the pop music spotlight when she released her debut album in 2004. Later that year she was involved in one of the biggest live television boo-boos of all time when she was busted lip syncing on Saturday Night Live. The press ripped her a new one, musicians mocked her, and she became a walking punchline. Which brings us to today's Hello Cleveland!, where Ashlee tries to redeem herself and prove she can belt it out with the best of them by singing live at the 2005 Orange Bowl halftime show. Funny thing-turned out there was a reason she always lip synced before this show-she can't hold a bloody note. You'll see what I mean as you watch the clip, which ends with a stadium full of 72 000 people (and no doubt the millions watching from home) booing Simpson off the stage.
