In 2004, Singer Ashlee Simpsonʹs “extra help” may have been exposed when a “Saturday Night Live” audience heard her voice — singing the wrong song — while she held a microphone at her waist. Her record company blamed a computer glitch and she blamed her band for the incident, 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 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. “What can I say?” guest host Jude Law said with Simpson standing next to him at the end of the show. “Live TV.” “Exactly,” Simpson said. “I feel so bad. My band started playing the wrong song. I didnʹt know what to do so I thought Iʹd do a hoe-down.”
