Looks like someone didn’t like what she was hearing…namely, herself. Susan Boyle gave up on a live performance of “O Holy Night” on the View today, waving for the music to be stop right before the song reached its memorable high notes. As the facial expression above suggests, she had already cracked a note or two before abandoning the song entirely. That didn’t stop Sherri Shepherd from declaring the abbreviated performance “beautiful” and “amazing” as she came onstage to support the embarrassed singer. “There is something of an angel that comes out of your mouth,” continued the oblivious host. “This amazingly pure sound.” Things not to say when a singer’s just bombed on live TV for $400, Alex.
Thankfully, Susan should be able to rest her voice and lose the “frog in her throat” Whoopi blamed for the misfire (yes, Whoopi was actually paying attention). Oh wait, no she can’t—TMZ reports that Susan will reshoot the performance for the West Coast airing and she’s scheduled to take part in the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting tonight. Will she still make it out or is this frog going to pull a Scrooge on her?
See the oh-so-awkward moment after the jump.
