Well, I missed out on the greatest thing EVER: Ashlee Simpson's lip synching machine went totally haywire during her "Saturday Night Live" performance and it was so bad that she apparently did some weird jig and then LEFT THE STAGE!!! Here's more, courtesy of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune:

"Singer Ashlee Simpson's "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 Sunday morning's incident, which cut off her planned performance of the song "Autobiography."

She had performed her hit single "Pieces of Me" without incident earlier on the network comedy 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.

Simpson made some exaggerated dance moves, then walked off the stage 35 seconds into the performance. NBC quickly cut to a commercial."

Hee hee, ha ha! AWESOME. Sadly, this was probably the funniest thing that will happen on "SNL" all season. I like that she blamed the band. I bet they LOVE her for that. Man, I wish I had seen this. It's just like that scene from the made-for-tv movie "Dead Man's Curve: The Jan and Dean Story," where Dean has to lip-synch, because he's like, brain damaged from a car accident, and then his tape machine screws up and the audience--who are supposed to be his fans--BOO him and he has to tell them the truth and you could hear a pin drop, it was sooooooo dramatic. Or like the Milli Vanilli thing. Take your pick.

I wonder if Jessica is really sad for her sister or if she is secretly THRILLED. I'm pretty sure I already know the answer...
