You won’t see Jessica Simpson apologize to Dolly Parton after she thought she butchered the song “9 to 5” at the Kennedy Center Honors.
Jessica had come out to perform the song as a tribute to Parton, but she abruptly finished the song, uttering the words “Dolly, that made me so nervous” at the end. She quickly exited to the stage to no applause.
Later as all the singers in the Parton tribute returned to the stage, Jessica could be seen in tears.
But Jessica was so upset she asked if she could sing the song again.
She did after the gala was over — and that’s the version that’ll be included in the TV version of the ceremony airing on CBS December 26th.
