Everyone gets a bit nervous. Especially when they’re introducing a band that the producers have just compared to, you know, the Beatles. That alone would explain why Kendall Jenner had a really hard time reading cue cards during Sunday night’s 2014 Billboard Music Awards when trying to intro 5 Seconds of Summer.
In the space-out seen ’round the globe, the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star lost her train of thought when introducing the Australian pop-rockers saying, “And now we welcome… One,” and then there was a painfully awkward pause, a full-body front-bend and the (semi) explanation, “You guys, I am the worst reader.”
Just hours after the show, Jenner gave a most rational explanation for her flub. It’s not that she can’t read, you see, it’s that she forgot to wear her contacts! You know, to her first big gig where she was going to have to read from cue cards.
