Ashlee Simpson Reflects On Embarrassing 2004 ‘SNL’ Performance

Back when Ashlee Simpson performed on ‘SNL’ in 2004, she got caught red-handed for lip-syncing after her band started playing the wrong song.

Who can forget the infamous 2004 Ashlee Simpson Saturday Night Live performance?

In case you forgot, Simpson did an awkward “hoedown” off stage after she was caught lip-syncing, which she later blamed on acid reflux.

The 33-year-old took a step away from the spotlight after the whole debacle, but now she’s making a comeback. She and her husband, Evan Ross, are working on musical projects together. They’re also the subject of a new E! docu-series called ASHLEE+EVAN.

Simpson has certainly moved on from the SNL incident. She admits that she learned a lot from the experience.

“It’s definitely not difficult to talk about… that was a very long time ago,” she told E! News. “It’s something that happened to me and things in life happen to you and they make you stronger and they make you a better performer, a better person. I think things like that build your character and your strength and it’s how you handle them.”
