Those Simpson girls and there on-stage SNAFUs... Last night at the Kennedy Centre Honors, Jessica Simpson ran off stage in tears during a performane in tribute to Dolly Parton. Yes, just like little sister Ashlee Simpson did on Saturday Night Live, Jessica Simpson panicked, and ran, reports CityNews.

Singer-actress Jessica Simpson ended up in tears Sunday night after her performance during the Kennedy Center Honors appeared to go awry.

Simpson was on stage singing Nine to Five as part of a tribute to honouree Dolly Parton when she apparently stopped singing, uttered the words "so nervous" and exited the stage.

The stunned audience responded with silence. When the Dukes of Hazzard star and others participating in the tribute returned to the stage, it appeared the she was crying.

Thankfully, for Jessica, there wasn't any pre-recorded vocals still playing after she ran off the stage, but I doubt that will mitigate any of the shame. At least Ashlee can finally say that Jessica is copying her. I bet Ashlee is loving this. I know I am.
