Iggy Azalea Dancing With the Stars Performance: What Went Wrong?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Rising rapper Iggy Azalea graced the Dancing With the Stars results show Tuesday, but her performance was immediately marred by a technical mishap.

Dressed in retro prom queen regalia and flanked by DWTS dancers, Azalea, 23, descended the steps but struggled to rap in sync with the backing track.

"I'm so sorry ... but there's something wrong with my earphone!" Iggy said, uncomfortably going silent for several seconds as she continued her descent:

Thankfully, Azalea (Amethyst Amelia Kelly) eventually recovered and salvaged the rendition of her hit song "Fancy" with singer-producer Charli XCX.

Still, it made for quite awkward moment, one made even more so by the fact that she did not join in Ariana Grande's performance of "Problem" later on.

She acknowledged the eff-up via Twitter later that night, apologizing to fans.

"I am so sorry guys! My in ears messed up and I couldn’t hear the track."

"The dramas of live TV," she added. "S--t happens. Still really enjoyed it."
