‘It Was a Really Traumatic Moment’ Nick Jonas’ onstage blunder at the 2016 Academy of Country Music Awards led him to therapy. At the music ceremony, the “Jealous” singer performed “Peter Pan” with country-pop star Kelsea Ballerini. Jonas’ guitar solo went from “fine” to “tragic” after he went off-key.
“As I walked towards her, I just went completely blank, and I hit a wrong note and blacked out basically and clocked that it was wrong, and I couldn’t stop,” the 30-year-old singer recalled during a recent episode of Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast. “In retrospect, I can kind of laugh about how big I thought it was. But it did travel more than I wish it would have, and it did cause me to go to therapy,” he said of the “really tragic guitar solo debacle.” Have you ever bombed an important moment? Share your story.
