Iggy Azalea reportedly had a mishap during a recent concert with Jennifer Lopez where the Australian rapper and pop star were performing their duet, “Acting Like That,” in Chicago.
Refinery 29 reports that Azalea was seen dancing on stage and grooving to J. Lo’s portion of the song, however, when it came time to rap her portion of the verse, she just kept on dancing.

Azalea reportedly didn’t even bother to put her microphone up to her mouth to pretend to rap her portion of the song, rather, just allowing her vocals to play through the sound system. Fans were quick to take to the YouTube video, which shows evidence of the mishap, to claim that Azalea’s microphone wasn’t even on. Azalea later confirmed those suspicions herself via Twitter.
Some commenters had other feelings regarding the performance, noting that it would’ve been better if Azalea would’ve at least attempted to follow her portion of the rap. After the song ends, Lopez jokingly brushed off Azalea’s lack of participation with, “You know what? If you want to hear her rap, you’re gonna have to buy the album.”
Interestingly enough, nobody is commenting on the possibility of Lopez’s lip-synching or use of a backing track, giving that the same track was playing the entire time.
Despite the mishap, both girls look gorgeous during their performance. Perhaps Azalea’s run-ins with technical difficulties will halt soon?
