Jennifer Lopez 'Freaked Out' After Her Massive Singing Malfunction!

An eyewitness tells us Jennifer Lopez was upset backstage after her musical malfunction at Wango Tango in LA this weekend!

Jennifer Lopez took the stage at the Wango Tango concert in LA on Saturday and was performing “On the Floor” when all of her sound and music was shut off. The singer handled it like a pro, continuing her performance without sound and then starting from the top with Pitbull alongside her. She semi-jokingly told the audience “Somebody’s getting fired tonight!” and an eyewitness tells us she “really laid into people” as soon as she went backstage!

“As soon as Jennifer came backstage she freaked out and ripped a few people a new one. She was epically pissed and didn’t hide it from those behind the scenes. She was quickly escorted to her dressing room so the cameras they had back there didn’t catch anything,” revealed our insider.

The singer, who was initially booed but then met with a round of applause for how she handled the gaffe, had a few friends joining her to calm her down. “Ryan Seacrest and Pitbull joined her in her dressing room to see how she was doing, and after she cooled down she left. Those of us who witnessed her diva moment were not surprised and to be honest, we expected it after what happened with the sound,” our source tells us.

It’s understandable that Jennifer would be upset after such a massive mistake, but what do you guys think of her reaction? Sound off below!

I don’t blame her for reacting that way. Someone should be fired for such mistake at a big function like that. Jennifer was ready for her performance, and the sound technician wasn’t. Also, Jennifer can sing and does have a nice voice despite what some say. She’s multi-talented.

Jennifer Lopez is very beautiful and a good “performer” but she cannon sing. She has no range and her voice is very nasal. It is unfortunate that so many singers now a days are not talented, but have been marketed to whatever group their handlers think they will appeal to. Everyone made fun of Rebecca Black for not being able to sing and for the auto tuning but anyone who does not think that Jennifer Lopez’s voice is not auto tuned to the hilt is very naive.

And anyone who thinks she can’t sing is an idiot! She’s no Mariah or Whitney but she can sing. I have heard her live and right in front of me when I auditioned for her, so stop trashing her like you’ve been in the studio and heard her sing. She’s a triple threat!Deal with it!

@Marilyn I COULDN’T AGREE With you MORE!!!! Jealousy is a VERY UGLY thing!!! The definition of Jealousy is resentment against a person enjoying success or advantage, etc., or against another’s success or advantage itself. ~ Makes PERFECT sense to me.
