ROBBIE WILLIAMS narrowly missed enduring another disastrous performance on U.K. talent show THE X FACTOR - after he started singing too early.
The British superstar took to the stage of the hugely popular singing contest on Saturday night (12Dec09) to join finalist Olly Murs for a duet of his hit song Angels.
Wannabe pop star Murs sang the opening of the track and introduced his idol to the crowd as the singer emerged from the back of the stage.
But Williams was too eager to begin his part in the rendition, and began to sing his words before the music for the second verse had kicked-in.
The embarrassed star shrugged off the cringeworthy mistake by laughing and shaking hands with Murs, who prompted the Angels hitmaker of his place in the track.
The mishap mirrors his live U.K. comeback on the show in October (09) - when he appeared sweating and nervous after a jammed stage door prevented him from getting out to his audience.
Williams made up for his poor start by thrilling fans with a rousing rendition of his new track You Know Me later on in the show. via WENN
