NO, NO... IT WAS THE STOMACH ACID'S FAULT: Oddly, while Ashlee seemed to think it was all the fault of her band for playing the "wrong" song, her Dad and manager Joe has fingered, uh, acid reflux disease as being the culprit for the great Saturday Night Live foul-up:

"Just like any artist in America, she has a backing track that she pushes so you don't have to hear her croak through a song on national television," Joe Simpson told Ryan Seacrest on Los Angeles radio station KIIS-FM. "No one wants to hear that."

"A backing track she pushes" means, we think, "her part recorded on a tape for her to open and close her mouth to"; Joe suggests that Ashlee was using the tape because her queasy stomach had made her hoarse - although we're a little bit confused about what the "just like any artist in America" bit means in such a context.

Meanwhile, Ashlee's been suggesting that, you know, everyone was lost:

She told "TRL" that she and her band didn't know what to do. "I think all of us went into a state of shock," she said.

Erm... no, Ashley, your band didn't "go into a state of shock", they just moved into a holding pattern waiting for you to lead them in the next direction. There was only one bunny in the headlights, and that was the one doing the strange hopping before wandering off the stage leaving them to it.

Oddly, Joe claims this is the only time ever Ashlee has used tapes - and yet, if you re-read his quote above, it sounds like it's a regular thing.
