Hey, you showed up late! Who do you think you are - Lauryn Hill!
Cee Lo Green was one of the big acts everyone was waiting to see on Coachella's opening day Friday, but his set got cut to only 20 minutes after he arrived late to the gig.
Upon arrival, Cee Lo implored the audience to "stick with him" and apologized for the delay. He insisted that his flight had just landed and that the promoters should have given him a "better slot," but then got busy playing music for the anxious crowd to raise their spirits.
He managed to make it through five songs, including his signature hits Crazy and F*ck You, but just as he was going into a cover of Journey's Don't Stop Believing, the sound was cut. At first, people thought it was a technical glitch, but then Cee Lo was seen shaking his head in anger and rushing off the stage. His band, who were still playing despite the abrupt end, followed suit.
If the crowd was angry at him before, we imagine they were practically LIVID at the promoters after. We certainly think it was pretty rude of them to cut him off the way he did. They could've at least let him finish the song! Lame!
