Poor Mary J. Blige couldn’t remember all of her favorite things!
The R&B legend was performing live at The Grove in El Lay during their annual Hollywood Holidays concert. But it took her THREE tries to get through the song My Favorite Things before she finally got all of the lyrics right!
As far as Christmas carols go though, that one is a TOTAL tongue twister so we can see why she’d have some trouble!
You can see in the video above that Mary did have a teleprompter scrolling for her to follow along with, but she still just couldn’t keep up with the song’s fast tempo.
Third time was a charm though and the fans in the crowd kept cheering her on, no matter how many attempts it took to get it right!
We know for sure that one of our favorite things is Mary’s voice!
Make sure you practice, practice, PRACTICE this tune, Carrie Underwood! She’ll be singing it live as well during NBC’s Sound of Music special next month!
