Remember a few weeks back when Jessica Simpson pulled an Ashlee at the taping of the Kennedy Center Honors? She flubbed the lyrics to "9 to 5" in a tribute to Dolly Parton, abruptly ended the song and left the stage -- in front of a bunch of Hollywood A-listers and the Washington bigwigs.

After the audience left, Jessica got to perform the song again for the show, but she obviously didn't like her performance:

But after Simpson saw a tape, she requested the second attempt be pulled from the show, which airs Dec. 26 on CBS. "She really wasn't happy with her performance and she did want it to be perfect for Dolly, who she idolizes," said Cindi Berger, a spokeswoman for Simpson.

Well, Jessica, look on the bright side. At least you didn't do Ashlee's SNL hoedown when exiting stage right.
