Jessica Mauboy Disappears Moments Before Singing The National Anthem At Emirates Melbourne Cup
We hope she's okay
Fans are extremely worried about Jessica Mauboy!
This comes after she pulled out of singing the national anthem at yesterday’s Emirates Melbourne Cup last minute.
It seems out of character for Jess, especially since she was spotted ready to go backstage for the performance.
The announcers had already introduced her as the singer performing Advance Australia Fair.
Jess then pulled out as she was about to go on stage and she went missing from the event.
This left Jess’ backup singer, Nadia Aya to take the stage.. only giving her 30 seconds to warm up to perform in front of millions.
Victorian Racing Club President Simon Lowe released a statement on Tuesday afternoon saying;
"We were very disappointed that Jessica Mauboy was on course, and didn't perform today”
"We were grateful that Nadia Aya could perform the national anthem ahead of the Emirates Melbourne Cup."
There have been a number of rumours as to why Jess pulled out, one of them being over clothing issues and lack of preparation.
Her team are yet to comment.
She last performed on Monday afternoon on Hamish and Andy for the race that slows down the nation.
Jess hasn’t posted on social media since.
We really hope she’s okay!
