Ashlee Simpson was at the centre of another live show controversy last night (04JAN05) when her half-time performance at the college football ORANGE BOWL in Miami, Florida, was booed.

The sister of pop star Jessica Simpson was outed as a lipsyncher during an embarrassing performance on Saturday Night Live back in October (04), and she was left red-faced again during an awful live show last night.

Amid technical problems that saw fellow half-time show performers KELLY CLARKSON and TRACE ADKINS struggle to hear themselves, Ashlee howled her way through hit single LA LA, hitting bad note after bad note.

And fans of Orange Bowl finalists UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA and OKLAHOMA weren't shy about voicing their disapproval - and booed her loudly.

The censors also clamped down on the singer, insisting she remove a sexually-charged "French maid" line in the song and replace it with "lemonade".
