Robbie Williams updated fans on his official web site on Monday (October 12) after his performance on ‘The X Factor’. The former Take That singer writes:
So I’m stood behind the Jumbo screen waiting to go and peacock… Dermot does a lovely introduction “Blah,blah,blah.. lovely stuff and niceties… Ladies and gentlemen Robbie Williams!”
At this point in the rehearsals the music starts… The doors open…. BUT LIVE…. The music starts… The Doors don’t open.. So we’re a few seconds in And the doors remain closed a few more seconds and they’re still closed…
Now I don’t know if you’ve ever had 10 million (plus) people ready to judge you on your first performance back in 3 years… But let me tell you, if the door between you and them isn’t opening that’s enough to throw you right off your stride.. I don’t know if you saw but I had to wedge it open myself… That wasn’t part of the show.. That was pure brute strength and now heavy nerves shifting something that I probably wouldn’t be able to move in the cold light of day…
