Justice have reflected on the “very embarrassing” moment that they serenaded Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis with one of his own songs.The French duo – comprised of Xavier de Rosnay and Gaspard Augé – looked back at the moment during a new interview with NME for the In Conversation series, in celebration of their new album ‘Hyperdrama’.During the discussion, the pair were asked about their tour documentary Across the Universe, which they shared back in 2008. The electronic group then went on to reveal that they haven’t considered watching the film recently – particularly because of one “embarrassing” moment that caught fans’ attention.“I haven’t seen it since it was released, actually,” de Rosnay said, with his bandmate going on to confirm that he had “seen a bit here and there” since its release 15 years ago.Going on to recall which aspect of the project he keeps seeing, de Rosnay explained: “The bit [that keeps] resurfacing is where I sing ‘Under The Bridge’ to Anthony Kiedis’s face, which was very embarrassing even to do, you know what I mean?He continued, explaining how the awkward moment arose: “Because this documentary was shot in a very short amount of time, we had to have the maximum amount of footage and just, like, make things happen otherwise there would be nothing happening.

Pet Shop Boys’ Neil Tennant has said that the duo’s performance at Glastonbury in 2022 was the “worst moment” of his life.The electronic duo’s performance on The Other Stage on the Sunday of the festival was marred by technical difficulties which saw Tennant have to perform solo for six songs.Although they also delighted fans by bringing out Olly Alexander to perform ‘It’s A Sin’, Tennant has now reflected on how difficult that moment was in a new interview.“In our show there’s a screen and the screen goes up briefly, Chris and I appear and walk forward,” he told BBC Breakfast. “Glastonbury of course is live on television, we were headlining the Other Stage on the Sunday night, there’s 70,000 people there.“And the screen rose by about 10 inches and stopped and we just looked at each other and we couldn’t talk because you have the music in your headphones then.“So we both made a dash for it and ran around the front, Chris couldn’t get to his front keyboard in time so he went to a second keyboard positioned at the back and suddenly I run around and I think “I’m here by myself on live on television”.’He continued: “I didn’t know what had gone wrong, no one tells you and I had to do the first six songs by myself with an empty keyboard next to me.”“There’s was a real adrenaline rush off that.
