A temporary brain freeze can happen to the best of us. But unfortunately these artists were on the stage performing when they just couldn’t remember the words to their songs.

Chaka Khan

Legendary singer Chaka Khan was tapped to perform on the Wendy Williams’ show for the gossip queen’s 50th birthday and took to the stage to sing one of her greatest hits, “Every Woman.” But it must’ve been a long time since she sang that song because Khan forgot some of the lyrics to the words and chose to scat to cover her momentary memory loss. When she returned to perform “Ain’t Nobody” Khan did much better and remembered all of the words.
