Jessica Mauboy Makes Up For Missing Melbourne Cup National A

We all remember last month when Jess Mauboy made headlines when she missed her National Anthem performance at the Melbourne Cup.

The drama came down to a wardrobe malfunction, with Mauboy flustered and with minimal time to prepare to go on stage after her stylists decided to change her out of Prada booties, because they weren’t sold at Myer - who were sponsoring the event.

Now, with a fleet of P&O Cruise Ships in Sydney Harbour, Jess had another opportunity to perform the national anthem - but that was almost taken from her, too.

Apparently as she was about to take the stage, managers of the event decided to skip the song because of the live TODAY show cross.

However, after the cross was finished, Jess insisted she get back up on stage and do the anthem.

She was NOT leaving without singing it again!
