Live performances aren’t always without their problems.

And it was the Pussycat Dolls who were the latest the fall foul to a technical glitch as they geared up to perform on The One Show.

The five-piece girl group were on the BBC chat show to promote their brand new single, React, after a decade away.

There was plenty of excitement at The One Show studio as presenter Matt Baker introduced the band.

But things didn’t get off to the best start.

Nicole Sherzinger and her band mates Kimberly Wyatt, Ashley Roberts, Jessica Sutta and Carmit Bachar were standing with their backs to the camera in their performance starting position when the music began.

Only for them to carrying on standing their for at least 30 seconds without moving an inch.

The music then cut and Matt once again introduced the group shouting: “It’s the Pussycat Dolls,” as attempt number two began.

But this left a lot of BBC viewers questioning the Don’t Cha hit makers and it was pretty much the same thing.

“Did someone start the recording without telling the Pussycat Dolls to start miming?,” tweeted one.

Another said: “Whoooops, #pussycat dolls miming then? Just stood there doing nothing for 15 seconds while their track played, because they couldn’t hear what was going on! #TheOneShow.”

“Well at least that technical malfunction proved that the Pussycat Dolls are lip syncing tonight lol. #TheOneShow,” a third added.

However some viewers were blown away by the performance with one tweeting: “What an amazing performance.”•••

Another wrote: “You girls were amazing”.

The BBC has since apologised for the technical gaffe, explaining that the women were singing live to a backing track, which they could not hear due to an error on their part.

The One Show airs weekdays on BBC One from 7pm.
