The Black Eyed Peas' will.i.am forgets lyrics, but cell phone saves his 'Party' verse

Imagine being a superstar, performing on stage in front of thousands nightly. You’d probably want to know the lyrics to your tunes like the back of your hand, right?

Well, the Black Eyed Peas’ will.i.am, usually on-point with his rhymes when it’s go time, dropped the ball recently during a taped performance of “Don’t Stop the Party” on French television  show Taratata.

Luckily, his smartphone saved the day; still, points were definitely deducted from what could’ve been a great showing. Check out Will’s quick-save method after the jump.

The most hilarious part about this clip is that Will didn’t go for the phone mid-verse. He pulled it out before he was supposed to begin, as if he just knew he was on the verge of blanking out and needed to be refreshed.

Sure, it wasn’t pretty. But I’d rather that than watch him stumble through his part all together.

What do you guys think of Will’s flub? No biggie or major issue? Let us know in the comments below.
