Video captures moment Eminem forgets lyrics to one of his best-known hits

A VIDEO shows the moment US rapper Eminem forgets the lyrics to one of his most popular hits while performing in Scotland.

The 44-year-old, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, made the blunder while performing at Glasgow Summer Sessions at Bellahouston Park last night.

The Eight Mile star performed 29 classic songs to 35,000 adoring fans during his first gig in 18 months.

But footage from fans shows Eminem getting to the middle of controversial 2000 hit Stan and taking a complete mind blank.

In a clip filmed by Robbie Loughlin he can be heard rapping: “I read about your Uncle Ronnie too, I’m sorry.

“I had a friend kill himself over some b***h who didn’t want him.”

The star then stumbles his words, goes silent, and looks behind him at his crew while letting out a loud sigh and laughing.

He then signals the sound team saying “You gotta run that again” before managing to pick up the song and continuing right through until the end.

The blunder was met with cheers from the crowd, who during the gig, he claimed were the “best crowd he had ever had”.

Since his appearance last night, footage has started circulating over social media showing Eminem’s mistake.

Hundreds of rap fans have commented on clips with many praising him for carrying on.

Helen Last wrote: “He did the right thing laughed with the crowd and carried on like a pro still did a great concert.”

Marcus Garcia said: “Man, Eminem can take anything!”

And Kristen Taylor wrote: “We all mess up, and Eminem is still awesome as f***.”

One fan Jay Marie, had his own theory about the blunder, referring to Eminem’s new facial hair, writing: “The beard is f****** with his lyrics.”

Stan is regarded as one of Eminem’s most influential songs and tells of himself through a disturbing story of an obsessed fan.

During the gig, Eminem, who was wearing an anti-Trump t-shirt, also revealed he wanted to move to Scotland.

He said: “Scotland might have to be my new home, as right now things aren’t going so well in the States.

“Thank you so much for making us feel at home. We’re going to live here now.”

This morning Eminem took to Twitter, posting an image of himself looking out to the crowd, and wrote: “Thank you for having me yet again Glasgow.”
