MUST-SEE! Michael Bolton Falls Asleep During Live TV Interview

Maybe he was listening to his own music?

Crooner Michael Bolton fell asleep during a live TV interview in Australia on Tuesday February 5. As The Morning Show hosts Larry Emdur and Kylie Gillies introduced the “When a Man Loves a Woman” singer, he noticeably closed his eyes and tilted down.

“Maybe he’s just updating Instagram,” Emdur kiddingly said.

After a few more awkward moments of silence, Bolton opened his eyes, exclaimed, “It’s gone silent,” (possibly in reference to his ear piece) and closed his lids tightly again.

A few minutes later, Bolton was able to connect with the morning program, though he continued to sound slow and slurred.
