Michael Bolton appeared to catch a little shuteye when an interview with an Australian morning show had technical issues.
The singing legend was a guest on “The Morning Show” which suffered an unfortunate snafu when it came time begin the interview. The hosts did a big intro and when it was Bolton’s turn to talk, his eyes were closed and there was no answer.
The hosts tried multiple times to get his attention and the “When a Man Loves a Woman” crooner did eventually open his eyes but only to say he couldn’t hear anything.
The show eventually got things straightened out and Bolton conducted the interview a short time later.

Feb. 6 8:15 AM PT — Once the video went viral, Bolton tweeted saying he was not asleep but was actually tweeting while the technical glitch was worked on.
I got my first record deal when I was 15 and I haven’t slept since!! In all seriousness there were technical issues with the live feed and they caught me tweeting! We had a great interview once they fixed the glitch. #FakeNews #50thAnniversary #SymphonyOfHits pic.twitter.com/xE3aV7GelL
