LEANN RIMES may have been a little drunk on stage during her over-the-top duet with a contestant on “The X Factor,” according to the latest Hollywood celebrity gossip.

Did you think so too?

LeAnn Rimes reminded many of us of her vocal talent when she gave an amazing, laid-back performance of her cheat song titled “Borrowed” on Jay Leno‘s talk show earlier this week.

Her onstage performance with female contestant Carly Rose Sonenclar on Wednesday’s “The X Factor,” however, was nothing like that.

The fragile country singer, who is trying to regain her popularity as the LeAnn that we all knew and loved with a new album than for her philandering past, delivered a pretty cringe-worthy performance of her hit song “How Do I Live,”where she over sang, refused to harmonize with the young contestant and even grabbing Sonenclar‘s arm at one point seemingly to maintain her balance.

She is now being feared to be in need of a return to rehab—this time for possible alcohol abuse rather than for “emotional issues.”

Watch her uncomfortable performance below:

Do you think LeAnn had been drinking beforehand?
