Just hours after Jessica Mauboy was announced as one of the new faces of the NRL the Aussie songstress accidently gave fans more than they bargained for with a revealing pre-game performance.
The 22-year-old singer, songwriter and actress was performing before the NRL and Indigenous All Stars match in Brisbane when some enthusiastic dancing led to a minor wardrobe malfunction.
Mauboy’s rendition of the Wilson Pickett classic "Land of 1000 Dances" to a packed Suncorp Stadium and millions of television viewers had Twitter users talking, but not for the right reasons.
"The NRL season, now featuring extensive coverage of Jessica Mauboy's side-boob. Possibly a diversionary tactic given what else is doing," tweeted @TheBarrow, in reference to the recent revelations about drugs and match fixing in Australian sport.
"Jessica Mauboy almost had a nipple slip!" @Shannon_lfc tweeted.
"Jessica Mauboy...thats definitely not a top you should be dancing in...," @Anthonyyyx3 wrote.
Mauboy, runner-up in season four of Australian Idol, has recorded a new anthem for the NRL and will play a starring role in the code's advertising campaign for the 2013 season.
"NRL is my game… I love it," Mauboy, a North Queensland Cowboys and Queensland Maroons fan, said.
"Performing two years ago at the NRL Grand Final was a career highlight, so to be chosen to be part of the advertising campaign for the season is incredibly special.
"I find the spirit of the players and the NRL to be inspiring."
The Darwin-born star established herself as one of Australia's biggest pop stars when she was invited to perform for Oprah Winfrey and US President Barack Obama in 2011. She has also been a support act for international superstars Beyonce, Flo Rida and Chris Brown on tours around Australia.
Mauboy starred in the Australian hit film "The Sapphires" and was also on the cover of WHO Magazine's Sexiest People for 2012.
