Nick Jonas acknowledged his guitar solo at the ACM Awards on Sunday when he tweeted Tuesday, “Yes. I screwed up the solo thanks to a huge brain fart.”

During the ceremony, Jonas performed a duet with Kelsea Ballerini, and some viewers were quick to notice that his guitar solo during the song “Peter Pan” was less than impressive. After Ballerini introduced him, Jonas emerged on the stage with his electric guitar, riffed for a few seconds, and joined the country star to sing harmonies on the tune.

Watch the video of the performance below.

Jonas is set to release a new album Last Year Was Complicated this summer, and debuted its first single “Close,” featuring Tove Lo earlier this month.
