Kendall Jenner became an immediate topic of conversation when she showed up on the 2014 Billboard Awards’ red carpet with sister Kylie. Then the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star set Twitter ablaze when she introduced 5 Seconds Of Summer, which led to speculation about whether or not she had gotten plastic surgery.
The oldest Jenner sister took the stage to welcome pop sensation but instead she sounded like she really wanted to say One Direction.
Things started out OK. "The band about to rock the Billboard Awards comes from down under but the direction they’re heading is straight up," Kendall announced. "Recently, they made their debut on the Billboard 200 number 2...” And then that’s when things got a little shaky.
Kendall jumbled her words, threw her hands up in the air, awkwardly giggled and then said, “Guys, I’m the worst reader.” She stood there for a moment and said, “Um,” before pulling herself together and saying, “They’re only getting bigger take a look!”
Afterwards she tweeted she left her contacts at home and added the hash tag #LessonLearned.

Some said Kendall’s alleged plastic surgery “went to her head” and added to her gaffe.
Shout out to Kendall Jenner for not only ruining 5SOS intro but also for fucking up her face with whatever plastic surgery she just had.

Even with all the negative things that were said about the half siblings of the Kardashian sisters some people remarked the Jenners were getting ready to take over the Kardashian legacy.
Bruce Jenner has said that his daughters didn't need to go to college, but it seems Kendall might have benefitted from another reading class. A few created memes a la Ben Stiller’s character Derek Zoolander.
