Lauryn Hill has left fans "confused" and "underwhelmed" on her present US tour.

The former Fugees singer has habitually appeared up to three hours late for dates during her tour and confused the audience by playing unrecognisable versions of her own songs.

At a recent show in Atlanta, the 'Everything Is Everything' singer reportedly said from the stage how she was tired of "playing the same music night after night".

A disgruntled concertgoer told SandraRose.com: "Lauryn said, 'I want crowd participation,' but nobody could participate because nobody knew the music! Everybody was looking around like, 'What song is this?'"

"It was new music completely. The lyrics were the same, but every single record she played she put a different spin on it. She changed the whole thing.

"You can't just say 'I don't wanna play my music night after night.' That's what we pay our money to hear!"

Meanwhile her former bandmate Wyclef Jean has spoken about Lauryn and third Fugees member Pras Michel, saying that while he loves them, the group - who split up in 1997, but reunited briefly from 2004 to 2006 - will not get back together again.

He said: "It was the first band of hip-hop in our generation. At the end of the day, Pras is my brother and Lauryn is my sister, despite what the media say.

"The Fugees are not meant to be. We're rock stars from a locked group. You're going to have egos and differences but at the end of the day I love them both very much."
