James Blunt, 'I Was Joking About Playing the Organ at Royal Wedding'

British singer James Blunt has assured fans he's not performing at next week's royal wedding, confessing he was joking when he told multiple interviewers he'd be playing the organ on the big.

Many failed to spot the joke when the "You're Beautiful" star, James Blunt talked about his preparations for a royal performance at Westminster Abbey and when his North American tour included a day off on April 29, fans felt sure he was being serious.

James Blunt has now spoken out to clear up reports he'll be the wedding organist, telling Billboard.com, "Like every English or British musician being asked one silly question too often, I gave a silly answer - and then I went to my Wikipedia.com page and changed it to say 'classically trained church organist,' and 4,400 websites picked up on it."

"It was really funny. My publicist was really nervous but, you know, it's all in good humour. I imagine it's going to be a traditional wedding, and at most traditional weddings they don't have pop stars playing."

Ironically, James Blunt and groom-to-be Prince William both served in the British army's Household Cavalry, and the singer/songwriter did work closely with the royal household.

He adds, "That was my main job the last two years in the army. Whenever you'd see The Queen or a member of the royal family riding out in a kind of public environment, I was the guy who'd be riding beside them."
