Blame the sound system, blame the acoustics, and blame your drummer like Ashlee Simpson did. These celebrities have to do whatever it takes to recover from their lip-syncing incidents. According to ABC News, some artists use a performance track of instruments, backing vocals and pre-recorded hook vocals which would play during a live show. Viewers might think the artist is lip-syncing when they left in background vocals on purpose. Some of it is real and some of it is not. Just like the emotion they put into their songs! Let’s see who is faking it because of the weather, illnesses, asthma, and over-choreographed dance routines.
She’s got the eye of John Mayer, she’s dancing through the fire and you’re going to hear her roar to a pre-recorded vocal track. Katy Perry can play the guitar and sing at the same time, but there were no acoustic performances at the NRJ Music Awards in 2013. There was a malfunction with the backing track and she wasn’t able to sing to mouth the lyrics on the correct beat. Then the host stepped in and asked if she wanted to re-do it!
Jennifer Hudson performed at the Super Bowl in 2009 but it was the actual singing that had people talking. Ricky Minor was the producer for the show and told The Associated Press about insisting she sing to a prerecorded track. “This was such an important performance, because it’s the first time everyone has seen Jennifer. But she’s in such a great place, with such great spirits, and time can heal her wounds,” said Minor. She probably would have nailed it live!
It was the F-bomb heard around the world. Selena Gomez had an amazing moment when she was performing at the KIIS FM Jingle Ball concert in 2013. “Sorry the sound isn’t working. Are you guys having a good night? I promise a lot of cooler people are gonna come out tonight,” said Gomez at the venue. She then failed to sing two more songs that were promised and then yelled an expletive before running off stage.
Don’t lip-sync at the Christmas tree lighting special! Anything but that! Ashley Tisdale had a performance that was called the “worst lipsyncing ever” in 2008. She supposedly flubbed the lyrics to “Last Christmas” by Wham! and they say she gave Ashlee Simpson a run for her money. That song is a gem that people either love or they hate. Last Christmas, she gave your her prerecorded heart and the very next day, you put it online.
Iggy is gonna make you beg for it, according to her song “Beg For It.” But she might have done some begging for a better performance when she was caught lip-syncing while performing with J.Lo. They were singing “Acting Like That” at Chicago’s B96 Summerbash. Lopez gave her a confused look and Iggy motioned to her ear piece to say she couldn’t hear anything, leaving Jennifer to carry the song.
Rascal Flatts admitted to lip-syncing during the 2014 ACM Awards. The trio announced that Gary LeVox was not singing the song because he had lost his voice after performing at many shows before the event. They didn’t want to cancel at the last minute and thought the show must go on with lip-syncing. One fan tweeted, “Seriously? If you’re going to lip sync, at least be good at it.” That’s cold!
Scott Cooke “Scotty” McCreery won the tenth season of “American Idol” in 2011. He also won the interest of TMZ when they posted a clip of his lip-syncing on a Thanksgiving float. His mouth was not moving as the song played and he failed to bring the mic up to his lips in time to trick the parade cameras. Well, he’s an idol now, right? Why bother with the hassle of live vocals?
Jeremih should invest in some crowd control because some people don’t like it when he lip-syncs. They really don’t like it. He was performing at Clayton’s Bar and Grill on South Padre in 2012. He was two hours late and people probably thought the vocals were too similar to the vocals on his CD. During the song “Down on Me,” somebody threw a bottle! Then somebody threw a cocktail and drenched him before he walked off!
She’s gonna swing from the chandelier especially when Sia’s pre-recorded vocals start playing at her concert. Britney Spears was supposed to sing her song “Perfume” at a Las Vegas concert but people heard Sia’s vocals instead! At least she chose a great singer to lip sync to! Sia actually wrote “Perfume” for Britney to perform so this could have been an homage. Britney’s going to swing from the chandelier with perfume and lip sync because she can.
She’s got that boom boom super bass but does she also have lip-syncing in her repertoire? Nicki Minaj was reportedly lip-syncing at an iHeartRadio Festival in 2014. AllHipHop reported a fan saying, “She was clearly lip singing during her performance. Her mic was held very far from her, and her mouth did not match the words. Everyone noticed.” Billboard countered that Minaj eventually saved the day by doing an a capella version of “Flawless.”
You can stand under Rihanna’s umbrella but can you stand her lip-syncing and being high during a concert? She performed at the F1 Grand Prix in Singapore. Hopefully, she performed “Shut Up and Drive” since that would be relevant! Her fans were not so happy after the performance, tweeting that she was disappointing, high on weed, and lip-syncing. These fans are acting like they never enjoyed a great Rihanna song in the club. Relish her presence!
Jennifer Lopez was accused of lip-syncing her 2014 performance of “I Luh Ya Papi” on “American Idol.” People could hear the backing track and her lips were not matching the lyrics. Obviously, the focus was supposed to be about her sparkly daisy dukes and her crazy dance moves. Jenny from the block doesn’t need all of this drama! She was also representing the Bronx borough of New York City with graffiti in the background.
At least she’s still got “All I Want For Christmas.” Mariah Carey had the voice of a generation. Now she’s worrying fans with her marriage woes and her singing struggles. She was four hours late and allegedly lip-synced at the 2014 World Music Awards. It could have been a foreshadowing for her impending comeback as a fallen star that rises and falls like a meteorite onto the music industry. “Me. I am Mariah…the meteoric comeback.”
This girl had other problems before all of the rehab drama. Lindsay Lohan was accused of lip-syncing on “Good Morning America” in 2004. When you’re an actor trying to break into the music industry, everyone is going to watch you closely to see if you fall. “The main concern for me was I wanted to sing songs that, when I sing live, sound the same, and I don’t have to worry about it,” said Lohan.
The American Authors live up to their names by actually writing their own lyrics, but lip-syncing is another story. During the 2014 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the band was ready to sing “Best Day of My Life.” They did not put up their microphones when the music and vocal tracks started. They were just waving obliviously at fans. When you have one of the hottest songs, you don’t care about the singing. The waving is just too much fun!
