What's so bad about lip-synching?


Recommended Posts

Performing to recordings has been around for decades

It seems Ashlee Simpson will forever bear the scarlet "L" -- for lip-synching.

The 20-year-old "singer" has been lampooned and shamed, held up as an example of today's style-over-substance culture -- all because of one lip-synch gone famously awry on "Saturday Night Live."

Yet must Simpson bear the cross alone, while all the entertainment world goes free? Consider this:

Now-classic footage from shows like "American Bandstand" featured artists lip-synching.

Michael Jackson mouthed part of his superstar-making moment on the "Motown 25" TV show in 1983.

Whitney Houston's spine-chilling rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the 1991 Super Bowl was prerecorded.

And perhaps the only moments when Britney Spears did not lip-synch during her recent tour was when she said hello and goodbye to her audience.

"It doesn't make the least bit of difference," Dick Clark, America's oldest teenager and the creator of the now-defunct "American Bandstand," told The Associated Press.

I disagree with everything the author had to say.

All of his examples are people I wouldn't go to see live because I had already put them in the same category as this girl.

If I go to a live show I am paying my hard earned $ to hear an artist sing......not just move their frickin lips. I can stay at home and listen to a CD, tape or record and save some money.......if the artist has talent then stand on the stage and show it, I could care less if they can dance. Still they wonder why we download their music......it's because we want what we didn't get from a live show......

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
