SNL / Ashlee Simpson lip synching aka Milli Vanilli

Anybody see this as well tonight? She lip synched the first song, that was TERRIBLE, you could tell right away... i tuned back around the end of the second song, or what i thought was the end because the band was playing but she was nowhere in sight...i thought it was odd but didn't think anything of it.. NOW I KNOW - she missed her cue!!!

I guess she's really untalented, why didn't she just say 'stop the tape, let's sing for real!' and continue going... why walk away like a clown???

EDIT: sorry, no link

PS i wish i owned TIVO

PPS the show was excellent overall, Jude Law is HOT

Because they have no talent. That sounds harsh, but many of these people only sound good after lots of studion editing and touch-ups, not to mention other types of enhancers. Lots of people sound pretty awful live. Also, I didn't see the clip, but if the artist is a "performer" and does a lot of dancing or other complicated routines, it's very difficult to sing well and do that at the same time, so they have them perform and lip sync. Just my 2 cents.

That is one of my pet peeves with "live" performances these days. Do you notice how almost EVERY music video these days (other than rock and country) has choreographed dancing? This all started with Janet Jackson and Paula Abdul in the 80's as something different but it has become so overused that it is ridiculous. To artists like Britney Spears who lip sync all their music because of the complicated dance routines, people don't buy your CDs because of your dancing. And why even wear the phony headset mic? Everyone knows you lip sync.

A few years ago I watched a live performance by the country trio SheDaisy where they attempted a dance routine while actually singing and their vocals, which are usually very good, suffered because of it. Does anyone here really even care what else the singer does on stage, just as long as they sing? OK I'm done with my rant.

BTW, the link posted above doesn't work for me... "This page cannot be displayed".

From what I understand, a lot of the performers on Saturday Night Live lip sync. It probably has to do with the acoustics on the set, because some places just aren't good for live singing. The other artists just pull it off way better.

If they could really sing they wouldn't have to lip sync. I have never liked her anyway!
