But her best moments of course are in the studio. She's known for nailing it quickly and not needing a lot of studio time (yes they use vocal effects but producers still want good stuff to work with).
Maybe Christina's mess up was the reason for them deciding to go this way?
When singer's do live shows it's very hard for them to perform. Dancing is already hard as it is, dancing + singing? I applaud those that can pull them off well. I would say Kylie and Beyonce's one of those that can pull them off well.
I like Britney's live voice sometimes
^Like there on Everytime!

Her vocals are the best when it's a one song performance rather than a whole concert. Her voice is usually better on TV shows and award shows than in her own concerts. Like I said before I think she has issues with her breath control when she performs.
One of my favorites
Sorry for hijacking Beyonce's thread.
You are right JoPee.
Having attended mny outdoor entertainments in my time, and knowing how inadequate the
sound systems can be...I've never begrudged a lip sync by the original star.
The viewing of the honest to god real person could be defiled (think of other fiasco when
they did not lipsync.) by an inadequate performance or technical difficulties.
In simple english, for fucks sake people it wasn't Carnegie Hall there, it was Howdy-Doody's
Second Coronation in 4 years.
This thread like the moronic media shit stir that incited it have more than run their course.
Next it will be claimed as an insurgent plot to discourage and discomfit the American Public. As
I vehemently unsubscribe to the thread, I ask a rhetorical Question...
does this dreck belong, even hardly, belong in the lately torpid Shot Topics?
Maybe pump it up a bit and give it to CE&P as a sub thread or entry in their funny cartoon one?

Do not even send this crap down to CE&P.
We may be a cesspool but we have some standards.
This thread is strictly #firstworldproblems.
Romance is deception.
Well, when it's cold and they perform outside, it's a given that majority of people lipsync. I didn't mind Kelly's performance being shaky. In my eyes, she gave a fat middle finger to mother nature and did her thing. It wasn't pitch perfect, but she did still sing well.
How very disrespectful! but also very clever.
Just Believe will be horrified.
People don't always want to talk about the most important things.
^ yes, fair enough, but he knows there wont be a third inauguration speech.
^ yes, sort of.
I want to listen to that clever lip-synch video again to see if the dubbed words are germane.
The good thing about knowing it's your last term is that you can fight for your views on another level since you don't have to worry about re-election.
Seriously? This is a scandal? People are acting like she whipped out her titty live at the Super Bowl or something....
Bad lip reading
Author of Lost in a Dream. If you want to make me smile, read it and tell me what you think.
Out of all the things to get mad at people for, of all the things to critique, this is what people choose?? Not to question or comment against corrupt politicians, corportations, unfair business practices, socio-economic inequalities, BUT a lip-sync at a stupid event??? People are stupid.
i heard that the reason why she lipsynced at the ball was because she was saving her voice for the super bowl. is this true?
with that said, she really ain't all that as a singer to begin with. she's very overrated as are most mainstream r&b singers are anyway like alicia keys and bitch ass neyo. i would have said that she doesn't look all that either where i could see why guys are all over her and her "bootylicious" body. never understood the hype about her ass, i mean as in her asscheeks for real, either. she never turned me on BUT then again, i'm gay so what do i know? maybe that's why i didn't see the hype with her and jennifer lopez bodies to begin with, pretending to be intended in them when i had none. oh well.
one thing about the closet/you don't have to hurry/it will be bad tomorrow/so brother, don't you worry
When is this stupid fucking thread going to die?
The topic was dead history the next day...
I had hoped for a nice clean kill by the mods.
Sloppy unsubscribe happening now.
I thought the Obama stand in did well too............
Maybe Obama lipsynced too so he wouldn't mess up again?
In 2009, America had two REAL musicians - Yo Yo Ma and Itzhak Perlman - perform "Air and Simple Gifts" during the inauguration. And it's not like they faked it.
...oh wait, yes, they did.
^But Yo Yo Ma isn't as fun to stomp all over considering 90% of Americana Ponderosa Suburbia doesn't even know who that is, much less the type of music, and it's not a beat you can dance to and they didn't snatch trophies and they're not Beysus The Wonderful With The Lace Front Showing.

Well I still like her other type of vocals. Her sound is unique and perfect for pop and everybody recognizes her voice the second they hear it.
She has natural vocal talent but she never would have been as successful doing powerhouse type of vocals.
But either way I think she gave up too easily on singing live and is now completely out of practice. Even if the vocals are not the main priority in her shows she still could have singed it partly live with a backup track rather than completely lipping it all every singe time. MATM in Times Square and VMA 2000 are good examples on doing that type of mixture.
Beyoncé Super Bowl Halftime Show Rehearsal: Day 1
I already had a post typed up:
Beyonce Inauguration Performance: Audio Engineer Says 'No Question' She was Singing
But it seems that I don't have to anymore. Bam:
"Beyoncé Sings National Anthem LIVE Suck It, Haters!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Here's the press conference held earlier today. Around 12:30 is where she begins speaking on it. Looking back at the Inauguration performance, you can hear a slight echo and hear her actually singing along with the track (proving the previous guy's video as true.)
Britney fans like to point it out when other singers do it because she gets 90% of the critisicm despite it being a common practise in the business.
Again the difference is that she doesn't try to hide it while most others do.
And it's an exaggeration that she has never sung live (although she has now completely stopped doing it for few years now).
Comparing a Britney Spears concert and a ceremony with the national anthem is simply comparing apples and oranges.
Recently I heard a 'wise guy' story that I had a party at my home for twenty-five men. It's an interesting story, but I don't know twenty-five men I'd want to invite to a party. ~Joan Crawford
Second, the woman is dead. Get over your petty hatred or shut the fuck up about it; keep it to yourself, it is really old, really tired, and it's not like anyone you like is any better, more memorable or more famous for their voice than she was, ruining her career or not.
Third, where does the OP mention he is a stan for Houston? And if he does, who died and made you the resident Whitney hater? Each time a member mentions her you TRY and read them to filth. Someone needs to remind you that stepping on shit still makes you smell like shit.
"There’s death on the horizon,
and I’ll run to behold your sacrifice..."
Please stop saying Shitney... it's very disrespectful to her and her fans.
Celine Dion and Mariah Carey are good examples. 99,999% of people believe they have never done such a thing because they are powervocalists and only use pre-recorded vocals when miming.
Out of all the celebrity pop acts Britney is the one who lipsyncs the most. But sometimes people speak like she's the only one doing it.
Janet Jackson and Cher lipsync OFTEN and often just use the CD vocals just like Britney. Nobody seems to give a shit.
I'm not a 12 year old girl so I don't use terms like that.
I'm a bit stunned that this is even a topic of conversation in the States; don't you all have enough to talk about?
At outdoor events in dodgy weather, it is standard practice for the music to be pre-recorded. The opening of the Sydney Olympics was totally pre-recorded including the National Anthem and yet there wasn't even a murmur in the press. Get over it, people. We no longer live in the age of failures being allowed or accepted so pre-recording is a must. Give the girl a break, FFS.
