After Milli Vanilli was exposed in the ’90s for lip-syncing to other singers’ vocals and passing them off as their own, lip-syncing has had a bad reputation. Nowadays, prerecorded vocal tracks are pretty common and many singers today use them; however, we still feel let down when we hear a singer has lip-synced. Here are 9 famous singers who have been caught in lip-syncing scandals!
Beyonce admitted that she lip-synced to a recording of the national anthem at President Barack Obama’s Inauguration. She was so busy at the time that she was unable to rehearse with the U.S. Marine band. “Due to no proper sound check, I did not feel comfortable taking a risk,” she said in a statement days later.
