Britney Spears and the worst lip sync moments of all time
Pop phenomenon Britney Spears is currently touring Australia, but her fans, the press and even the Aussie government aren’t happy over the fact that the singer isn’t, well, singing. Of course, people might not be so upset if they actually heard what she sounds like live, but that’s another matter. Lawmakers are telling ticket vendors to consider making a disclaimer about the Milli Vanilli nature of the show when customers buy them.
All of this brought to mind a few classic moments in lip sync history, starting with a Portuguese group who give new meaning to the phrase “the show must go on.”
Ashlee Simpson’s epic lip sync fail on Saturday Night Live will forever remain a classic, even if the original clips seem to have been scrubbed from YouTube.
And who could forget Public Image Limited’s legendary appearance on American Bandstand (of all places), in which the charade of lip syncing was laid more than a little bare.
Feel free to recommend your favorite lip sync moments in the comment section, and I’ll pop up some more videos as we go.
