The Spice Girls Accused Of Lip-Syncing


You are going to read it somewhere else, so I might as well post it here.

Last night at the Boston gig, the audio at the Spice Girl concert cut out.

As a result people are now saying that the concert is not live and that the girls are lip-syncing. Perez Hilton mentions the incident on his site also.

According to the comments on You Tube the confetti broke the sound machine.

One said "I was sitting in the front row... they looked so confused. I think a fuse was cut when the confetti exploded.. the speakers went out. Oh well.. they did amazing. It came back right at the end when they finished with "HI C YA HOLD TIGHT".

I was close enough to tell that they were not lip-syncing, so I will put this down to a technical fault.

Did anyone go last night?

ps the guy on the you tube tape is sooooo annoying.

You can see they still continued to sing and dance, but i think we all know by now that most of SUYL Reprise is lipsynched anyway.

The guy in the video is annoying, he doesn't sound like a fan, more like Perez Hilton who can't wait to publish a scandal.

No one doing a concert of that size with dancing, fans, confetti and other machinery does their set completely live. You'd be insane to do that - all we'd hear are bum notes and heavy breathing. I"m a performer and my husband's in the music industry - we've had this conversation many times.

I think the point is, in the end, whether they were completely lip synching or whether they were singing live over top of the tracks, is that those are their voices so who cares!? Now, if we find out that a bunch of girls from California were the ones in the studio - then we can be upset.

It hardly proves they are lipsynching, seeing as the band, backing tapes and mics all cut out seemingly. And it is 100% FALSE that they are miming during the SUYL Reprise, this is directed to the hideous Electra, they are singing LIVE over backing tracks (not live over audio though) and NOT miming - there is a difference.

d22ghj, I think your comment to Electra was harsh as you called him hideous. I don't like people dissing each other, but I wanted to give Electra to right to reply should he wish.
