Many performers have been at the receiving end of criticism for lip-syncing. Does it bother you when performers do this? Does it bother when actors lip-sync on television?

Yes, it does. But not as much as the use if auto-tuners, when a singer is supposedly singing live, so in some ways if they can't sing and require assistance of some sort I would rather they lip-sync to a recording than sing through an auto-tuner.
Frankly, I would rather return to the days when only people who could sing were considered singers....
I preferred it when people who couldn't sing started punk bands and shouted instead. :P
lol yes, good point! I'm quite partial to a bit of punk too :)
Both good points!

Yes I hate this! But then only thing I hate even more is when someone you know tries to do it and fails miserably but you have to pretend their rendition was fabulous! Haha. It's the most awkward thing in the world to watch.

Yes it does bother me. I can't appreciate it as any sort of real art.
I hate it when they do that.
Simple.
No It doesnt as I cannot tell the difference, so it cannot bother me!

If it was at a live concert I would get annoyed however, but on TV i cannot tell the difference mostly.

Yes & yes.
Just HATE it!
Heard of a concert with Mariah Carey recently where she lip synced and it was pretty obvious. The patrons were furious as the tickets were pretty pricey.
I also hate people singing to tracks at paid concerts. Fans deserve better.

Yes, they do! Good one Gia.

Their stupidity of doing it amazes me. Audiences are wonderfully forgiving and they expect entertainment, not perfection. You can buy a cd for that. As Jennifer has said - punk is a wonderful example. I bet nobody imagines that John Lydon can really hold a tune, bless him. Why do it when you can look such a fool?! Lip synch and auto tune are just begging for a fall. Remember Milli-Vanilli?

Sorry, must correct that . . . . "their stupidity IN doing it . . . ."
