Here is my opinion of lip-syncing in the music business:

With the technology that exists today, some of the worst singers can sound like professional recording artists with a little editing in the studio. One of the times that artists may appear to not be performing live is when they use a performance track, which includes the instruments, backing vocals and hook vocals pre-recorded and playing in the background during a live show. I understand that big broadcast shows like the Grammys, American Music Awards, etc have time schedules that is so precise and it's physically not possible to mic an entire band for every segment that comes up, During such performances, the singer's microphone is still on. On the parts that they are not very confident with or if the performance is physically demanding, the artist will sing at a lower volume and more of the performance track vocals can be heard. I think there are times when artists are allowed a pass, because shows have become so big in terms of production and dancing. 

There are very few artists who actually don't sing and completely lip-sync to a performance track that includes full lead vocals. This is my pet peeve. This type of performance should not be tolerated when the fan has to pay good money for the ticket to see an artist and they should have the pipes to back up their songs. 

I am a big wrestling fan as I have been watching it since I was young. WWE wrestling is no longer categorized as a "Sport". They are now "Sports Entertainment" since everyone knows they are scripted. Maybe we should label those artists who all they do is lip sync? Maybe include on the ticket a statement saying "All or portions of this event have been pre-recorded"? 

If you are fortunate enough to be in the music business then make sure you give your fans a chance to hear you perform at live events. Unfortunately a very high percentage of artists sound good on the record but cannot sing a note if their lives depended on it.... These artists should not fool their fans.     

It never ceases to amaze me how people who have no knowledge of the music business are the ones that have the most opinions on how things should be done. ‪#‎DontQuitYourDayJob‬ ‪#‎Truth‬

Re-evaluating my priorities. "Show me the Money" is my new motto.

Never tell your problems to anyone...20% don't care and the other 80% are glad you have them.
