We’re way past the point of debate with regards to whether pop stars lip-sync on stage. They all do it. As we learned with the whole Beyonce anthem debacle, even singers who can actually sing on-key live still choose to mouth the words onstage rather than leave themselves open to the possibility of making a mistake.
Even though the prevalence of lip- syncing is common knowledge, it’s still a lot of fun to see it get exposed. That’s exactly what happened to Justin Bieber at a concert in Dubai, U.A.E., last night. An overzealous fan “attacked” Bieber, knocking him to the ground and knocking the grand piano he was pretending to play over as if it was made of cardboard– which it very well may have been.
Miraculously, Bieber continued to sing perfectly on-key throughout the whole ordeal. He probably even did it without moving him lips. What a pro!
Bieber’s been criticized in recent weeks for being hours late to some of his scheduled performances. And, as we know, when he gets there, he doesn’t actually sing.
Remind me again why it’s worth it to spend hundreds of dollars on a Bieber concert when you could just sit at home and listen to his CD?
