If my memory serves me correct the contestants on American Idol never used to lipsink and now they are. Wasn't it more fun to see them live? I mean thats why I used to watch them becuase singing live is tough and for some sick reason I enjoyed hearing them sing off key...not that they still don't sound off key at times.

are you sure? That would defeat the entire point of the show.

yeah the last group of people are lipsinking. i don't remember at which round i noticed. its cool because thats what they'll do if they win but its not as fun and makes the judges comments less impactful.

Sounds like an April Fool's joke to me.

I know they have backup or background singers, depending on the song,
but I don't believe that they're actually lip syncing their own words.

Matter of fact, based on how bad some of them sound, there's NO WAY they'd lip sync that.

Yes, this does seem like an april fools joke. If these guys lipsync, how would they sound without lipsyncing. Some sound horrible IMO.

lol The best April fools joke is the one on James Blake's site about the personal assistant.
