Thread: Kanye West Caught lip synching -- should this guy really have headlined?

  1. #1

    Default Kanye West Caught lip synching -- should this guy really have headlined?

    I hope everyone was happy watching this guy lip synch his way through his set on Sunday.

    If you were wondering why you didn't see any live instruments, other artists accompany him, or really any conversation from him during his act -- its because he lip synched his way through it.

    He could not have live instruments, other artists with him, or any type of conversation if he was lip synching because it wouldn't work.

    He has been accused and/or done it before:

    We already know many times over that Kanye West is incapable of performing live, which is why we’re glad to report that Mr Ego lip synced on American Idol.

    http://www.inquisitr.com/19812/kanye...american-idol/

    We say the scandal is not that Kanye lip-synched through a live TV performance, but that he failed to lip-synch through a live TV performance. If he'd had all the right bells and whistles on board, we would have been all like, "Wow, this rules," rather than all like, "Wow, this hurts our ears." Just sayin'. .

    Yeah, so, posting a link to an article which actually refutes the lipsyncing accusation doesn't exactly help your cause there buddy.

    Some of you people are so profoundly retarded that I wonder how you can even manage to log in.

    if you actually watched kanye's set its pretty obvious he was NOT lip synching. sometimes he was out of breath and would have to skip a word or 2.
    Let's go on a livin' spree!

    Trust me - he couldn't have been lip syncing on Sunday night - his voice was fucking terrible in parts.

    He dropped the lyrics on All Falls Down at one point, definitely not lip syncing.

    No way he was lip syncing, me and my girlfriend looked forward to his set and enjoyed it. However, we both agreed that he should sing less cause he's not good as it, even Kanye acknowledged he's not a good singer. It was a good performance and he was definitely into it.

    You can question the source but .... From Spin ... cr****

    The stage was a vast, open white space with West's band – two keyboardists and a guitarist – pushed to the rear, almost out of sight.

    Tv is much different. TV Performances often come off sounding MUCH worse than live performances. Look what Arcade Fire did on SNL, and then what they did Saturday. Night and Day. Why most people lip sync on tv. And if you are looking for musical integrity in American Idol, Then you are quite lost.

    In his second song, he was slamming the mic down below his waist. At times, his words were still sounding when his mic was below his waist. And it was not a synthesizer, or any electronic device that made it sound like the word was continuing. New words were heard when the mic was below his waist.

    People around me at the event noticed the same thing.

    He had backing tracks that had vocals. Not the same thing as lip syncing.

    hahaha and people are bagging on me for kanye killing my roll. This probably has alot to do with it. Probably why he wasn't saying things like "come on" "jump" "get up" or any other crowd exciting phrases in between raps. Or maybe he is just artistic.

    lol

    The problem here is that it seems you idiots think the King Crimson sample in the song is sung by Kanye.

    They were not backing tracks. I'm talking about his words, his lyrics, his vocals.

    How about no.

    I liked that it was just him, personally. I loved every minutes of that performance, and it is one of my favorite sets from the nine Coachellas I have gone to.

    Exactly. The whole set was canned -- even his lame speech.

    Watching the webcast I thought he was lipsyching in parts, but by the end of it even if I didn't like you have to give the credit for doing such a large back catalogue and rapping as much as he could for over an 1hr +.

    Ok, seriously, just stop. You have been disproven by everyone else here, and by a source you even linked to. Close the browser. Go outside.

    I seem to recall guitar, Justin Vernon and him giving a pretty long winded speech to the crowd that was somewhat emotional.

    That refutes all three of your claims right off the bat. Try again.

    You saying the words, "You have been disproven" is not disproving.

    Please, prove to me that he was in fact not lip synching. I'd like to think that Coachella didn't stoop down to a lip synching, headline closer.

    I thought he was lip synching when during the live broadcast he was switching between wired and wireless mics. In the beginning it seemed as if he might have been, but at the end when he was winded and missing verses you could tell he was not.

    Yup -- I pointed out the first few songs, as I remember -- it was the 2nd song. Didn't notice it after he put the mic on the mic stand.
