    Link, plus quote. http://sports.yahoo.com/olympics/news?slug=ap-china-lip-synchedsong&prov=ap&type=lgns

    Short Story, used a prettier girl to lip sync over the uglier one that could sing better. Also, some of the feet walking things was pre recorded.


    Long Story and everything else here.

    Big deal, the opening ceremonies rocked. Everything was so beautiful, I agree that some bucktoothed girl singing would've ruined things in a way for me.

    LOL They learned it from us. Hollywood has been doing that forever. Anyone ever hear of Marni Nixon?

    Or how about Marine Jahan or any number of body doubles? Stunt people?

    We fake this stuff to make a "good show" all the time. Why be so hard on China for doing the same? It wasn't a singing competition...it was a show created for a worldwide television audience.

    Think about how long China had to prepare for this.

    Then you will see the failure.
     
  7. Germany is lipsynching queen of the world.

    I wouldn't be surprised if some guy named Hanz had any part in this.

    Tip for those visiting Germany: don't watch tvshows which involve music, you'll feel very very sad, frightened and angry, all at once. Feels weird.

    Think of the fact that the part was for a child.

    Then you will see the failure in your thinking that having a long time to prepare has anything to do with this since kids get older and change very very rapidly.

    It's not like there wasn't an identified talent pool of adult singers and actresses, but they still told Marni Nixon she wasn't cute enough for the lead...and Audrey Hepburn that her singing voice sucked too much to allow her to do her own vocals.

    This has been a showbiz staple forever and ever and ever, and even more prevalent since the advent of movies and television and recorded vocals.

    People are just looking for any reason to be bitter about everything Chinese which is pretty much epic fail in my book. Are you guys upset that the dude didn't fly through the air to light the torch under his own power, too? :rolleyes:

    who cares? what china does is china's commy business, srsly. Its just for a good show and entertainment, and to b real - an ugly as girl would have prolly been gross and not as appealing to all the audiences around the world..

    and btw, the ceremony was absolutely awesome.

    Sorry I'm born and bred on commie hate.

    Oh and since their child singers aren't what they appear, I wonder how many of those Chinese weightlifters doped up.

    fail

    sham olympics.

    ok, the girl singing is in first grade, how ugly could she be? The girl that they put in her place, is in 3rd grade.

    Sorry to break it to ya, but Communist countries haven't had the edge in the doping games for a long, long time.
