Lipsynching is sooooo STUPID! Do they not care that fans are paying astronomical prices to see and HEAR them LIVE? Otherwise, what's the fkn purpose of a concert if you're only going to make believe you're singing? It's a major ripoff and of the utmost disrespect 2 those who supported your ass for your entire career with dedication, loyalty, appreciation and above all, hard-earned loot. It's completely unacceptable and in bad taste; a slap in the face 2 the fans. How embarrassing for her 2 have had an audience literally walk out of the show. sad

That might be true for singers who just stand there and sing and couldn't dance to save their lives. It's a difference for visual artists, who have released iconic dance videos. That is part of the show, part of the entertainment, part of why people pay to see these shows. The older one gets, the harder dancing and singing simultaniously gets. So don't be an ass and do not brush everyone over the same comb. It is no rip off if a dance artist enhances their live vocals with backup tracks. No one wants to hear an out of breath singer/dancer.

And since she was performing on a festival, no everyone was there to see her. So Black Eyed Peas fans or 50 Cent fans walking out after they've seen their artist means shit, other that they have no taste and don't deserve better anyway.

REread and U go see concerts by singers who don't sing with YOUR hard-earned loot. BYYYYE.

Hungry? Just look in the mirror and get fed up.

SAY IT AIN"T SO!! Janet Jackson lip singing? Liars the lot of them!! disbelief mad rolleyes omfg omg hmm wacky loser bored2 faint finger fit bitchfight






Janet Jackson has never sung live at a concert in her life. She lipped sync the entire show when I saw here perform in Indianapolis twenty years ago. lol We (my brother and I) had 3rd row seats.



To be fair. Ms. Jackson's voice has always been razer thin, time brings bout a change. Janet is heavier (middle age spread) and at the age of 50, sister girl isn't going to, dance or jump all over the damn stage. I read stories of the pain James Brown went through ( rapping ice bags on almost hs entire body) attempting to do the same dances moves and splits on stage. I think that's why Prince did acoustic tours, sitting at at the piano or playing or playing an acoustic guitar.



Ms. Jackon isn't in the best of shape, lose 15/20 pounds, get in shape, and practice lip singing. Believe or not you still have to use circular breathing to do that!

Lmao! spit I was about to say, has this person missed the past 33 years of Janet’s mainstream career? I love Janet but people are not flocking to see her so they can be wowed by her vocals. Side note: huge fan of your posts!

Janet has one of the most soothing singing voices in Pop & Rnb. Her voice is like a musical instrument.Plus has gotten better with age. Listen to "Unbreakable" her last only independent album where she has embraced her brothers vocal abilities,that she shied away from for many years so she wouldn't be accused of copying them.

Heard from a great source many years ago. P and this person were at a Janet show. They walked by the soundboard and P, recognizing the engineer, said something to the effect - 'shouldn't that be on'. He was making a joke of her lip syncing.

It may not be obvious watching the b.s. award shows or other b.s. media outlets but the real players know who they are and they know that the Janet's of the world are studio concoctions. Madonna, Janet and all the other psuedo 'icons' are all jokes compared to the real players.

Are these new fans? Janet lip sync is widely known. Not just her but quite a few entertainers.

Famous last words. All my favourite artists from the 80s are in my Deadpool. Janet included, she just abuses her body constantly. Anyone big in the 70s is still top of the list. Then the Janet's and Madonna's.

Merry Xmas!

There are similarities but they approach to singing is very different imo

ALL of this!

In this day and age, I know damn well nobody was walking out of a Janet show because she was lip syncing. EVERY POP STAR lip-syncs. ALL OF THEM. Yes, even the ones that you think don't. They do. How much of a show is lip-synced is what varies. The more intricate the dancing; the more lip-syncing.

There is no pleasing people these days. They want a big ass show with all of the fixings; they want Janet to sing like Patti Labelle and dance like Chris Brown, and only want to pay $10 for the tickets.

I saw JANET years and years ago at Radio City in NYC and honestly I was not there and people were not there and caring about her singing, they were there for the SHOW the spectacle and thats really it. People going to a Britney Spears concert what is the first thing they say, "can she still dance" or " wow she looks hot" etc....If that is what your BASE is looking for your singing is non existent, same goes for Madonna but then again there is about to be a riot with her cancelling every other show, this tour is basically finished her off huge mistake for her to even try and tour. HOWEVER where this whole lip syncing thing and backing tracks are NOT getting a pass is in the ROCK genre, there is a war going on that really radio personality EDDIE TRUNK exposed and it really came from you tube videos from fans who happened to be at a Paul Stanley show, but he at the time wasnt lip syncing he just sounded like shit, what happened after was KISS touring and there being tons of lip syncing going on, this started a war with other older bands like Motley crue which came clean and said at times some "tracks" were used to fill the sound in. For me I dont do the HUGE acts anymore because I am not paying $100 and up to sit a mile away from the stage and then even think I am buying merch for a show I couldnt even see. I stick with indie artists playing smaller gigs at places in NYC like City Winery and The Iridium because the place is controlled, I can see everything no matter where I am, I am not dealing with rapid insane fans, and at these gigs no one fakes it.

Idk how people expect these artist to do all what they do with the touring schedules they have and still sound like the track. If people had realistic expectations things would be different.

Janet on some of her songs sounds just like MJ. Jimmy Jam even said Janet intentionally wouldn't record some songs because she felt she sounded too much like her brothers. Not until the "Unbreakable" album is when she finally embraced their sound. I've studied Janet's voice since she was a little girl. So I know what I'm talking about. But I'm not going to go back & forth with U. So we can agree to disagree.

It’s not uncommon for siblings to sound alike. That’s not what I was referring to. I’m not sure why you’re so defensive towards my comment.
