Just as Fair Trading Minister Virginia Judge stated: “Let’s be clear– live means live. If you are spending up to $200 [on concert tickets], I think you deserve better than a film clip.” Lip synchronization is often considered to be dishonest. BUT, let’s see this!!!
I have to commit that I love her at 1:24, but definitely not at 1:35; it just sounds damn horrible. I do not care about the external factors, such as allergies or drug addition, which may lead to this awful and husky voice because I am not a reporter for the tabloid. I just represent a group of people who have to spend quite a lot hoping to enjoy a live concert. Unfortunately, what Whitney Houston did was against their wills and made more than half of them walk out of the concert before it ended. Is Whitney Houston a successful entertainer?
Probably, yes, for her prominence in the past. But, definitely, NOT clever, especially when you compare her to Michael Jackson, who did lip sync when presenting Billie Jean on the television special Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever in 1983
By doing the lip sync, he could emphasize more on his dance and create a better on-stage performance. Look at 3:37, his first moonwalk would not be that marvelous if he was singing authentically! After that performance, he accumulated more reputation and became more eminent and influential. He became a pop icon! Thinking about his on-stage figure, lip sync is likely to be a little drop of water in the deep ocean. The main part of the ocean consists of “ The King of Pop”, “ the most successful entertainer of all time”, “the best selling album– Thriller”, and etc.
An author from ethicsscoreboard.com argue that lip-syncing in live concerts will “…destroy our ability to enjoy great live performances the way we once could.” WHAT A JOKE! Probably this author is a HUGE fan of Whitney Houston.
