It's a little embarrassing when a pop star gets caught lip syncing. The truth is that it happens all the time.. do we remember Ashlee Simpson's performance on SNL or Beyoncé's performance for the White House. It’s expected, especially at an award show when they want to show off a perfect performance. On Saturday, Katy Perry was singing Roar at the NRJ Music Awards in Cannes. Katy Perry’s mouth was moving, but the (correct) words were just not coming out…The lip movements and the lyrics were not even close to being in sync, Perry’s mouth was a few full seconds away from the playback, creating an incredibly awkward performance.
Mid-song, a smooth Frenchman halted the performance. “If you don’t mind, we can restart,” he said. “We had a little problem with the sound.” Perry did as was requested, and sang live, but looked uncomfortable while doing so. NRJ released a statement about the incident, blaming what happened on a “bad soundtrack [that] was accidentally launched, taking over the live performance of Katy at the beginning of the delivery tube.”
She'll have to redeem herself for this..
