Mariah Carey lip synching on ‘American Idol’?
Last Thursday, Mariah delivered a medley of her biggest ballads before introducing the audience to her new track “Beautiful.” But what some saw as a flawlessly divalicious performance, seemed a little suspect to others. As soon as Mariah got off stage, Twitter exploded with accusations that she lip-synched her way through the entire set.
“She ABSOLUTELY DID NOT lip-sync,” Mariah’s rep told E! News, acknowledging that the “Idol” judge did sing over a pre-recorded track. “She performed LIVE in front of several thousands of people!!!! (and did it 3 times!!).”
The rep continued the statement, defending, “No LIP-SYNCING whatsoever! She did 3 takes and thrilled the crowd with singing little songs in between that we’re NOT part of her medley.”
