Hey all, making my first foray into the pit here. Anyways, maybe I've just been naive my whole life, but I was always under the impression that lip-syncing/prerecorded tracks were the kind of thing that occasionally happens, but is generally frowned upon. But last night on Conan, some pop singing type lady and her band were "performing" on live tv. During the "performance", I couldn't help but notice that her guitar, and quite possibly the instruments of the rest of the band had seemingly nothing to do with the sound coming out of my television. I started thinking back to all of the so-called live performances I've seen on these late-night talk shows lately. They DID seem rather, I don't know, polished. Is play-acting really such common practice these days? Do ANY bands actually perform live on these short tv spots?

No. TV channels can't risk people saying something stupid on national television. Hence everything being synced. All of American Idol is lip-synced.

You can't stop Daron Malakian though.

only the group performances of American Idol are lip-synced. Second of all, almost all bands actually perfom.

Reminds me of Muse on LiveN'Kicking:

Its hilarious to me that Ashley Simpson gets caught syncing and her career was pretty much dead, but Beyonce falls down the stairs with her voice still playing in the background in front of thousands and all anyone cares about is if she hurt herself.

I get the feeling if Hetfields voice wouldve kept playing after his pyro incident awhile back there wouldve been a riot lol.

Daron Malakian is an egotistical douch bag who broke up System of a Down. I used to love him, but his new band sucks huge ass donkey balls.

Very true, but he's still amusing.

So, they're NEVER getting back together..?
Edit: Oh yeah and what do you think of Serj solo?

What the hell happened at 3:50?


They muted the music instead of the vocals. That's why they got thrown off and missed the "f*ck you" a few seconds later.

Most pop bands can't play live so it is pretty common, some funny stuff here though

Never, ever, ever, ever judge a band based on a televised performance.

Coming to think of it does it annoy anyone else when a band releases a live DVD but have different songs played at different shows but one continuous audio track? e.g Black Dahlia Murder, Iron Maiden.
