Girl You Know It's... A Lot More Than You Realize
Most of us remember Milli Vanilli and Ashlee Simpson,their careers ruined by mishaps with playback systems that exposed their lip syncing. While the public may be quick to judge an artist for not singing live, they might not know how much actually goes into a live performance these days, especially a televised one.
They might not know that over the last 20 years, everyone from Rihanna to Rascal Flatts uses playback in live performances. Further, even though the post-traumatic stress of these very public disasters runs deep in the minds of the concert-going populace, they might not know that without recorded playback, many of their favorite artists wouldn’t be able to perform at all.
