I Wasn’t Faking Dahhhling: Mariah Carey Denies That She Was Lip Syncing During ‘American Idol’ Finale Performance
Lip syncing has become such a scandal these days! The latest celeb to be thrashed for allegedly lip syncing is American Idol host Mariah Carey. Last night during the singing competition’s season finale, the 43-year-old mega star performed a medley of some of her famous tracks including “We Belong Together,” “Vision of Love,” “Make It Happen,” “My All,” “Hero” and her new single “#Beautiful.”
The performance ignited some pretty harsh criticism from Twitter users, who strongly believed that the mom of two had actually been lip syncing. Her reps were quick to shut down those rumors though, expressing that Carey even continued performing for fans during the commercial break.
“No she did not lip sync! She sang three times and even sang additional songs for fans in between [commercials],” a representative from Mariah’s Camp told E! News.”
Well, I guess it make sense. The season began with drama, so it’s only fair that it ends with some type of drama and controversy as well. There’s still been no official word on if she’ll be returning next season, but she did express that she really enjoyed being on the show.
