    I think the problem here is not that the performers are faking it either by lip syncing or using autotune, its the fact that the audience generally doesn't care.

    Music videos of the big stars are so synthetic and over produced these days it would be absolutely impossible for an artist to replicate anything similar on a live stage. Added to that the photoshopping of any photographs and similar filtering applied to the visuals of the videos, the whole pop music industry is just a fake industry.

    I've tried to play music to the kids in my classes and any sort of real musicality is almost shunned by the teen kids, they expect squeaky clean over produced bullshit, its not that they prefer it, its all they know and showing them an artist playing a real instrument live is just unacceptable.

    Show them a piss shit band of boys covered in make up and perfect hair dancing in synchrony and that's the music they are familiar with.

    this is what asia pop is like :

    Knew it went on to some extent but didn't realise it was that bad. I don't go to concerts and almost all the music I listen to is on the radio so I don't feel I am getting ripped off because it costs me nothing. Fair play to Elton John for speaking out. One of the very few real singers still around it seems. Don't think Madonna will be inviting him to any of her parties. (">

    i watched a film called 20 feet from stardom that hints on how a lot of what you see isn't necessarily the voice of the singer you see in front of you and that was based during the 50s and 60s but that was more about the people behind the voice it doesn't suprise me that with technology they just change the original singers voice to an unrecognisable level that is impossible to reproduce live

    we all knew it wen't on but it's quite revealing to what extent it's going on
