So did Janet Jackson Madonna Paula Abdul and Michael Jackson (not in every concert/tour but obviously in the 90s-2000s) and lots of other 'respected' artists.

Not validating or disparaging it. But it is what it is.

Why would I "don't want to admit to yourself that he lip-synced." and "you're too in denial to face the truth."?? It's not that my life's happiness is hinging on whether something is live or not. I couldn't care less of what you think is sung live or not (it's just ironic coming fom an MJ fan), as it's just that, your aussumption. So far it's you in denial, denying yourself out of a great concert that I and thousands of others enjoyed.



Fair enough. I love me some Lenny, so I ain't hating. His new record is great and his back catalogue speaks for itself, imo. Just was genuinely shocked/disappointed to see him lip-syncing in a concert. Saw a recent setlist and the show looks pretty cool, so I'm still tempted to go see him.

I'll go see Lenny when he makes his way back to Toronto. I've seen him 6-7 times and he always puts on a great show, but I will be watching for any lip -syncing, and if I see it, I won't go see him again. His latest cd is excellent and I agree that his back catalogue speaks for itself. He's written some really great songs over the years. I love the Johnny Cash song on his latest and the story about that is very moving.



I saw Lenny in Toronto when I was in the studio audience for an interview many years ago. I didn’t get to see his show though so lucky you!

Well I think we've established that he does lipsync parts of "Low". As for why, only he knows for sure but I'd guess its something to do with the fact that the chorus is sang in a higher pitch than his usual style. So perhaps he doesn't feel comfortable performing that live.

Low was a great song though, wasn't it? Should've been a massive hit for Lenny. Raise Vibration was his best album since 5, imo.

I actually prefer Strut but Raise Vibration is really good. I liked how Michael Jackson had a little cameo on Low too.

I liked the first half of Strut, but felt like it ran out of steam half way through.

Might be just that the chorus line needs to be sung exactly the same way each time to be effective.

I checked out some live footage of him on Youtube because of this thread and Lenny's live vocals are really close to the studio versions in general.

Going to see him in a few weeks. Pretty excited regardless of an occasional "support" track. You know, Prince used them too in the mid-90s ("Now" on The Beautiful Experience TV special, anyone?).

Got my tickets to Lenny's show in TO in Sept. Should be good. I will report back to let you know if I suspect any lip-syncing. Really looking forward to seeing him.

I've seen him at least six times and never noticed lip syncing, I would have as I was always in the first 10 rows.

Haven't seen him in the last 10 years but he always put on an excellent show.

Hope he is not, that would be dissapointing.

Watched a video of him on his farm in Brazil and realized I really didn't need to know more about his personal life.

I paid for a live concert performance not a posing performance. Artist should be obligated to tell concert ticket buyer(s) if the lip-syncs or not.

Yeah, I get the impression he does it a lot from the videos I've seen. Some people can't see it or refuse to, but at the end of the day, if it was easily detectable then these artists wouldn't do it. It fools a LOT of people. They do it because they can get away with it.

A good rule of thumb for telling if someone is faking it is: if you have to ask if they are lip -synching, then they usually are.

Lenny would love to tell you about the stuff he owns
http://www.youtube.com/wa...aOU4_szscw

Please buy more tickets to his shows so he can buy more stuff, while he sings through his muted microphone (hairbrush-and-mirror style). Please do come again.

In the meanwhile, feel free to listen to some MJ lip-synced tracks. You can start with his snoozeworthy Superbowl performance.

Just to clarify, I am aware that I have an MJ picture in my avatar. I hated it when he lip-synched too. But at least when he did it he was hanging off a crane or dancing his ass off. What's Lenny's excuse?

I wasn't targeting my comment at anyone in particular...except the artists. MJ has lip-synced plenty of slow numbers (Heal The World at the Superbowl, for example). So he was cheating the fans paying big money to see him perform live too.

Plenty of others have done it too. I think it's terrible every time I see it.

I saw him at the Palladium in Los Angeles late last year. He lyp-synced "Low" along with some other songs. I was really surprised eek

Saw Lenny Tuesday night and he uses pre recorded back ground vocals for sure but he also sings live over them. He also plays guitar live but majority of solos are left to Craig Ross. Saw him 12 months ago and same stage and similar set list. Very well rehearsed and delivered. He knows his limits and delivers a decent show. Those that followed Prince were spoiled where his bands knew over 200 songs and allowed him to improvise depending on the energy of the crowd
