Worst Things Singers Do When They Sing LiveIt's been a loooong time since I've made aclist so I'll start again with a bunch of new ones.
This doesn't belong. I'm not saying it's O.K but when a singer is lip syncing then by definition they are in fact not singing live.
Some people say: "I would prefer a lip sync concert more than a bad one" and my answer is heck no! Why would someone pay tons of cash for hear a lip syncing concert when they can take the album of that singer and listen to it for free whenever they want? I've paid for watch you singing and even if you sing bad at least you do something but lip sync? Moving the lips and faking? No thanks.
If your excuse for lip syncing is "the vocals are very layered and I want to replicated live", just sing with a backing track.
If your excuse for lip syncing is "the vocals are very editing and I can't hit the notes" then you just exposed yourself.
Good performance, good coreography but... something is not right, without emotions you feel like: "ok the singer is here but he is singing only for money not for entretain us". Singing with emotion is way better, without it the performance is all programmed and kinda lifeless, no feellings. And no you can sing with emotion and technique at the same time.
Singers may get pissed and leave the stage. In my opinion is really childish and annoying.
If a singer needs to leave the stage because they or the audience is in immediate danger, then I have no problem with them leaving the stage. Otherwise, I see no valid excuse to leave the stage.
Why? Don’t your fans mean something to you?
That's because they have a mental breakdown or nervous breakdown during the stage like Jim Morrison!
Some people will justify this with: "but oversinging is just showing your talent more! " No it really isn't, you can show your talent and sing the right notes, oversinging is just annoying and painful to hear.
Depends on the concert you go to. In Rock concerts oversinging or screaming is common I can tolerate screaming as long as it doesn't sound well... whiny...
Looking at you demi lovato
Demi Lovato does this.
If oversinging is annoying undersinging is boring, the singer is not at his/her best at this concert and it makes you sick.
More commonplace in rock and metal concerts. Occasionally screaming is fine, but doing it too frequently is rough on the ears. Plus, it causes damage to the singer's voice.
Isn't this the same as oversinging?
Somewhat, except screaming is more vigorous and requires more effort and range from the singer.
It's ok if you are showing your skills on something that is not singing but when the whole performance is all about dancing and playing? At this point let's do karaoke.
You feel annoyed and you want to leave, you may wait for hours and nothing, they maybe it starts raining DAMN!
