Worst Things Singers Do When They Sing Live

It's been a loooong time since I've made aclist so I'll start again with a bunch of new ones.

The Top Ten

1 Lip sync

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. - DaisyandRosalina

Hey uh, D&R, can you please turn on messages? - NightmareCinema

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. - Skullkid755

They’re not on, @D&R - NightmareCinema

2 Oversinging

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. - DaisyandRosalina

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... - CaptainMowzker

Demi Lovato does this.

What does this mean? - Skullkid755

3 Undersinging

If oversinging is annoying undersinging is boring, the singer is not at his/her best at this concert and it makes you sick. - DaisyandRosalina

4 Bad singing

Of course, it's annoying when the singer sings bad. - DaisyandRosalina

5 Singing without emotion

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. - DaisyandRosalina

6 Leave the stage

Singers may get pissed and leave the stage. In my opinion is really childish and annoying. - DaisyandRosalina

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. - Gg2000

@Daisyandrosalina maybe maybe but It has to be a nervous breakdown that occurs in them during the stage like Jim Morrison or just what you just said EITHER way - Kevinsidis

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! - Kevinsidis

7 More focused on dancing or playing an instrument

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. - DaisyandRosalina

8 The singer comes late

You feel annoyed and you want to leave, you may wait for hours and nothing, they maybe it starts raining DAMN! - DaisyandRosalina

9 Laziness

Like "hey I don't want to do it but I need money" so they barely sing or dance. - DaisyandRosalina

10 The singer screams excessively

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. - Gg2000

Isn't this the same as oversinging? - DaisyandRosalina

Somewhat, except screaming is more vigorous and requires more effort and range from the singer. - Gg2000

The Contenders

11 The singer barfs on stage

Gross. Did Justin Bieber do this?

12 Singing off key
