Beyonce Tries To Sing Live On Today Show

Submitted by: littlemissqt 8 years ago in Funny

Here"s the catch: She thought she was lip-syncing to a pre-recorded track. She was, but someone left the microphone on.

But pretty funny as well.
Have to say I like Beyonce a lot, she`s more "real" than most celebs.

Howard was the first radio host ever to have someone lip sync on his show. I`m telling the truth...

ok im a singer so i actually have a lot of valid input to give.
1. when you are singing on stage, the audience and band are so freaking loud so its super hard to hear yourself at all.

2. its sometimes difficult to sing live even if you have an earpiece to hear yourself because of so much noise coming in the other ear. its fine when your on stage at a bar or outside or something, but in a large audience setting its freaking nuts.

3. often all you can do is sing from the feeling of vibrations in your throat. so u can imagine how hard it is when your allover the stage and dancing, playing guitar, etc. thats why most musicians sing to a pre recorded "live"tape. it hasnt been fixed up in the studio, so it is your live voice. nothing worse than hearing a song that sounds EXACTLY like on the cd. lol

4. i didnt see the performance,but if i know beyonce, she would have shaken her booty like crazy the whole performance. who can sing well when they have to dance like that?

Firstly I`m glad that was fake, because I almost died of humiliation on her behalf. Secondly, I love how everyone`s like "oh she was singing the harmonies". NO she wasn`t for gods sake :D That was just awfully, awfully off key. And any music student etc. saying that it was not is just crazy. But, as I said, glad it is fake.

Thanks peloos12 for the link. It may be a fake, but the fact remains, she`s still lip synching, and that pretty well proves she can`t pull off a decent live performance.

I would never buy a CD of someone I knew didn`t have the talent to perform live.

sounds like its been recorded as a live vocal then put through auto tune and mixed back in with the original instrumental. Producers of the today show would not allow something like this to go out on air.

I just don`t get why she would sing the harmony to her own song... As a musician I`d rather sing the main melody I wrote... Then again main-stream pop artists don`t exactly write their own songs...

i agree she was singing the harmony, if you have the range or can sing somewhat in tune sing the main melody over what she`s singing at least for the chorus and you`ll see that it fits. Its not perfect of course because its live but she isn`t off key. She thought the main melody would be playing as audio so when she`s hitting the high notes she`s just hitting a note above the one in the main melody that harmonizes. Sometimes artists do that rather than just singing the main, don`t ask me why i`m just a music student. its not to say she can`t the sing the main melody because if anything that harmony she`s singing seems more difficult because of all the jumps between notes.

Not all of it just look for a group thats made themselves with their talent and not their looks and not everyone uses autotune.

"I`m just trying to make a point that if this isn`t doctored, there`s no excuse for a professional singer to sound like this no matter the circumstances"

You`re absolutely right. My point is, that while Beyonce is extremely talented, she`s not as "professional" as she probably should be. This goes for most of the people in the music industry these days. Rather than taking raw talent and molding it into something awesome with technique and all that, they throw it into a computer and let it do all that for them. Saves a lot of time and money. The music of today is a joke!

I`m done now too. I see you`re new here, bozo. Post more often, I appreciated your insight on the matter.

"i love all the experts in this thread"

Not positive if I`m included in that, but I probably am. I never claimed to be an expert. Just taking an educated guess from my (very amateur) experiences with making music.

This is my last post, i promise! This is just an interesting topic for me! Anyway, watch the Beatles Anthology on DVD. They SAY they couldn`t hear anything on stage because A. they had no monitors B. Their equipment was awful compared to today`s standands and C. During Beatlemania girls were screaming so loud it overpowered everything. I`m just trying to make a point that if this isn`t doctored, there`s no excuse for a professional singer to sound like this no matter the circumstances.
I`m out!

I thought before I spoke, and I don`t see anything proving my argument wrong. Sure the Beatles may have done it, but the Beatles are on a bit of a different of a plane than I am, or Beyonce even, for that matter. I didn`t say it was impossible, I said it was difficult.

And sorry, but I have a hard time believing that they could hear absolutely nothing but screaming girls, anyway.

I`ve heard Beyonce sing without anything but an interview mic on her (dono the exact term for those, but the tiny ones you wear on your chest) and she sang beautifully. She certainly has talent, and I can`t think of any other reason why she would sound as horrible as she did on here.

The beatles had live performances. You can find them on the Beatles anthology CD and they even mention in interviews they couldn`t hear anything on stage. Or just go to youtube and search for beatles live. You`ll find tons of stuff.

I understand that she probably can`t hear herself sing so that would make it difficult for her to sing on key. HOWEVER, the Beatles, probably the best band in my opinion, had no monitors and couldn`t hear anything due to screaming girls and i`ve never heard a terrible live Beatles song!
(they even played instruments!)

Went back in the forum and saw this point was already brought up...

"People who have been even slightly musically trained, should at be able to listen to themselves perform (without external equipment), and should really have a firm grasp of relative pitch."

You`re right, but if the mic feed isn`t going out to the speakers -- and only the CD version is being played over them -- there is absolutely no way she could hear herself over them. I know from first hand experience that it`s extremely difficult to perform if you can`t hear what the hell`s coming out of your mouth.

She probably should have just actually lip synced, but actually singing makes it look so much more real. Which, by the way, she probably half-assed anyway since she didn`t think anybody could hear it.

Beyonce can definitely sing. It may not be as amazing as she sounds on CD, but like everybody`s pointed out, that`s what Auto-tune is for (which, yes, everybody uses).

I just don`t understand why she was singing like that. My only guess is that it was because she couldn`t hear the actual audio of her singing (and could only hear the CD version that was playing).

The howling dog was a nice touch lol...

Whether they lip sync or not, I don`t care. I listen to all my music on a digitally enhanced CD, so it doesn`t bother me.

What happened to the good ol` days of singing live??

Why would anyone go to a concert, having paid $80-200 for their ticket(s) and just watch someone lip sync the whole time? It`s outrageous! I`d rather just stay home and play the CD.

P.S. If she can`t even tell she`s off key then she blows chunks.

But... Oh I can`t believe I`m gonna say this but it`s SO easy to manipulate a voice and I think that that`s what has happened. Because I know alot of people will hate her but she is an incredible singer and she wouldn`t sing those ridiculous notes that don`t match up at all. ESPECIALLY if you`re a good singer, you can feel that it`s not going right...
So I`m gonna call "manipulated"...

BobbyJenkins: "Y`know, even out of tune it`s actually not that bad. Plus, she probably didn`t have an ear piece in so couldn`t hear herself. It`s difficult to sing in key with the music if you can`t hear your own voice."

Clayboy: "She`s singing like that because she doesn`t have an adequate monitoring system to hear what she`s doing - only the track she`s suppose to be singing with.."

I`m incredibly surprised that anyone can think anything like this is an adequate argument. People who have been even slightly musically trained, should at be able to listen to themselves perform (without external equipment), and should really have a firm grasp of relative pitch. A well trained singer really should be able to sing in key without accompaniment, though it may be a relative key, and not the original. Also, note that it is entirely possible to listen to yourself and the accompaniment without any monitoring equipment. People who can sing do it often.

"This is whats basically happening with Bianca here."

Um, it`s Beyonce, not Bianca. The point is, there are too many "stars" who can`t really sing. They have backups and are covered by music. Some really can, but this is more proof that some are just commercial whores for the record labels.
