I've heard that lypsynching on live shows like this is pretty common, and usually imposed by record companies, producers, etc. The lead of one of my favorite bands was even bitching about this - that he felt really stupid lypsynching in front of an audience who was expecting a live performance (and their live performances are always very unique, so it was extra-stupid). If this is true, the "played the wrong song" excuse would make sense.


That said, it was pretty funny seeing her dance around like an idiot after the screw up. And blaming her band was uneccessary, whether it was true or not. That doesn't win you points with anyone. :naughty:

NEW YORK - Singer Ashlee Simpson (news)'s "extra help" may have been exposed when a "Saturday Night Live" audience heard her voice — singing the wrong song — while she held a microphone at her waist.


Her record company blamed a computer glitch and she blamed her band for Sunday morning's incident, which cut off her planned performance of the song "Autobiography" on the network comedy show.


Simpson had performed her hit single "Pieces of Me" without incident earlier in the show. When she came back a second time, her band started playing and the first lines of her singing "Pieces of Me" could be heard again.


She looked momentarily confused as the band plowed ahead with the song and the vocal was quickly silenced.


Simpson made some exaggerated hopping dance moves, then walked off the stage 35 seconds into the performance. NBC quickly cut to a commercial.


"What can I say?" guest host Jude Law said with Simpson standing next to him at the end of the show. "Live TV."


"Exactly," Simpson said. "I feel so bad. My band started playing the wrong song. I didn't know what to do so I thought I'd do a hoe-down."


Her record company, Geffen Records, said there was a computer glitch. Instead of some pretaped electronic percussion, the recording of "Pieces of Me" started mistakenly performing, the record company said in a statement.


But it sounded suspiciously like a guide vocal that's a common — although almost always unspoken — concert aid. Either the singer "lip synchs" by mouthing words to a backing tape or has a live microphone and sings along to the tape, making the voice sound more powerful than it is.


Such vocal tricks have been used before on the show, making "Saturday Night Live" not entirely live, said a show insider who spoke on condition of anonymity.


A Geffen spokeswoman did not immediately return a call for comment.


Simpson's walk-off joins the lore of other unexpected music moments on "SNL": Elvis Costello (news) stopping and changing songs on live TV, and Sinead O'Connor (news) tearing up a picture of the pope.


I doubt it was a backup voice.. I really do think her entire intention was to fully lip synch. :naughty:

Where the hell is this world going to when every popstar lipsyncs their entire show? Record companies have way too much power over the artists these days.
