‘American Idol’ winner Scotty McCreery has had a few big mess ups this year, one being a microphone malfunction when he was trying to sing the National Anthem at game one of the World Series of baseball, but nothing compares to the lip syncing epic fail that happened to the country singer yesterday.
McCreery has been excited all month about performing in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, saying that he has been watching the parade for years with his family and couldn’t believe that he was actually going to be part of it. Unfortunately for Scotty this special day didn’t quite work out the way he had hoped.
Scotty was caught lip syncing when his voice started singing a few seconds before he was moving his lips or the microphone was anywhere around his mouth. Instead of breaking out into a ho-down like Ashlee Simpson did when she was caught lip syncing on SNL years back, he just went with it and tried to get through the debacle with his head held high.
It’s no secret that all of the songs the singers are performing are pre-recorded, however that doesn’t mean the audience wants to be reminded of it.
Check out the video of Scotty’s mishap and tell us if you think it was really that big a deal.
