Singers Who Don't Sing Live
« on: January 19, 2023, 11:45:09 PM »
I heard today that Mariah Carey and Madonna don't sing live in concerts. Is there anyone else? I refuse to believe Carey doesn't sing live.

Have heard Daniel O'Donnell doesn't sing live these days either. The world has gone to hell and a handbasket altogether.

Wee Uncle Hugo "sings" bits live, when it comes to the high notes he holds the mic out to the crowd as he's fķcked when it comes to them.

So they tell me.

Taylor Swift. I was in Croke Park at a meeting when they were doing sound checks for her last gig there.

I was told by officials there that she sings "live-ish".

I was aghast - but I was told the young wans don't care. They are just there to 'make memories'

I'm old  :(

Isn't there a certain amount of backing track used in just about all performances these days?

There was a documentary on Netflix a while back about backing singers.

Turns out some of the stuff Phil Specter put out in the 60s with girl bands like The Crystals was actually sung, in the studio versions, by Darlene Love, with no acknowledgement or credit.
