If it's any consolation, I felt like a dirty old man too after thinking she looked hot. And I'm only 20.

I'd also like to point out that from looking at her I thought she was atleast 17. Anyone else agree?

I was pretty sure she was lip synching at first, but you could hear the mike's static in a couple spots. Besides, she sang last night at that event, and she apparently sang amazing there too.

Yeah she did a very good job, I just don't like the song anymore after it was played at my Uncles funeral, but her rendition was really good. And I do not think she was lipsynching.

She did lip sync. You could tell by the amount of times her voice dipped. The sound was way too clean for it to be live in those conditions and in the open air. I don't care how good you are, no one can sing that well live. Just think back to how clean it was for Shania Twain during last years grey cup final.

I don't think Wayne or Janet would allow lip-syncing anyway.

It wouldn't be something to be proud of. They would likely rather see her stumble through a song than fake it.

She did good.

That was lip sync all the way. Very obvious too, both from her sync performance and the overall sound.

lip sync. it was still a nice touch to the game though.



FWIW, I thought she looked 18.

I dunno, for someone supposedly lipsynching you sure could see a lot of frosty breath coming out of her mouth. If you're just mouthing the words, wouldn't you see little if any like the Shania Twain debacle?

Personally, I think it was the real deal.

She sang but she had background vocals that were playing. You could tell because for the notes that I noticedshe closed her mouth but the note went on. Shania did the same thing last year. It's just too cold to have proper vocals.

Could that not be just a delay w/ the audio? I know that when I listen to the Oilers on the radio while watching them at the same time on TV, there's about a 1 second delay between what the radio guys are describing and what's actually transpiring on the ice.

Anyway, I don't really care either way. Whether it was real or taped, what's not in dispute is that:

a) She has a wicked voice.
b) Her looks came from the Jones side of the family, and that's a good thing.

It had to be lip sync. I can't imagine any singer sounding like that if it was live. I think anyone whose been to a concert would agree with me (unless it was a Britney Spears concert or something, those stupid pop stars always lip sync). In any case, she still has a pretty damn good voice. The thing about Shania was that they used the radio recording, which made it painfully obvious that she was lip syncing. To this day I can't understand why they did that. Atleast in this case, you could suspend disbelief.

She sounded quite real, both last night and tonight. I think there's a future there, especially with the contacts I'm sure she has. There's your music-video superstar for 2007 I guess. I knew she was 14 because I remembered reading her age last time she was here. I'm thinkin Wayne's gonna have a lot of work on his hands fending off the pursuers.
