Last week Mariah Carey performed a medley of her greatest hits on American Idol. Her voice was flawless as she teased us with her vocal range. The diva reminded us of why she's gotten all of her awards. Yet, several media outlets questioned whether Mariah lipped synched.
Mariah's representatives are setting the record straight:
“She ABSOLUTELY DID NOT lip-sync,” said her spokesperson. “She performed LIVE in front of several thousands of people!!!! (and did it 3 times!!).”
The rep confirmed that Mariah did sing to a prerecorded track—a common practice in the music biz even among big-named artists—but clarified that she “performed with a 40-person choir” and “SANG LIVE.”
“No LIP-SYNCING whatsoever! She did 3 takes and thrilled the crowd with singing little songs in between that we’re NOT part of her medley,” the publicist added.
Plus, considering the fact that Nicki Minaj was sitting right there, do you really think she'd give Nicki the pleasure to be able to say that she lip synched. Not after their issues on that judging panel. Moving on...
In case you missed Mariah's performance. Watch it below.
