bawbag Horrible. Also, it still gets people on TV...
TeenerTot I have to admit I liked Joseph Gordon Levitt's Rhythm Nation.
Old_Zircon Your average pop singer since the invention of autotune isn't really much better than this.
EvilHomer I'd say your average pop singer since the invention of lip-syncing has been exactly like this.
EvilHomer Checking Wikipedia, it seems that the acts who appeared on American Bandstand were lip-syncing, and from then on lip-syncing was taken as a given. So I guess the only difference between this and everything else on television, is this show was being honest, calling attention to the reality underlying its conceit.
Old_Zircon Yeah, fair enough. If they're dancing there's a goo chance they're lipsyncing at least part of the time.
