Of course you've heard the recordings of Britney Spear's actual voice while performing her act.
Lip-syncing is actually a common practice in many stage performances, due to the difficulty in managing breath pulsation while leaping about. That leads to questions about the artists' actual ability to sing at the quality level of the recording being played during the performance. In these cases, you are basically just watching a portrayal of the song being sung as the dance number takes place. The artist may be holding a microphone that is not connected at all to the sound system at the performance. The audience might as well be listening to the artist on a CD or mp3, but they happen to be paying $75 to see the star "live".
I don't know of any such recordings of Michael Jackson lip-syncing his performances.
It's nearly impossible to jump and land, run around, and dance like Michael Jackson did during his performances without at least some bumpy sounds from your body jostling around. Your breath pulsates when your body jostles.
It may be that Michael trained very hard at both singing and dancing simultaneously and was able to actually pull that off. He did start out singing AND dancing at the same time at a very early age.
Perhaps others here know more background on how MJ managed to NOT lip-sync while performing the way he did, if that is the case.
Just to see how nearly impossible it is to do that, just try to hold a steady note and jump around, run around, and dance like crazy. I don't know how he did it.
Fun song! Wish I understood more of it... LOL
