Feb. 28th, 2006 @ 09:47 pm Oh Ricky!!
I meant to post this a couple of days ago, and apparently lapsed into a coma. Did no one notice that Ricky Martin did the worst lip sync ever in the closing ceremony of the Olympics? On at least 3 occasions he started singing and magically the mic was no where near his mouth! He only made it worse by trying to get to the 'singer pose' as quick as possible. I found it so upsetting I had to mute him so I could continue to ogle.

I never saw the Ashlee Simpson SNL episode (it is SNL after all) but where's the fallout? Where's the outrage and uproar? Why does Ricky get off unscathed?
Who does she think she is?

In the SNL thing, Ashlee Simpson screwed up and through a little bitchy temper tantrum and blamed the band and walked off stage.

I didn't see the RM performance, but my guess is that he continued performing all the way to the end.

hehe - I knew something looked wrong, but just couldn't figure it out.

Okay so I did read up on the AS thing, and while it was a huge gaffe - wrong song and all, there is still the fact that bitchy tantrum or no, there was still a lot of flack because she was 'exposed' as a lip syncher. Called Milli Vanilli and there wasn't a word in any mainstream press or entertainment rags about his performance. Even if it is accepted that these events are lip synched, it was a horrible performance.

You were still recovering from the broken heart Bode Miller gave you? What the hell happened to that guy? Or was it the hockey team? I know peeps up here are still whining about Canada's loss.

Canada has the best medal showing ever, but all you hear is how the 'Canadian team sucked' ya, did you see the women's hockey game? Buttheads.

It's generally accepted that big arena spectacles like half-time shows and closing ceremonies are lip-synched.

But it was still a bad performance - you think someone would have commented...

What I don't get is why in the HELL Ricky Martin was there in the first place!!! The performances are to be done my people from the hosting country (Italy) OR people from the next hosting country (Canada). Ricky is neither one of these and shouldn't have been there at all.

I so can't get used to Avril as a blonde. It just ain't right!

It did kinda puzzle me too, but as eye candy it didn't bother me that much. *g*

Is it possible that this was one of those events where the people in the stadium heard live singing and TV viewers got the recording? I've seen that happen before.

hmm - I don't know - it was quite obvious when he was supposed to be singing but wasn't that he hurried to get the mic to his face...

We just watched it the other night and I didn't really notice anything out of the ordinary. Maybe I'm not attentive enough.

You missed out on the Ashlee Simpson one. It was one of the few times I actually thought to watch SNL and I was so glad I did. I couldn't stop laughing when the track started and she just looked stunned. I'm not sure how Ricky got away with it, other than maybe people genuinely don't care much about him anymore? But someone must if he was at the Olympics.

Not care about Ricky! How can you give voice to my deepest fears? *g*

I am sad now that I missed out on the AS episode, but I so can't bring myself to watch that show!

Honestly, Ricky was quite the man back in the Livin' La Vida Loca days. He even had a bit of yum working when he was with his second album, but now he's just not doing it for me anymore.

I think the SNL episoe with Ashlee is on the net somewhere. I'll try to find a link when I get home from work this evening (if I can remember). It's so fun!
