Usher Lipsynchs His Way Through Jimmy Kimmel

| Filed under: UsherJimmy Kimmel


During a performance of DJ Got Us Falling In Love on Jimmy Kimmel, Usher went in and out of singing and mostly relied on the recording to provide the music.

We love this song, we love the dancing, but we don’t love half-assed vocal performances!

C’mon, Ushaboo! Wow us!

    Just as he lip synced through his MTV performance. Sad thing is, he's so out of breath while dancing, he can't even lip sync well.

    You might want to change the title of this post. On the part that is recordings (mainly the chorus) he is not mouthing the words which is what lipsynching is, and the rest is him singing live, most of it is live. He is not trying to act like it is him singing when they are playing the recorded part. You should watch the whole video.

    Since when do you not love half-assed vocal performances? You always post shitty overly auto-tuned pop crap on your site.

    Thats all he's been doing for the last few years. The backing track is always doing more singing then Usher is. It's not like Usher can't sing. We've all heard him. Him obviously isn't in the condition anymore to both sing and dance at the same time. Unfortunately his dancing has gotten kind of the same same all the time now. He'd be better off to do less dancing and more live vocals.

    who cares I just like seeing him work that thing!!!

  7. 7

    He didn't lipsynch at all. He never once pretended to be singing when he wasn't actually singing…He actually seemed to sing a bit more of the song this time than he did at the VMAs…

  8. 8

    he did this on the americas got talent finale too and it SUCKED!

  9. 9

    He's lame anyway, i fail to se why people like this talentless manwhore.

  10. 10

    agree with mommy123. He is singing live for the most part.

  11. 11

    Its funny how critical everyone is but I would like to see you all get up there and sing and dance like that . HE is amazing and talented. I know I would not be able o do that it would turn into a comedian show not a music concert lol.

  12. 12

    when you dance so intensly like this, you really cant sing as well.
    gaga does it but she does a few dance moves. usher REALLY INTENSLY DANCES.
    love em three tho.
    LG-MJ- usherr.. sorta. but hes pretty awesome.

  13. 13

    I was very disappointed with Usher. It's great to have all the MJ dance moves,but seriously. We have to bring back Live performances. I don't care if I hear a bad note or two,I want to hear some emotion…

  14. 14

    he usually does on tv, but he doesnt during concerts which is what counts. lay off perez. i wanna see you dance your ass off and sing live. its not like was just standing there

  15. 15

    perez if u dont like half-assed vocal performances then maybe u should call out gaga because she does the same thing she relies on her backtrack for all her songs and her dancing i dont think u can call dancing.at least usher is dancing his ass off.at least when britney and usher is using a backtrack or lip syncing they are dancing there asses off.and haters dont say usher cant sing and thats why he is lip syncing cause that is a false statement.

  16. 16

    Perez..I wanna see you sing your ass off while dancing an very upbeat song. Trust me..not that easy….

    Almost all of the current generation's "musicians" are talentless hacks. Their music is a product, not art. Its all built in a studio with teams of writers, studio musicians, auto tune and other editing tools. Sure it all sounds acceptable on CD or MP3 but when these "artists" are asked to perform live they're forced to lip synch and pretend that they actually have the ability that they pretend that they do. Why are people even surprised by this any more.

  18. 18

    He did the same thing on America's Got Talent also….what he should have done was have backup singers sing those parts where his voice is in the background. One thing I did notice WHEN he was actually singing was that he was out of breath from dancing so hard.

  19. 19

    Another Britney!!! I purchased tickets for his Vegas concert…I think I'll give 'em away now. and btw, his VMA performance was great on the dancing, but disappointed by him not singing the song…it was obvious:\

  20. 20

    Ushaboo? No that doesn't sound a little racist…

  21. 21

    lip-synching just like all the other pop singer garbage you post on here, so why are you hating on usher all of a sudden? what about your little bieber fever, never heard him sing live. probably because he SUCKS.

  22. 22

    did the same thing on the vma's and america's got talent….it was a disappointment.

  23. 23


  24. 24

    He did the same thing on Ellen… He wasn't trying to hide it either. He is the self proclaimed Michael Jackson of today! Yeah, right!

  25. 25

    He did that even worse on Ellen. I mean, pick your skill dude, sing or dance. If you can't do both at the same time then stop trying! Loser.

  26. 26

    Usher made every other act at the VMA's look like amatures. He is so talented.

  27. 27

    Both he and Justin Beiber lip-synched their way through their VMA performances. Lame!

  28. 28

    you can tell he is singing live,

    you can tell where he is singing and where the recording comes in

    he is talking to the audience.

    you can tell he is not lipsinging.

    mommy123, pretty much explained it

  29. 29

    Idk if he lip-synched or not, but who cares. He still put on an amazing show. And btw its hard to sing and dance at the same time. You should try it, if not stop judging him.

  30. 30

    woooww first off he's clearly not lip syncing. I'd like to see half of you try to sing and dance without being out of breath. and how can anyone say he's talentless? clearly you have no idea what talent is because usher is once of the most talented people in this world. jealous is all you haters are.

  31. 31

    everybody used it. He is dancing a lot! Even LADY GAGA DO IT! so???? todos lo hacen!

    Usher is no Michael Jackson. Michael Jackson's dancing had incredible soul and connected with his audience. Usher is just a show off. The same with his image. His 'confession' was postured and embarrassing, lacking the fun of the rappers he was competing with. Usher's brag always trumped his swag. He's over and his performances this past few weeks show off his desperation.

  33. 33

    They all lip sing now Britany Spears never sings not even when she records ,,,,,,,Miley Cyrus ..never sings either ….they all suck

  34. 34

    Perez I'm sure you couldn't dance like that and sing at the same time… at least we know he can sing and isnt auto tuning his songs

  35. 35

    That was horrid. How can anyone buy his music! What a loser….

  36. 36

    I wouldn't say lipsynching…I'd say T-Paining

  37. rbee says – reply to this


    Ok so you will report this but you wont report Beaver lipsynching at the vma's??????!!!!!!!!!

  38. 38

    Rock doesn't rock anymore - and neither does pop. PH why criticize this bad music (it's no more plastic and generic than all the rest) but not talk about the music revolution , Post-Bands music and the art revolution going on in Dallas. The entire anti corporate art movement is going on and you and your readers are missing it! New century, time for something more than last century music and arts.

  39. 39

    He didnt sing for the MTV Awards or the Americas got talent finale as well. He does concentrtate on the dancing, but we want to see him sing too!

  40. ONIT says – reply to this


    Since his performance at American Idol I haven't seen anything else from him. I know, dancing is demanding and as a well-known dancer everybody expects him to do some great dancing but I'd rather have less dancing and more live singing.

  41. 41

    he at least tries to sing when he can. have you ever tried singing and dancing like that all at once? maybe you should focus on his protege Justin Beiber. He lip synched his ENTIRE performance and didnt even dance better than his back ups. At least there is some honest talent behind usher. as for justin, he doesnt deserve to be in the same room with any artist.

  42. 42

    he should just to simpler dance moves with his backing dancers doing the more energetic onces. hes a SINGER, wed rather hear him sing than see him dance. its a shame as he is very talented and its a great song.

  43. 43

    I am no longer an Usher. I think most of his new music is Lame and his appearances are lackluster when you compare it to his work before he got married. I feel like being married robbed him of his creative edge. So sad.

  44. 44

    OK…there is a diference in having backing vocals that you dance to and lipsyncing! Usher doesnt lip sync.

  45. 45

    Usher gives one of the better high intensity dancing while yet singing performances of any music artist out there. Nobody sings every single word! Can you be any more critical?

  46. 46

    Perez I don't get you. He did the same on the VMA's, if not WORSE, yet you called that an amazing performance?

    He sucks…

  47. 47

    Im not that big a fan of usher,in fact i sometimes DISLIKE him.. But i like this song.. N u know what,this performance was fine.. He was singing all the way thru except for the chorus part.. Even then he was singing in a lower key..
    It would be really hard to sing the high parts while dancing n out of breath..
    He was a LOT better than iv seen a lot of other artistes..
    N he was NOT lipsynching because he was not pretending to sing when he wasn't..
    I thought the performance was pretty good..

  48. 48

    I dont count this as lipsyncing…people like usher and beyonce who dance while singing usually dont pretend to sing while the track is playing in the background, they just do their thing and dont move their mouth, which is slightly lame, but understandable. its shocking to me though, how clear it is that the majority live performances are lipsynched, but maybe no one can tell, or they just dont care? nowadays im pleasantly surprised if the artist isnt lipsynching!

    why is he so desperate to dance? i know you want to be the next michael jackson (and you won't be) but come on! just sing and stop lipsynching most of the song.
