Oops!! Charice Has Some Technical Difficulties

| Filed under: Music MinuteOops!Charice

Ah, the beauty of live television!!

NBC's Christmas at Rockefeller was having some major difficulties last night!

When Charice was announced to sing on stage, a backing track for Boys II Men started playing, leaving the singer speechless on stage.

After about 2 minutes of awkward silence, Charice was finally able to sing Jingle Bell Rock with David Foster on piano.

At least she sounded good when things finally got started!

    my gosh - you'd think it was rocket science to have the correct song play at the correct time……………then again on 2nd thought, if all these "artist" didn't lip synch and had a real band backing them (sara bareilles……hello!!!), this probably wouldn't have happened…….

    She sang great! Nice rendition Charice!



  3. 3

    She nailed it despite the technical glitch! Bravo!



  4. 4

    she's not very talented. she's no jackie evancho. (the girl who sadly DIDNT win on americas got talent)



  5. 5

    I wish they would loose all these back tracks. They sound stupid when there is one singer on stage and backup singers are belting out behind the lip syncing singer. Foster's a genius but these producers are ruining the music business. Raw talent is the best talent. Making The Countess or Sleezy Kim of Housewives fame singers is just wrong.

    Re: April 20th – Charice didn't lip synch here David Foster even used her mic but lol at Boys II Men they got busted



  7. 7

    so here's my question why didn't foster just play the song on piano and she could have sang it? oh wait I know why because she's fuckin lip synching!!!! the saddest thing is people are so used to this sort of thing they're fooled by it.

    CHARICE IS THE BEST FREAKIN KARAOKE MACHINE ON THE PLANET. NOTICE NOTHING SHE DOES ORIGINAL IS RECOGNIZED ANYWHERE. SHE'S FAMOUS FOR DOING OTHER WELL KNOWN ARTISTS' COVERS. SHAME AND LAME!! NOTE HER ALBUM ONLY DID 44K SALES FIRST WEEK. SHE'S DONE AS A RECORDING ARTIST. STICK TO DOING COVERS ON LAME HOLIDAY SPECIALS. TRUTH!!!

    Re: Lurkers Shad – see 7 and don't be so naive…………

    i can just imagine what happened in the control room.
    wrong track starts playing there's mass panic. Charice stands there awkwardly not having a clue what to do because this didn't happen in rehearsal. Director tells david foster to take her mic and say something to placate the automatons down below. "For Godsake David don't let Charice say anything or start singing or the jig is up".

    what David should have said was "this is live tv people but there's nothing live about this performance"



  11. 11

    David DID start playing the piano and you could only slightly hear it because HIS mic was not on, hence why he grabbed hers. IDK. It was glaringly obvious some of the performers lip-synched (i.e. Mariah Carey…it seemed like she wasn't even trying). But it was also pretty obvious others actually sang - Sheryl Crow, Josh Groban. If Charice did lip-synch, she was a hell of a lot better at it than the other offenders.

    Re: Sheriff Rusty – lol why didn't David Foster just play the piano? because there was another song playing, like playing the piano to the tune of Jingle Bell Rock w/ the backing track for Boys II Men would sound good together sheeesh… charice don't need to lip synch because unlike most artists today the girl could actually sing! that's why she became a youtube sensation, she can even sing "All By Myself" LIVE!!! why the hell would she lip synch "Jingle Bell Rock"!!!?



  13. 13

    Re: Lurkers Shad – obviously I meant after they stopped playing the backing track. If Charice sang live then she is the most amazing singer on the planet but honestly I'm pretty sure she wasn't. Let's agree to disagree.



  14. 14

    Re: Sheriff Rusty – obviously the song does not just play to the sound of a piano alone and since there is no band backing them they need to play a track for the other instruments, and that is why foster did'nt play the piano right away!!!



  15. 15

    Re: Sheriff Rusty – Obviously, you have no clue of what Charice is capable of doing… Why don't you visit youtube and search for charice's live performances, and then come back here and let us know if you still doubt that she CAN sing live



  16. 16

    I have heard many REAL singers sing live and they sound just as good as the studio version, and Charice is one of them. There are a TON of vids posted on Youtube of her singing live and the audience always give her a standing ovation. In my opinion, it was the best version of 'Jingle Bell Rock!'



  17. 17

    Re: MileHighGuy – i did and theres no doubt this girl CAN sing live. I never said she couldn't sing live.



  18. 18

    whatta voice!! clap clap clap!!!

    Re: Sheriff Rusty

    She did not lip sycnh as reported…You have to google this girl and you'll have no doubt that she sang LIVE. My God, JBR is a joke compered to other songs that this girl can sing :-)

    Re: grace xo
    u are comparing apples and oranges…totally different genre.



  21. 21

    after further investigation I might have to retract my original statement. This girl can sing. Damn I'm confused!



  22. 22

    To think that charice is lip synching here only tells how good she really is. Amazing talent. To all non-believers, see my avatar! Go Charice!



  23. 23

    LOL

    Re: Sheriff Rusty

    Time will only tell if America will deny this unbelievable talent.

    Re: xcalibur – She'll get there in time. Right now she is just so different from what Americans are used to. But in Japan (2nd largest music market in the world), she peaked at #1 with her single, which in my opinion is not the best song in the world. But it just takes that one good song to really get her noticed. Right now I remain a fan, as i am a fan of great vocals and hopeful that the US pop music scene would finally have more artists who can actually sing. Not just sing, but SANG! I'm so tired of this looks-first-music-second bs.

    Re: xcalibur

    Why so much hatred? Merry Christmas and may God bless you.



  27. 27

    Re: xcalibur – stop shouting!!!



  28. 28

    That was more like ONE minute of awkward silence….but she could have at least SAID something, no? Finally the piano dude was like, "Well if this bitch ain't gonna say something maybe I should!"



  29. 29

    its not her fault

    but she has a beautiful voice.



  30. 30

    Re: sNaTcHqUaTcH – thats why I was suspicious. she could have said how's everybody doing or something. thats why I think her mic wasn't on until David took it



  31. 31

    Re: xcalibur – LMAO…I hope you have a nice big fat HEART ATTACK getting all worked up over her…calm the ffuck down a$$hole!



  32. 32

    Re: sNaTcHqUaTcH – The 'piano dude' is her godfather and he's one of the reasons why she is where she is now…she always looks to him for guidance. She's not some diva who thinks she can just take the reigns and play it off.



  33. 33

    it's not lipsync when there is oneness between the voice and the audience and the whole situation!
    david foster wouldn't smile that pleased, when he expects the prerecorded track that he knows already.
    charice was stellar right at that moment.



  34. 34

    Hey so I actually kinda do think she's lip synching because here it sounds really clear and recorded and plus you can barely hear her accent…but if you watch her other video with the gaga, miley, and michael mash up you can really hear her accent and the sound is different on the mic. it kinda sounds like her listen cover on glee which was obviously recorded and worked on. LOL



  35. 35

    charice has amazing vocals and she would be the last person on earth to do lip synching! gawd do some research and check her million hits videos and see for yourself.

    Anyone who thinks this is lip syncing is mental - LOL

    Re: MStyles

    wow you got that!



  39. 39

    WTF???? IT'S 2007 ALL OVER AGAIN!!! For those who does not follow Charice's career: Charice was discovered on Youtube (by Star King, Ellen DeGeneres, Oprah and David Foster) because videos of her singing Whitney Houston's 'I Will Always Love You' got MILLIONS of hits because everyone THOUGHT she was lip-syncing. 3 years later, she's signed up to a record label, she's released an album, she's been on Oprah (5 TIMES!!), and she's also on Glee so she definitely WAS NOT lip-syncing. to anyone who thought she was lip-syncing at the Rockefeller: that's actually a great compliment and please search her up on Youtube so you wont rely on what other people say and instead judge for yourself.

    Re: pumpkin21

    Yup, this vid (link below) should shut the ignorant critics up once and for all and put this stupidity to rest. And if they don't view the vid and continue with their none sense, then they are the one's who are fake and full of crap, and I might add are deserving of the Darwin Award - LOL.

    She

    hey hey hey.. there is no lip syncing there.. hear the pause and the breath of charice.. she would not lip synced.. i swear. :)



  43. 43

    hey hey hey.. there is no lip syncing there.. hear the pause and the breath of charice.. and you can see that she is putting away her mic (she is doing this to make her sound sound so loud) she would not lip synced.. i swear. :)



  44. 44

    this reminds of mean girls….



  45. 45

    oh my gosh she did not lip sync, dats da most ridiculous joke i've ever heard, charice nver lip sync even she hve colds… hahaha ur funny guys, anyway if she did, she's still great,



  46. 46

    Why would someone as great as CHARICE do a lip sync? Some of you are so quick (not to mention mean) to judge her when you haven't even heard her other live renditions uploaded on YOUTUBE. Has America gone "Judge Judy" on this? If you want facts then what's the use of GOOGLE? Accusing someone of something that is completely untrue is absolutely awful, I'm sorry if Jackie Evancho didn't made it to America's got Talent because stupid Americans chose the lesser talented I guess, but that's not my point here. My point is, why don't you grow the F*CK up AMERICA?



  47. 47

    Probably you can't accept the fact that a simple FILIPINO was given that much attention instead of your TALENTLESS NATIVES who were too busy whoring themselves out through PLASTIC SURGERIES and MAKE-UP!



  48. 48

    Not a hard song to sing. >.>
