We guess that NO ONE can escape the wrath of lip-synching accusations on the internet!
Beyoncé faced it after her rendition of the National Anthem at the presidential inauguration of Barack Obama, and now, Mariah Carey has come under fire for her performance medley of her biggest hits on American Idol's 12th season finale last night!
And it was NOT pretty!
After Twitter essentially EXPLODED with criticism over what some viewers perceived to be bad lip-synching, as her voice did not always appear to match the audio during the live feed, the diva's representative quickly issued a statement that DENIES any wrongdoing on her client's part!
In fact, while Mimi DID sing along to a pre-recorded track, as many artists regularly do, her rep is adamant that she "performed with a 40-person choir" and "SANG LIVE."
