Australian fans mad about Britney Spears' lip-syncing?


Words of warning to all singers: Australia does not appreciate lip-syncing one bit.

Australian critics and fans have blasted Britney Spears for lip-syncing on her Circus tour.

Now John Mayer, who is promoting his own album in Oz, is getting into the mix.

He tweeted: "If you're shocked that Britney was lip-syncing at her concert and want your money back, life may continue to be hard for you."

Find out the syncing scoop:

About 100 angry fans reportedly stormed out of Britney's Friday concert in Perth, saying they were disappointed by her performance – and lack of singing — during her show.

Spears also gave Perth fans a generic welcome, never mentioning their city's name.

"What's up, Australia?" she asked from the stage. "How you feeling tonight? It's so good to be here tonight. Your country is beautiful."

Politicians in three Australian states – Western Australia, Victoria and New South Wales – have now called for new laws to force music promoters to disclose whether a concert will be live or lip-synced.

What do you think? And hey, can we do the same thing?

Britney Spears battles negative press in Australia


reportedly is very upset over the lip-syncing brouhaha surrounding her first Australian tour, which kicked-off in Perth on Friday (11/6).

Australian media reported that fans walked out of the Perth show after a few songs, saying Spears mimed her performance, was boring and stiff, and did not interact with the audience, according to a Reuters report.

However, several people in Spears' camp say the reports are overblown and have traumatized the pop star.

"Britney is aware of all this and she's extremely upset by it," promoter Paul Dainty told The Australian newspaper.

"She's a human being. I'm embarrassed, with such a big international entourage here with Britney, to be part of the Australian media when I see that kind of totally inaccurate reporting."

Dainty reportedly said it was a total fabrication to suggest that fans had stormed out of the show as early as the third song.

However, he did not deny that Spears lip-synced during the show. "It's been all over the internet for nine months," Dainty said about the allegations. "This show is about an incredible spectacle, which it is."

Britney Spears Australia Lip Sync Controversy Continues


Britney Spears' lip syncing was causing controversy In Australia even before she arrived for the Pacific leg of her Circus tour and now Spears is reportedly feeling the backlash.

Ticket prices are as much as $1300 for VIP seats and now that Spears has performed her first few dates Down Under, fans and critics are getting even more vicious about the quality of her show, causing Spears to become "extremely upset," according to reports.

Australia's Daily Telegraph reports that Spears holed up in her Perth hotel after fans walked out on her "lackluster" performance over the weekend (a claim her promoter, Paul Dainty, flat-out denies.)

"Britney is aware of all this and she's extremely upset about it," Dainty told The Australian. "She's a human being," he continued. "I'm embarrassed, with such a big international entourage here with Britney, to be part of the Australian media when I see that kind of totally inaccurate reporting."

Britney Scandal Down Under Reignites Debate Over Concert Faking


As a nation, we have clearly settled the question of whether it's okay for Britney Spears to fake a concert. Of course it is. But leave it to Australia to stick their mitts right back in that can of worms.

This past weekend, our beloved national trainwreck set off a storm of controversy down under when it suddenly dawned on fans at a concert that Britney was lip-syncing her songs; "miming" they call it. One critic on hand penned a review which featured disappointed fans storming out and suddenly, the old wounds of our great national Britney conversation were torn open.

The brouhaha has gone so far as to have Australian lawmakers calling for a new law which would require performers to state on their tickets that concert goers risk exposure to non-singing. China apparently passed such a "Name and Shame" law after controversy related to the Olympic opening ceremonies.

Britney Spears gig in Australia: fans storm out


Fans stormed out of a Britney Spears show in Australia because she was miming.

There seems to be a little difference in expectations of pop stars between Australia and the US. None of us would expect Britney Spears to be singing live at a concert or show. We know very well that her dancing means that live singing is not possible: we would just get pants and gasps of exertion, not a note.

It's also true that Britney's singing capabilities in the studio, without the dancing, are not all that strong, but that's another matter. But according to reports from australia that's not how the australians themselves see it. If they've paid for a concert ticket to hear someone sing then they should be hearing someone singing:

But when she was just a couple of songs into the show dozens of disgruntled fans headed for the exits.

Many had not realised that the star, on stage dressed as a lion tamer, was going to mime.

It has to be said that these sorts of misundertandings are not uncommon. Just because the English, we Americans, the Australians and so on speak what sounds pretty much like the same language does not mean that we are all culturally the same at all.

Fan walk out at Britney’s Australian concert causes upset


Britney Spears’s Circus tour caused controversy in Australia before it even opened when the newspapers revealed that the 27-year-old would not be singing live on stage. Now reports have emerged claiming angry fans walked out of a Britney concert in Perth branding her performance “boring” and “lacklustre.”

The woman at the centre of the storm, Britney Spears, is said to be deeply upset by the comments according to her tour promoter Paul Dainty. He said the singer is distressed by the situation because “she’s a human being” adding that the reports of an audience walkabout are untrue and an example of “inaccurate reporting.”

Britney’s tour promoter also defended the singer’s lip-synching explaining that fans were made aware that parts of the show would be mimed due to a demanding dance routine. Mr Dainty said the show is about creating “an incredible spectacle” which is exactly what he thinks they’ve achieved.
