NEW YORK - It’s synch or swim for Ashlee Simpson on her second go-round on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.”
The vocally disparaged singer will perform this weekend, almost a year after the “SNL” audience heard her voice _ singing the wrong song _ while she held a microphone at her waist.
Even though lip-synching has been around for years, the incident resulted in Simpson being lampooned as an example of today’s style-over-substance culture.
Simpson’s manager-father, Joe Simpson, has said she used “extra help” because acid reflux disease had made her voice hoarse.
The 21-year-old singer will perform songs from her upcoming album, “I Am Me,” according to Simpson’s Web site.
I kinda see why she had to lip-synch. But it was wrong of people to freak out just because she lip-synched.
