Teaching Old Dogs New Tricks

How long has Diana Ross been around? About a hundred years or so? That being the fact, don't you imagine she would have lip synching down by now?

I watched her highness on the Today show this morning sing a couple of numbers. They were lovely numbers and I was enjoying the performance until Ms. Ross' voice rang clearly through the sound system while her microphone had moved to her hip.

I'm not saying the woman doesn't have the pipes to belt it out, but there was no diminishing of the volume or quality of her voice at all.

Upon closer inspection, it was clear that Diana was pulling the wool over our nation's eyes, and I really thought she would have been better than that.

Apparently climbing those mountains and dipping into those valleys and crossing those rivers for all these years has taken its toll.

Ah yes. The world of lip synching. I'd much rather hear someone sing badly than to watch them try to match up with the audio. I've heard some good singing in the morning - live. Even if it was in the shower.

By the way, I'm a friend of Requelle's and I see where you enjoy the lovely Gerard Butler. Hubba Hubba.
