10 Lip-Sync Fails More Entertaining Than Beyoncé's Inaugural Vocal Pantomime

When we were kids, we didn't have the Internet. We had to keep ourselves entertained the old fashioned way: arson, black magic and -- our favorite -- lip-syncing. 

Every day after school, we rushed home, popped in the City of Angels soundtrack and pretend we were Nicholas Cage, as we swayed dramatically and pantomimed the lyrics to the Goo Goo Dolls' "Iris." 

So we're not entirely sure why everyone is making such a goddamn fuss about Beyoncé falling back on a safety net at Monday's presidential inauguration. 

If anything, we can think of at least ten instances of obviously-fake singing that are significantly more embarrassing, scandalous and, most importantly, entertaining.

10. Ashley Tisdale

We have ranked the above pop-starlet at the bottom of our list because, well, who the fuck is Ashley Tisdale?

9. Mariah Carey

If you type "Mariah Carey" and "lip sync" into YouTube, you could blow an entire Tuesday night watching every single embarrassing clip. Not that we did. OK, fine, we did. Twice.

Upcoming Events

8. Lady Gaga

Hey as far as we're concerned, if Lady Gaga keeps wearing lunch meat and putting on concerts that cross drag shows with Jazzercise and Cirque Du Soleil, she's allowed to phone in the vox as long as she needs to.
