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.
