Janet Jackson is under fire.

A group of fans attending Jackson’s recent show in Brisbane, Australia, were less than impressed. They reportedly left mid-concert because Janet’s vocals weren’t completely live. She also faced similar backlash at her show in Perth earlier this month.

Fox News published pleasant comments from concert-goers. “When Janet Jackson came on it was just a disaster,” one read. “Her sound was just terrible. She would be singing and then all of a sudden just do random stuff.”


One critic claimed there were “audio problems, with her lip-syncing painfully out of sync with the music and her performance lacking energy.”

It’s worth pointing out most artists don’t sing 100% live the entire show because of the immense strain it puts on their vocals. Also, being in the presence of a legend should suffice. Their loss!

Do YOU think it’s a problem if artists lip sync? Let us know what you think in the comments.

    1. First thing I thought of after reading the headline. Now what I can’t wrap my head around is that these artists are big ticket shows. You pay $200-$500 a ticket for a Britney/Janet show and then you’re just going to walk away? 😂😂😂 Wow. These are your idols. I get that they’re disappointed but the least you could do is stick around just for the heck of it. You’re already there anyway. Might as well just finish it. Damn, Australians don’t care for their money. 😂😂😂

  1. I like how the article says she’s being accused of lip syncing lmao damn new fans. Welcome to 1982 🤦🏽‍♂️ Not that she doesn’t sing live (cuz she’s been doing it more since 2015) but c’mon… who doesn’t know that 💡

  2. I feel like Janet’s always had a good reputation for balancing some serious performance/vocals well.. I understand her fans having high expectations and walking out if she’s off but I also understand, ya know, she’s not a superhuman machine.
    That said- Most Broadway chorus performers balance dance and vocals to perfection. Yeah, theres a balance of dancers, singers but the integrity and value of Live is never lost or compromised. A broadway show is always a little electric because (most of it) is live. You Rarely see/hear flaws. I get that artists get lazy with other responsibilities. marketing. but, in all honestly, they should all actually be working on their endurance and stamina because it is possible to maintain regardless of your age and injuries and that’s your job. That’s what you signed up for.

  3. To be fair, it wasn’t HER concert and they wouldn’t have been HER fans walking out. She was the last to perform after a long list of younger (2000’s) performers like Black Eyed Peas, 50 Cent, Fatman Scoop, Jason Derulo etc.
    Her music isn’t really the same type of music as those artists. Most of the crowd would not have known a lot of her music.

  4. Who are these people!?!? Janet is an ICON. She lip syncs prolly because she’s doing all that extricate choreograph dancing. Her fans expect a show because she’s entertaining. We don’t go for her singing and last but not least she’s MISS JACKSON!!!
