Thanksgiving Day Parade Viewers Are Still Mad About Lip Synching Performances

Today's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade featured a bevy of performances from some of music's biggest acts and Broadway's biggest productions, though throughout the parade you could very much tell who was lip-synching and who was not, and fans took to social media to lament how many lipsynched performances were part of this year's festivities. Most of the solo musical performances seemed to be lip-synched, which might not have been as bad if the lip-synching was good, but viewers didn't feel it delivered there either, and we've included some of the reactions to all the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade's lip-synching below.

"It’s okay, the singers always lip sync, so we’re safe"

"Not sure the lip sync could get any worse But alas .... it’s a nice diversion on a very lonely day"

"Feeling like LL Cool J, in Lip Sync Battle."

"Shout outs to AJR for being the only ones to not lip sync their Macy’s parade performance Face with rolling eyes"

"I really hate that the musical performances are so obviously lip sync performances. I mean, I get it but come on. AJR’s was really good though. #MacysThanksgivingParade"

"Few things in life make me more uncomfortable than watching the overly-enthusiastic lip sync performances during the #MacysThanksgivingDayParade."

"I thought they’d at least let Patti sing live... Unamused face #MacysThanksgivingDayParade #lipsync"

The Broadway performances for things like Mean Girls or Hamilton seemed to be live, and hopefully next year we'll get a few more live performances thrown into the mix.
