    Is the song really live?

    Sadie Says:

    Do they lip sync at all of their concerts or just this one because it’s going to be on DVD?

    Emma Says:

    Naya Rivera definitely sang this live at every show, but this video has her studio version dubbed over it :/

    @Dina:

    No the actual audio has been pasted over with the studio version of the song, because they don’t want that to be heard before it’s actually released.

    @Dina I think it is. Naya is a great singer, especially live.

    It’s sick that Glee is using Amy’s death to promote their movie. I went to the concert and I’m pretty sure Naya lip-synched. Only a few of them sang live. Watching someone lip-synch to her song is hardly a great tribute to Amy and it shouldn’t be used to promote the Glee movie.

    Of course they have to crap on everything. I’m so glad that the majority of credible artists declined to have their music be butchered on this show.

    How is it a “Tribute” if it was filmed WAY before Amy’s passing?!
    How disgusting for Glee to USE Amy’s death as a way to promote their nasty little movie!!!
    Sick….i

    Celia – if someone is lip synching to their own voice it is still them singing. Duh! That is Naya’s voice, if it happens to be pre-recorded beforehand it is still her singing. And I went to the concert in Toronto and I do not believe they were lip synching.

    @Emma: please she didn’t sing it live at most of the shows. Maybe two or three tops.

    Yea she’s lip-synching, but it’s NAYA’S voice. It’s not like it’s Naya lip-synching to Amy’s voice….everyone needs to calm down

    WTH r u talking about Says:

    @Alaia: by the majority you mean 4 or 5 . Most have given permission. Please they have sung everyone form The Rolling Stones, Queen, Gaga, Billy Joel, Elton John, Bon Jovi, the Supremes, Neil Diamond, Barbra Stesiand, The Pretenders, The Police, Madonna, Van Halen, Springsteen, Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Paramoure, Bob Marley, The Carpenters, My Chemical Romance, George Thourghgood, Adele and Fleetwood Mac. Too bad none of them are creditable.

    Naya is sooooooo AWESOME!

    Alaia Says:

    @WTH r u talking about: Most of those artists are mainstream artists who are probably forced into having their song being on Glee by their record producers/people who want the money. I don’t think we will be hearing Radiohead on this show any time soon. PJ Harvey? Don’t think so! K.D. Lang, The Smashing Pumpkins, Paul Weller, The Smiths, The Strokes, Pixies, The Flaming Lips, M83, Velvet Underground or Van Morrison? Don’t think so!

    @WTH r u talking about: Oh, and Paramore and My Chemical Romance? Credible? LOL.

    I watched some videos of the concerts and she seemed to be singing live, I don’t know why they replaced this with the studio version, hopefully they don’t do it in the movie.
    It’s really sad how Ryan Murphy and whoever else is responsible for all that is using Amy’s death to promote the film, they don’t have to do that and shouldn’t have.

    Just me Says:

    Well….its not that much about promoting the video,but since this song is one of the biggest hits on tour they had to mention somehow Amy..I dont see it as using her death… its just it was on the series…it was on the tour and yes it will be on the movie…so somehow after all they have to pay tribute to her as an artist who unfortunately is gone now….the show must go on… nd i like how Naya Rivera sings it…she has this smtg in her voice that sounds so sexy…
    as for the ones who are more concerned if she sings live or not…gosh ppl get over urselves nd enjoy it…or just change the channel …why sitting her nd wasting time bitching ?:)

    tara Says:

    @Emma: she definitely did NOT sing it live in any of the shows, neither did most of the singers on glee, Amber sang live…you can clearly hear the difference, just watch any of the clips on youtube, they all sound exactly the same…sorry to burst your bubble

    I think it’s pretty tasteless to be promoting a movie off the back of Amy’s death.

    You can call it a tribute as much as you want but your still selling something at the end of the day.

    @Ortiz: You must be blind as well as stupid because there is nothing white or Spanish about this girl she is strictly Puerto Rican and that is not SPANISH!!!

    Not German/Not Spanish Says:

    NAYA RIVERA DOES NOT LOOK GERMAN OR SPANISH! Sorry to burst your bubble, I’m sure you’re from Puerto Rican decent this is why you keep posting about her being German and Spanish and if she is she does not look it at all!!!!!!

    Gigi Says:

    I don’t see any Spanish or German in her either. Where is it? PuertoRicans always want to claim being white when it is evident that they are not. Just because it might be in her genes doesn’t mean it shows, regardless she is sorta cute.

    Darla Says:

    @Not German/Not Spanish: Naya herself has said that she’s 50% Puerto Rican, 25% German and 25% black.

    I don’t know why they dubbed the studio version over the video. Also, she has a headband on that keeps on dissappearing throughout the video. lol I’m guessing they edited two different shows together?

    I have to admit, as a fan of Amy I loved that they dedicated the Valerie performance to her.

    Helena Says:

    @Darla: She can claim anything that still doesn’t make it true she is just a Puerto Rican and is ashamed to admit to it so she tries to fancy up her so-called phantom ancestry to make herself sound more interesting. There isn’t a single German or Spanish feature on this very Puerto Rican looking woman and that is the truth. Spanish & German people are European White with Euro features which she doesn’t have.

    Antonio Porto Says:

    Puerto Ricans were enslaved by the Spanish which explains their Spanish surnames. The slave masters always named their property after themselves to denote ownership of their human chattel. Slavery lasted longer in Puerto Rican than it did anywhere else in the western world and it didn’t end until March 22, 1873, nearly a decade after it ended in America. So just because a person has a Spanish sounding name doesn’t make them Spanish. Shaquille O’Neil speaks English and has an Irish last name but that doesn’t make him Irish. There is a big difference between Spanish people and Puerto Rican people…Spain did not make Spanish people slaves. Think about it.

    jdub Says:

    @ajpee: I was at the filming of the movie too and I’m pretty sure they were singing along with the voice overs in the background. Idk if you noticed this, but a prime example is when they were performing Loser Like Me and they kept getting horrible feedback in their ear pieces (the crackling they heard in their piece was the crackling everyone in the audience could hear over the mics) and had to stop the performance (Amber looked to Lea and said “what the fvck was that?!”)….they lip-synch the songs for quality reasons, because no one wants to hear them huffing and puffing since they dance so much. And they definitely have it dubbed for the movie. Oh and Naya is an amazing singer, but her incident in London proves that she lip-synchs during Valerie….the voice over kept skipping and her mic went out, so she got embarrassed and ran off stage and didn’t perform the rest of the night. I’d do the same too. That’s extremely embarrassing! Anyways, I love Glee and people need to stop hating. Most of your favorite artists lip-synch during concerts….Michael Jackson is known as one of the best entertainers and even he lip-synched
