Yes, Singers Lip Sync on the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!

If you are watching the 2016 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, something that you might be wondering is why it appears the singers are lip syncing. Well, that’s because they are!

Nearly all performers in the parade have been lip syncing instead of singing live for years for multiple reasons, the biggest one being that floats are moving throughout the parade and having singers perform live would be a logistical nightmare.

Another reason is the cold weather that performers frequently have to face during the parade. It currently is a cool 45 degrees in New York City, while some years the weather is much colder than that.

Just a couple years ago, the band American Authors made headlines after they didn’t even put their microphones to their mouths when their performance on a float started.

Make sure to check out the full list of performers who will appear this year!

    Who didn’t already know this? It is usually some of the worst lip-syncing you will see. Some don’t even bother having a microphone anywhere in site.

    And most continue to lip sync after the parade too at all their concerts

    Tony Bennet was clearly not lip syncing. He messed up his lines of the song.

    The NBC-TV broadcast is not a parade–it hasn’t been a parade for at least 30 years. It’s actually a four-hour infomercial for Broadway shows.
