A couple of years back, Victoria Beckham's attempts to build herself a serious career as a singer were left in tatters when close inspection of her performances revealed that she was just opening and closing her mouth in time with the words.
We say close inspection. Admittedly, you could peer out the International Space Station and see what was going on.
Now, though, Beckham's performance is starting to look as Kosher as a rabbi-blessed tub of gefilte fish on the Sabbath, when compared with Miley Cyrus. Not only is Miley touring in the guise of someone else, Disney's fictional Hannah Montana, but she also manages to pull off the task of playing parts of the show live while being off-stage:
"After Hannah has completed the featured verse on the duet with the Jonas Brothers, a body double appears approximately one to two minutes prior to the end of the song in order to allow Miley to remove the Hannah wig and costume and transform into Miley for her solo set," the statement continued. "Other than during this very brief transitional moment in the show, Miley performs live during the entirety of both the Hannah and Miley segments of the concert."
In other words, Miley Cyrus has become the first person in history to get somebody else to do her lip-synching for her.
