DOLLY WOULDN'T... WOULD SHE?: Skriking punters are fuming as they come out of Dolly Parton's latest tour, having twigged that Parton is using some sort of backing tape to help her along with her vocals. Using the new standard spin - it's not lip-synching, you know, it's employing a guide track - Dolly has said, more or less, it's a bit much to expect her to drag herself out of her mansion and go on tour, and then to think she'll sing the lot on top as well. And we have some sympathy for her: you're seeing Dolly Parton, in the flesh. Surely that's the key thing?

Now, if she was sending a lookalike down, too... then you'd have grounds for complaint.
