    Question: how do you know the shinee stage in inkigayo was lip-synced? I can’t really tell the difference cause Jjong’s not there…

      Personally, I don’t even know. With SHINee, it’s so hard to tell since they’re normally on point anyways, and this backtrack is pretty loud. I’m mostly going off of precedent–SME groups usually lip-sync their first week everywhere but Music Bank–and that there were less of those breathy moments or deviations here than in their Music Bank performance. Of course, they could have just improved. I just don’t even know.

      There is always something…different about their lip-synced performances? I can’t exactly pin-point what though O_O
      I guess you start noticing it after watching a ton of their performances or something, I’m not sure…
      Sorry! Not much of a help, am I? xD

      Usually I can tell by Jjong.. since the way he ends his lines are different, and sometimes he conveniently growls (or yips)

      But since he’s not there.. uhh Key sometimes is too loud, Taemin is raspier.. Onew I can never tell unless his voice cracks..

      It’s like this different sound. When you sing into a mic live it sounds different. Watch enough live vs lip-synch vs good lip-synch+backtrack and you’ll be able to tell. Just takes some time. Some lip-synchs can be really good because they’ll record another version for live.

      Though this performance it’s very obvious that there lip-synching.

      Usually, in live performances, I notice that people who actually sing tend to hang sharp on their lines. It probably has to do with the back tracking and not hearing themselves sing. It’s not a perfect method, but it helps a lot when you can’t seem to hear breathiness or the other stuff people mentioned. Few people are ever truly in tune when singing and dancing at the same time–they’re very close, but not quite.

      The best example would be Jaejoong’s opening lines in Mirotic, he always ends that line very clearly sharp during live performances.

        I just realized, History’s debut would work as well, but not so much, because there isn’t a lot dancing involved.
