Former American Idol judge Mariah Carey has been sparking controversy lately as she has been accused of lip syncing many of her recent performances. While many fans have been left wondering why the superstar singer would lip sync, Mariah proved recently that she has still got the chops!

Mariah Carey has been causing quite the stir on the web lately as the singer and mother of two has been accused of lip syncing many of her performances – including the finale of American Idol, and more recently, the BET Awards. While the superstar singer has kept mum on the accusations, she has also proven that yes, she can still belt it out!

At the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular, Mariah made us wonder why she would even bother lip syncing to begin with! Taking the stage, Carey told the crowd: “As President Obama said earlier, today is a day to recognise what makes us proud to be Americans. This next song is a tribute to all the heroes who make us proud,” and then she belted out Hero, and made us all remember why we fell in love with her in the first place.

Mariah also performed her newest single, Beautiful, but it was her performance of Hero that has everyone talking today! Check it out and tell us what you think:

    With all of the tech that goes into creating the right sound for a performance it’s no wonder people see a lag between video and audio during tv performances. She is not the only superstar to grace the American idol stage and appear to be lip syncing. However before showering the web with accusations let’s first put the blame where it belongs and work our way out. 1- The star usually brings in their own tech and sometimes sound board. This will, depending on the board and type of signal transfer, result in delay that makes it look like they are out of sync with the audio. 2 – American idol techs have made soooooo many mistakes thru the years I would NEVER expect them to figure out to delay the video the 150 ms to fix that problem. So let’s stop throwing our stars under the bus in these situations and ask why it looks funny. The answer is usually the production team. Good job American Idol team! NOT!
