On Saturday night at the NRJ Music Awards in Cannes, Katy Perry did a stunning rendition of “Roar.” Haha, just kidding. It was terrible. The track she was lip-syncing to malfunctioned leaving her out of sync with the music.
It was so bad that the host eventually shook his head and stopped her mid-performance and asked if she wanted to start over again. She did and actually sang live this time, but still used a backing track. I give the recovery a 6/10. Had there been more cleavage, I would have given it a 8/10. It’s the little things.
Update: NRJ has issued an apology to Katy Perry saying it was all their fault. “Katy Perry was singing live at the NRJ Awards Saturday night in Cannes, but regrettably the wrong mix has been played accidentally which over-rode Katy’s live vocal feed on-air at the beginning of her performance of ‘Roar.’ TF1 & NRJ would like to apologize to NRJ double award winner Katy Perry for this technical problem beyond our control.”
