Rascal Flatts admits to lip syncing at ACM Awards

Flatts ACM awards

So did they or didn’t they? 

After Rascal Flatts performed at Sunday night’s ACM Awards, the word on the street was that they had lip synced their performance. Being one who has never been hugely against lip syncing, I didn’t even bother to take a second look at their performance video. 

Well it turns out that the Flatts Boys aren’t even denying that they faked it and that they did it really, really badly.  

The trio tells TMZ

Rascal Flatts tells TMZ … their lead singer Gary lost his voice last week after performing several shows — so instead of cancelling the ACM gig at the last second … they made the call to lip sync.

In case you missed it … the group performed their new single “Rewind” and something seemed off.  Fans were PISSED after the show because they had a hunch the singing wasn’t legit.

The group adds, “We’ve never done it before, and we’re obviously not very good at it.” 

So there you go. For all you lip sync truthers, does the fact that the group admits freely to faking it make it less of a musical crime?
