I honestly don’t know what to say about this.
It’s obvious from the second you see the DJ’s gear that he’s going to mime this one… but I defy anyone to watch the whole thing and not feel your jaw dropping further and further with just how cringeworthy it is.
Why on earth did this duet agree to do this? There are no wires coming from the DJ gear! She’s miming vocals that plainly couldn’t be sung by any natural voice, with no microphone in sight!
But for me? The best bit is looking at the crowd, vacant faced, glued to their chairs, clapping along like some studio manager instructed them to before the filming.
I’ve got to be honest though – I also feel some kind of weird admiration for that DJ for actually being physically able to stand there and do that for the full length of the song. I couldn’t do it.
We know people mime sometimes, for all kinds of reasons, but DJs, please don’t insult the intelligence of anyone who cares enough by not even plugging your gear in. That goes for you singers, too – at least have a microphone somewhere nearby…
Epic DJ fail or an acceptable compromise by the act to get its song on TV? Let us know your thoughts in the comments…
