Her October Saturday Night Live has become a Lip-synching scandal for Ashlee Simpson
Ashley's October Saturday Night Live will become the worst nightmare for her because during the show Simpson began to sing without actually singing. While Simpson held her microphone far from her face, her drummer accidentally punched up a prerecorded vocal track for her hit, "Pieces of Me," a song which Ashlee had performed in a lip-synced, earlier in the evening. The smart Simpson then chose to cover the gaffe by performing a foot-stomping hoedown before she finally slinking off stage.
Besides, poor Ashley' song was reported like a cross between a political prisoner being tortured and a test of the Emergency Broadcast System, said a commentator on MSNBC.com, Michael Ventre.
