Mariah Carey was singing 'Touch My Body' on Good Morning America' when the backing track stopped, prompting people to speculate that she did a lipsynch.
Mariah Carey appeared on Good Morning America yesterday, April 25, singing three songs from her recently-released album, "E=MC²". She opened the set with "Touch My Body" before going with "That Chick" and "Bye Bye". On the first song however, she received technical fault, which many speculate as a caught-in-the-act lipsynch attempt.
Carey who was dressed in bright pink mini dress, was singing "Touch My Body" when the intro that serves as the backing track stopped abruptly. Another faulty also occurred towards the end of the song when she turned around to her backing singers and said "Stop singing my part now baby". The remaining two performances went smoothly.
Previously, Carey was also reported lipsynching during her promotion of the album in Europe. She also happened to sing "Touch My Body" on "Paul O' Grady Show" and German's reality show "Deutschland sucht den Superst" when rumors of her singing on top of a played track erupted.
Meanwhile, Carey's appearance on GMA has sparked controversy prior to the album's release. Allegedly Carey and her manager Benny Medina have agreed to promote the album on NBC's "Today" but they went the other way to sign a deal with GMA which is owned by NBC's rival network, ABC.
