    Charice did not not mime at all. There is always exception to that rule or excuse.

    Everyone really DOES have to mime at the parade. If they sing live, then their chords would get damaged because of the cold.

    Kylie is a bore

    Bleh.. Kylie - excuses, excuses. There is pretty much NO excuse for miming in a live performance context. It's the same old story, and Kylie's never actually grown as an artist and expanded herself beyond her adolescent pop-schtick. Why should it be so difficult to sing such simple songs live??? Plain laziness is all.
