Brandy's Sound System Crashes

11/12/2007 4:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Was pop singer Brandy doing her best Ashlee Simpson on Sunday, or did someone just forget to pay the electric bill?!


Either way, her performance at the annual Sensationnel Hair Idol competition (we're not kidding!) in Washington D.C. quickly turned chaotic, when both music and lyrics abruptly cut off midway through a performance of "Who Is He to You."

"Brandy absolutely wasn't lip-syncing," her rep tells TMZ. "She was singing live." After briefly being joined on stage by 5 year-old daughter Sy'rai (who she almost forgot on stage-- paging Britney!) and lil' bro Ray J, Brandy sang an a cappella version of "Almost Doesn't Count" and then wrapped up her set by performing "Full Moon."

I was at the show doing photography while my co-ceo was doing the video tapping of it. First, it wasn't a weave idol, it was a hair show and a lot of companies was there. Trust me, if it was just a weave show it wouldn't be done at the huge convention center. Not too mention the place was packed, and some people couldn't get in. I have never heard of a has been type show giving out over $40,000 in prizes. In fact, what is the cash amount for american idol? Right.....
Everyone has said it before, but she was singing over her voice, she had an accident...So did I... Anyways... The only point I want to make is do your own research, then judge... Even if you feel the same way, just let it be what you think.
Anyways, the girl was dancing her ass off. I didn't know until I saw her in person. Her, her daughter's, and her brother's clothes were pretty fly so she has some kinda money. And she presented herself professionally. She didn't even curse when the sound went out which was either the center's fault, or the sound people they hired.

She looked really good... Check out the pictures and tell me if she looked like a has been...

Brandy is a train wreck. Girl hasn't had a hit in years. Not unless you count all her hit and runs ;)

She now resorts to "performing" at a weave convention? Gurrrl you are OVA!

And yes Brandy WAS NOT SINGING LIVE when the music cut out any one who disputes that needs to clear the wax from their ears and clear the air from the crack they are smoking.

Now why would Brandy be lip syncing at a hair show when her own weave is beat. Her career is over unless she wants to sell her poom poom in one of her brothers video's? It worked for Paris and Kim. I'm sure there are people who are willing to pay to see Brandy's boney flat ass. Brandy just needs to stop and take care of her daughter. Does she even know who the baby father is? Hmmmmm...Thought so.... Gheto trash.

Saturday's a rugby day!!    

She was definitely lip-synching when the music cut out. Otherwise, why would the vocals stop as soon as the music stopped? If she was truly singing and into her performance, it would've taken a little time for her to notice the music was gone. Brandy has a beautiful voice. Reliance on lip-synching is probably very common among performers. Too bad she got caught.
