Jeremih

I Didn't Lip Sync ...

I Just Sang Over My Own Voice

Singer Jeremih is adamant ... he did NOT lip sync at a spring break concert Wednesday night -- when he was pelted with drinks -- telling TMZ, he just sang loudly over a recording of his own voice.

According to Jeremih, the situation wasn't ideal regardless -- because the promoters didn't adequately prepare the stage or provide the right equipment for J to perform.

Jeremih tells us, he was late on stage because the crew wasn't ready for him to perform -- but the crowd was chanting his name anyway ... so he decided to make do with what he could.

Big mistake -- because Jeremih says the equipment backfired ... playing his vocal track much louder than he wanted ... making it look like he was trying to lip sync, when he wasn't.

As for the bottle attack -- Jeremih says a girl threw her underwear at him and the girl's boyfriend got jealous, hurling a bottle at Jeremih in retaliation. Jeremih walked off soon after (below).



Jeremih called the whole thing "a horrible experience" -- and adds, "I would never lip sync period. I am way too talented to do that. I am not the type of artist that has no voice."

This has been going on for a long time with certain artists. They have a FULL backing vocal track and they sing at the point where you can hear them, barely, but the backing track is always there. It's a shame that some artists don't have the voice to carry their song live. That's a fact.

Looking at the video, there's a couple of points where his voice in the track is heard but he has the mic down. I'm sure the video is of sync by at least little bit, but there's one part in particular where is races the mic to his face, knowing he forget the words and missed a lyric...

Dude, you were lip syncing. Maybe the mic was on .... but it if was 80% recorded and 20% your mic, it's still lip syncing in my book.
