Eminem

Lip-Synced 'SNL' Performance

Or We're a Monkey's Uncle

11/4/2013 10:29 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

110413_eminem_snl_launchBarring some crazy rift in the space-time continuum, Eminem unquestionably lip-synced his performance on "SNL" this weekend ... at least judging by Saturday night's broadcast.

In case you missed the show, the video should clear things up. Em took the stage to perform his song "Berzerk" and went borderline Milli Vanilli for four minutes. We cut it down to the highlights for your convenience.

Eminem didn't really try to hide it either, pulling the mic away from his mouth several times while his "vocals" continued at full volume.

FYI -- Ashlee Simpson infamously lip-synced on "SNL" a few years ago and people ripped her to shreds. So, why should Em get a pass?

Granted, we can't say for SURE he was lip-syncing ... we're just making an educated guess ... so we gotta ask ...

That would be almost as bad as Ms. Washington reading every line off the cue cards the entire night.

i dont think he was. the problem with preforming on snl is that many artists make the mistake of using their own sound guy instead of the house sound guy. because they are unfamiliar with the room, this can lead to problems with the mix.

I thought the majority of musical guests on SNL lip synched. I don't know if its the acoustics or what but a lot of live performances have sucked on SNL. What happened with Ashley Simpson just went to show she was no better than a karaoke singer in a bar and certainly not a professional.

He was rapping live to a track. It was obvious. He was not lip syncing

It's a backing track...everyone uses one. I don't like or dislike Eminem, but I do dislike stupid people who shoot their mouths (or fingers) off about things they have no clue about....sound familiar?

I don't care. Em is a bad ass and that performance rocked... but he probably did lip sync the singing bits and do the rap live.

See his Youtube awards performance of Rap God. Nuff said. His talent is legit.

off the topic but why does he keep reaching for his crotch? Is it still there? Weird rapper thing I guess that screams insecurity.
