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 ...

It's called a backing track. Eminem and nearly all other rappers use them for live performances to support their lyrics. What happened here is Eminem's mic either was too low or was turned off completely, so all you heard was the backing track giving the appearance he came out lip-syncing.
