Eminem

I Was NOT Lip-Syncing, But ...

Eminem is claiming he didn't pull an Ashlee Simpson on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend ... TMZ has learned.

A rep for the rapper tells us Em was not lip-syncing during his performance of "Berzerk" ... but does admit he was using a vocal track underneath his live vocals.

Translation: live mic+vocal track = vocal help. Yes, technically ...it's not lip-syncing, but it's pretty damn close.

The rep adds, "He just likes this sound and if you listen to his albums they are done the same way."

Guilty conscience?

Has anybody here ever been to a live rap show? This is what they do. In fact, Eminem is one of the few hip-hop artists that tries to avoid this at his shows.
