When the subject of lip synching comes up, it is usually condemned. How dare they think they can get away with lip synching! That sort of thing.
So here comes Jonas Kaufmann with an excuse. Since he cancelled everything else in May, including the Zurich Jonas Kaufmann Gala, how is it that he sings in Munich for the Champions League final? (His team lost.) Apparently there was a lot of complaining about this. It turns out his performance was pre-recorded. He was lip synching. Should we be relieved or irate?
