Is 10 Year Old Wonder Jackie Evancho Lip Syncing?

'Jackie Evancho Americas Got Talent

America's Got Talent, and maybe another Milli Vanilli lip-synch scadal in the making. Ten year old Jackie Evancho knocked the socks off the competition, singing "O Mio Babbino Caro" by Puccini like an angel and prompting the judges to ask her if she really is 30 years old, and was there someone backstage really singing her part? Reader Glitzy writes:

I don't know...something ain't right here. It TOTALLY looked as if she was lip syncing. I'm not buying it...AT ALL!

So is little Jackie Evancho the next Milli Vanilli? Is her talent real or just an urban legend? Can a girl this young really sound that much better that every single  American Idol contestant besides Fantasia Barrino and Ruben Studdard? You be the judge:

She sings in fact I've seen several of her gigs and she sings all synchronized. I do not think it's a fraud she has done several live presentations showing that that is her voice.

I've watched and watched and I am convinced she is a phoney - I don't buy it for a moment. She is lip synching and this will turn out to be a tremendous hoax. I would love to believe that this little girl is making this sound, but I've studied her performances. Why, for example, does does she hold the mic right in front of her lips whenever she sings? Because she is hiding the fact she's a fraud. I am convinced of it. That is all.

Oh my god....the urban myth that black people dance sing and jump better than whites isnt way. Really? Ruban and fantasia sucked and won due to political correctness. More people know second place clay oh....milli vanilli were black.

LOOK carefully at the mouth,and listen. Almost every performance is not actually a singing performance but a mouthing performance done very well(including american idol).The voice on the recording may have started out as hers. There is no hate involved in this objective observation. You must not let your hopes and wishes convince you of something that is not actual.

I agree with the lip synching. When the audience claps there acoustics are completely different than when she is singing. Also, David Foster's fingers are in the wrong register of the piano for what was heard. She sounds like Charlotte Church. Also, remember "Singing in the Rain"? The whole story is about a singer who was back stage getting no attention while the beauty big-mouth was out front. Remember what W.C. Fields said -- "there's a sucker born every minutes"!

If you knew anything about choir and singing in choir, you would notice the way the skin beneath her jaw moves up and down, as well as her mouth. Also her neck veins were puffed out. That is *very* hard to fake.

Not wanting to disappoint you Captain but it is improper to sing with your jaw moving up and down and the neck veins to puff out. That is a sign of straining...

I didn't even consider her being a fake. I was thinking how sad it is that she has such an angelic voice and no one has taught her that vibrato should never be in your mouth/lips. If someone doesn't correct her soon she will never master the correct vibrato.

I'm sorry to pop the balloon of all you american jackie fans, but try playing her CD synchronised with any video of a "live" performance... that includes her QVC performances, her AGT heats and her BGT guest appearance, as well as the concert featured on youtube...the CD tracks all match her lip sync perfectly! There's no way in this world that ANYONE singing live can sing the same song EXACTLY the same time after time. Maybe it is Jackie singing, but she's definitely miming every time I've seen her do a so-called live performance!
