Video of the Glee Cast Performing "Somebody to Love" at the White House Easter Egg Roll 2010-04-05 12:45:28

Glee Kids Perform at the White House — Ouch or Overreacting?

The Glee kids continue to take the world by storm, stopping by the White House today to perform at the annual Easter Egg Roll. They performed a few tunes clad in red (a throwback to the series premiere) and finished off the afternoon with "Don't Stop Believin'." Unfortunately, the video isn't spectacular — Cory Monteith's voice can barely be heard and the kids performing backup seem to be lip syncing. Luckily, Lea Michele's gorgeous vocals save the day, but overall the whole thing's kinda shaky (the croaking animal noises in the background don't help things). Apparently there were some mic problems, but it's hard to tell on a video stream. What do you think of the performance — ouch or overreacting?

haha and maybe it didn't sound right because you thought they were singing "somebody to love" ;)

i think the reason the sounds and voices are off is because of the video feed. the audio track seems to be catching the sound from the speakers, not from the stage, which gives it a slight delay. i'm chalking it up to technical difficulties.

don't stop believin' not somebody to love... :) They couldn't hear each other, the way they were looking at each other like "uuuhh...guys, lets just keep going." Lea Michele is as good as she sounds on the show, what a powerhouse!

Yikes..... Let's hope they don't have the same technical issues again any time soon! Their techs are probably having a pretty bad day at this point.

As a performer, I can honestly say you really cannot plan for technical difficulties. What you're hearing (and what people think is unrehearsed) is all technical difficulty. To the people who say the back-up support is lip synching, they aren't. It looks that way but they aren't. The "words" they're using are universal syllables so there really isn't a need to move your mouth much. The beginning is done in a style called a cappella (i.e. no instruments used except the voice). A cappella singing is freaking hard! 13 years as a choir singer and I still struggle with a cappella. You really are dependent on each other and really have to listen. If one screws up (particularly in a small group such as Glee), the rest are more than likely to screw up as only voices are supporting the tune. It's hard to carry a tune all by yourself with no instruments to fall back on if you get lost, trust me!

It was so obvious it was tech problems. If you watched the whole time.
