Eminem Says He Didn't Lip-Sync On SNL But Did Use Vocal Track
Eminem was the musical guest on Saturday Night Live this weekend (Kerry Washington killed it) and performed a couple of tracks; "Berzerk" and "Survival." However, there is some chit-chatter over whether or not the Detroit rapper lip-synced, which he denies, sort of.
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."
Call us old school, but we prefer when an MC rap strictly raps over an instrumental on stage, especially if you're paying good money to see them perform. Otherwise, we could listen to their tunes in the comfort of our own home.
Let us know what you think of Slim Shady's performance, which you can watch right here, in the comments.
