Chinese Pop stars face the music over lip-syncing

Authorities in the Chinese province of Sichuan say two Chinese pop singers face fines amounting to around $12,000 for lip-syncing during a concert.

The two women are alleged to have mimed through a concert last September.

A ban on the practice was brought in after a young girl was embarrassingly revealed to have lip-synced at the opening ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

The actual singer, who had crooked teeth, was not considered pretty enough to appear.

If they decided to fine those in the West what would happen to the likes of the Spice Girls and Girls Aloud. Im sure the fines would be more than $12,000. It might be a good thing in going forward to ensure those who sing become famous rather than the way they look. Talent seems to have become secondary.
