The first five days of December were Maydays all over the network.

Sister Pa's social media page is like a world war, some scold Mayday for lip-synching, and some avenge Mayday, which is very noisy. The more noisy it is, the more chaotic it becomes, and many artists such as Liu Ruoying, Ding Dang, and Chen Qizhen have come out to stand in line, but there is still no result.

So, did Mayday lip-sync or not, and why were they suddenly scolded so badly?

Let's break it down together.

The Mayday lip-synching turmoil started with a fan circle.

A while ago, the five of them went to a Mayday concert and sang together. After listening to Mayday, Mayday fans ridiculed them for their singing skills, and it was all up to Ashin (Mayday's lead singer) to save them.

The fans of the five people stopped doing it as soon as they heard it: Why don't you say that your brother is lip-syncing?

The weight of this sentence is very heavy. As if the fig leaf of the Mayday concert was pierced all at once, many people who had watched the scene rushed out and said their guesses that they had been holding back for a long time: It turns out that you also think they are lip-syncing?

After that, the professionals poured oil, analyzed the audio tracks of the 12 songs of the Mayday Shanghai concert, and came to the conclusion of "true and false mixed singing".

Some are recording a whole day, some are out of tune and low in timbre at the first sentence, and then suddenly the pitch is excellent, and the voice is back to 20 years old. There is a feeling that my grandmother grinds soybeans with a stone mill and suddenly grinds out a cup of master latte.

The way professionals analyze audio tracks in videos is a more conventional way to distinguish lip-synching. Through the waveform, you can see if the human voice is neat as if it has been repaired by a machine. If you look at it this way, there is indeed a suspicion of lip-syncing, but it is not 100% certain.

Moreover, the source of the concert recording is unknown, and it cannot be ruled out that professionals have processed the audio themselves in order to gain traffic. After that, some bloggers pointed out that Ashin's concert audio in different performances had overlapping audio tracks. In this case, it still can't be a fake song.

Sister Pa also asked some people around her who were engaged in related industries, and read the analysis of people from all walks of life on the Internet. It is more likely that the scene of the Mayday concert was not completely lip-synching, but there were a lot of harmonies in it, commonly known as "half-open microphone".

The matter of "half-open microphone" belongs to the singer playing a side ball between real singing and fake singing, the definition is unclear, and the controversy is also very large. After all, 10% of the microphone is also semi-open, but there is basically no sound on the scene.

At best, this is a move made by the singer's voice condition to decline in order to preserve the live effect. Many singing and dancing groups' concerts are half-open, otherwise they can't be listened to at all.

At worst, it's the equivalent of going to a high-end restaurant to eat and serving a plate of pre-made dishes that the chef has heated by hand. Although it was handled by the chef, there are always people who feel that the money is unjustly spent.

Mayday only reacted to this controversy three times in the whole process.

First, the lead singer Ashin blocked netizens who questioned him.

Second, the broker hung up the reporter's phone. The reporter could not find the person concerned to interview, so he could only interview the organizer of the concert. The answer given by the organizer was very reverie, saying that it was "inconvenient to answer".

Third, Mayday's agency issued a statement denying lip-to-lip singing in an attempt to end the show.

Now that the relevant departments have taken the audio to test, we can wait for the official results.

After Mayday's statement, netizens are still on trial. Passers-by who have been to the scene posted videos they had taken, saying that they were lip-syncing. Including singing the wrong words, only to find out that it is not my own part.

I didn't have a microphone in my hand and sang out loud (fans said it was the voice of the backing singer, which was very similar to Ashin).

The singing lip sync didn't match, and the lyrics were forgotten (fans said it was because of the delay on the big screen of the concert).

Now, a very awkward situation has developed online.

The "lip-synching faction" took out the concert video of Ashin singing very well, saying that it must be lip-synching.

The "avenging faction" took out the video of Ashin's concert being out of tune and unable to sing, saying that this must be the real singing.

Anyway, there is a consensus on both sides, that is, with Ashin's singing skills, it is impossible to sing completely in tune. The last ones who were injured were all listeners anyway.

Of course, there is also a group of people who are "falset-to-innocent". Speak out for Mayday everywhere and resolutely support the concert lip-synching.

If it goes on like this, Mayday hasn't really collapsed, and it's about to be collapsed by fans. Sister Pa felt that it was unnecessary to discuss the unreasonable singer's lip-syncing.

First of all, lip-synching is inherently illegal. Concert lip-synching is no different from fraud.

Second, the concert market is messed up enough. After the epidemic, the whole country held a "revenge" concert, and it was more difficult to grab a ticket for a concert than Zhen Huan to return to the palace. Tickets for many singers' concerts are premiumed to tens of thousands, and there are also six-figure ones.

Singers are also treated as donkeys, and two or three concerts are held in the same city at every turn. Mayday sang 6 times in Beijing and 8 times in Shanghai.

According to what Lin Junjie said before, after 3 concerts in a row, the singer's state will be greatly affected. Mayday's performance schedule was too dense, and it was really tiring that the lead singer was oxygenated on stage.

However, the Mayday concert is also really profitable. The concerts in Shanghai and Beijing, converted to earn almost 900 million. Just selling Mayday's exclusive glow sticks (140 yuan each) sold for more than 7 million.

In the face of such a high income, it is indeed difficult to "stop singing when you are tired".

But the audience is, after all, a consumer, not a brainless believer. The vast majority of the audience who went to see Mayday wanted to listen to the song and miss their youth, immerse themselves in the lively atmosphere, and sing a few words along with everyone. There is a high probability that he didn't want his youth, and finally became fooled, and then "returned one and lost three".

This year, there have been a lot of concerts, big and small.

Joey Yung at the Macau concert, when singing "Let This Heavy Rain All Fall", dropped a beat and broke down and screamed.

Xue Zhiqian had a fever of 39 degrees on the day of the concert and was forced to cancel the performance. He came to the stage to apologize in tears and reimburse fans for the loss of machine wine.

and Huang Qishan sang "To the Clouds" at the party and went out of tune, apologized for the collapse of the live broadcast, and sang it again for everyone.

But most of the final feedback from those who have seen these performances is "the experience was good". For singers who are occasionally in an unstable state and out of tune, they even think it's very real and cute. After all, if you want to listen to the perfect singing voice, you might as well listen to the studio version at home.

Sister Pa is a person who loves to watch the scene very much, because in that kind of space, the emotions of the audience and the performers are in unison. Sincere attitude, hard-working performance, exquisite choreography.

These details are fed back to the audience, and the audience's emotions are conveyed to the performers in a timely manner, bringing them a sense of accomplishment. This is also why many actors will become extra confident and charming when they stand on the stage of the drama.

On the contrary, those performances that are not distracted and have too poor strength will only become more and more difficult to sell tickets. is still the same sentence, being an artist is a conscience job, and you have to be tested by the audience at any time. Cutting the audience's leeks in a different way is actually cutting their own reputation, and the road will only get narrower and narrower.

Moreover, the stage and the audience are also precious public resources. Only by attaching importance to the audience and cherishing every opportunity to perform can we go a long way.
