On Second Thought, Maybe Lip-Synching Isn't So Bad

In his whirlwind tour of the BCS bowls (except the Fiesta Bowl, but then again, who cares?), LA Times sports columnist J.J. Adande has this to say about the Orange Bowl halftime show:

The Orange Bowl halftime show is one of the greatest threats to fankind, an overproduced, overly long tribute to shlock. It's a bunch of kids in brightly colored outfits running around the field, with unimpressive singers on stage. This time it was Kelly Clarkson and Ashlee Simpson. Simpson was booed at the start and finish of her act, and was complaining about the audio system to an underling as she left the stage. [emphasis added]
Given that Simpson's performance was actually live rather than lip-synched (q.v. the SNL debacle), I'm guessing she said something like "I can't believe you idiots actually turned my microphone on!"
