The Horror! Olympic Lip Synching

A couple of days ago, there was some attention paid to the fact that the Olympic opening ceremony in Beijing involved a 9-year old who lip-synched a song performed by a 7-year old.

Whoa nelly, you mean the whole ceremony was a show?

I'll be damned. I thought the whole thing was real.

At the end, I was so certain that the guy with the torch was actually flying around the ceiling of the stadium. Imagine how shocked I was to find out he has suspended from some kind of wire.

    Its not so much that people are shocked to find the opening ceremony contained elements of pageantry. I believe people think that a sweet little girl being told by the state that she lacked "stage presence" and her song would be pre-recorded and then lip-synched by a much more attractive little girl, who meets the state standards of be a little outrageous.
