Dua Lipa Addresses Rumors of Lip Syncing During Her Glastonbury 2024 Performance

Dua Lipa

Dua Lipa has recently spoken out against allegations that she was miming during her headline performance at the 2024 Glastonbury Festival. Performing on Friday, June 28, Lipa was the first headliner of the festival, setting the stage for other top acts like Coldplay on Saturday and SZA on Sunday. During her performance, she surprised the audience by inviting Kevin Parker to join her on stage for a rendition of Tame Impala’s hit “The Less I Know The Better.”

However, following her set, several viewers took to online platforms to express doubts about the authenticity of her live performance. Critics claimed that the perfection of her act on the Pyramid Stage suggested it might not have been live. They noted discrepancies between her voice and the visuals on their screens, which led to suspicions of lip syncing. These concerns were later attributed to technical issues, which were resolved after switching the broadcast to FreeView.

Despite the technical glitches that affected performances at this year’s festival, including those of Shania Twain and SZA, Lipa remained at the festival grounds. When confronted by these lip syncing claims , Lipa confidently denied the accusations, stating simply, “I don’t mime.”

This episode highlights the challenges artists face with live performances, especially in a large-scale event like Glastonbury where technical difficulties can add unexpected twists to their presentations. Lipa’s straightforward denial and the subsequent resolution of the broadcast issue clarified the situation, reaffirming her commitment to delivering genuine live performances to her fans.
