FujiTV bans lip-synching in its music programs


FujiTV announced recently that it will ban singers from lip-synching in its music programs i.e. MUSIC FAIR, Bokura no Ongaku and Doumoto Kyoudai. The news was first made known when Kikuchi Shin, the producer of these music programs, mentioned on his blog entry dated 5 March that the TV station and crew decided on this during a meeting on 6 February. In this era when viewers are generally forgiving about singers lip-synching, they wish to focus on "live music". Besides, the minimum a singer should be able to do is to sing "live" or else he/she shouldn't be considered as one.

However, views on this issue have been largely divided with those in favour of this move saying things like "if the viewers are listening to lip-synching, they might as well listen to CDs instead of watching the music programs", "cleaning up the bad practice of lip-synching is good". On the other hand, there were also netizens who would rather hear the pitch-perfect lip-synching performance rather than one which totally destroys the song if the singer is bad at singing live. Some even criticised the practice of music-synching i.e. when bands pretend to play their instruments live while the music is actually being played in the background and said that this should be banned as well. At the same time, some people were also worried about the disappearance of idols in such music programs if other TV stations follow in FujiTV's footsteps since a lot of the idols aren't exactly known for being able to sing well in live performances.

Good Job FujiTV

aint going to be seeing Perfume on fuji tv shows then. Although I think the only FujiTV show they were ever on was SDK, I'm not sure about the others mentioned

perfume was my first thought, too, though if they don't frequent any fujitv shows then it's not as much of a concern as a fan of the girls. but i think it's setting a really unfortunate precedent for any artists that are like them in the future, so i'm not feeling this decision that much. :/

good move ^^ on music TV show, it's the music that's important, not how they look or dance.

idols with low musical ability will not appear, of course... but the good ones might still come (not sure about idol's musical ability myself, but i believe there are some who are able to do it).

FINALLY. I hope all other TV station will do this too! I wanna see everyone sings live in Music Station, mostly! ;p

And thank GOD Kame ALWAYS sings live. So I have no problem ^^ The other KT members needs to get used to sings live too! They didn't do it as often as Kame, though ^^;

this. when i watch a live performance i wish it to be different. not what i keep listening to on my ipod XD

especially in concerts lol

Exactly! I want live singing, mistakes and all. Or when they adlib lines or change things up. I have tons of live recordings on my ipod because each performance is unique this way!
krzhope 8th-Mar-2013 05:08 am (UTC)

whited_79 8th-Mar-2013 08:42 am (UTC)
won't be a big deal to my fav bands and idols though...:)
viakarma 8th-Mar-2013 05:28 am (UTC)
oh respect fujitv. it's always reassuring knowing youre not simply listening to a backtrack :)
hyosshi 8th-Mar-2013 05:36 am (UTC)
This is awesome!!! I didn't think Domoto Kyoudai even allowed lip synching to be honest though. They seem very focused on being live.
shunluv 8th-Mar-2013 05:42 am (UTC)
SDK is definitely live esp with their live band

I think there is still entertainment value in watching performances with lipsynch when the artists are dancing on stage. But even as idol fan, I think this change will make a good challenge in how performances are managed, and maybe some will finally stop using lipsynch as an excuse to bash certain idols. For the sake of the latter, I hope those who relied on backtracks will still be invited.

for me I don't care, Kuu is the QUEEN OF LIVE

can't wait till Pamyu Pamyu comes on of their shows, please no one tell her <3
