We’ve all been there. You’re at a gig, or in a club. Everyone is having a blast singing along to the song that’s playing. You’re enjoying yourself, but there’s one problem — you don’t actually know the lyrics.
Most of us can get away with humming along or lip-syncing — but it’s not so easy to fake when sharing a video of your unconvincing mouthing with your 43 million Twitter followers.
This is exactly what happened to Oprah Winfrey as she “sang” along to Adele’s Hello.
Enjoying a sing-song with Lizzo while Adele belted out Hello, Winfrey uploaded a clip in which she seems to be struggling to hit the right notes. She certainly had the gist of how the song went, and was definitely putting in the effort, but the lyrical gaps were clear...
.@adele had us at hello! @lizzo what concert are we going to next?! 🤣🤣🤣 #AdeleOneNightOnly https://t.co/uLBWHGclkw
Meanwhile Lizzo, in the background of the video, is absolutely killing it.
Winfrey received some light-hearted ribbing on social media for her lip-syncing efforts, with one writing: “When the song is good but you don’t know the lyrics. We’ve been there. Many times. We feel you.”
When the song is good but you dont know the lyrics.
We've been there. Many times. We feel you. 😅❤️
