Singer Simpson's 'Live' Performance Questioned

During pop singer Ashlee Simpson's recent appearance on 'Saturday Night Live,' it was revealed that she was lip-syncing when the wrong song was cued. The singer has blamed a sore throat for her need to have a backing track. The show's former bandleader, GE Smith, says he is surprised that lip-syncing is allowed on what is billed as a live show.
