Masked Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Performers Say Lip-Syncing Will Be a Lot Easier This Year

Several musical artists who will be performing in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade said Tuesday that having to wear masks while performing this year will make lip-syncing a lot easier. The rationale, the artists explained, is that the masks will fully cover their mouths, and therefore, viewers won’t be able to tell if they aren’t fully in sync with the song recordings.

“I don’t even have to practice this year,” former American Idol finalist Tori Kelly told TMZ. “I’ll just need to stand up there, sway around a little bit, and shake my head back and forth pretending that I’m actually singing.”

“I’ll be going ‘blah, blah, blah’ the entire time,” echoed businesswoman and country music star Dolly Parton. “All they’ll see is my sparkly mask moving up and down – along with, of course, my pristine 74-year-old body.”
