Selena Gomez and producer Marshmello hit the AMA’s to perform Wolves, and Selena’s performance has been getting a lot of online hate. Maybe Pink raised the bar when she sang live while scaling a building, but while fans were thrilled to see Selena back on stage, many accused her of lip-synching. If Pink can sing live while flying through the air, the question is why can’t Selena sing live when standing on stage or sitting on a car. With all that Selena has endured in the past year, including a life and death scare with kidney failure that resulted in a transplant, some are asking if Selena should just get a pass.
While many people anticipated Selena’s comeback, they were disappointed by what they assumed was lip-synching. Selena could be seen mouthing words that didn’t match up with the sound or correlate with the audio.
According to a new report by TMZ, Selena Gomez wasn’t lip-synching but was singing along with an audio track for the chorus.

Since Selena only used the backing track during the chorus, this means that she was, in fact, singing live during the verses. Apparently, Selena had a lot on her plate. She is still in recovery mode and this was her first live performance since undergoing kidney transplant surgery.
She sang and danced and wanted to ensure that she had everything perfect, according to an insider. Once people noticed something was amiss and suspected she was lip-synching, the online backlash began.
According to TMZ, it’s possible the audio track Selena used had technical difficulties resulting in the issues. Because of those issues, many publications are stating that Selena Gomez had one of the worst performances of the AMAs.
What do you think? Do you agree that Selena was lip-synching or had technical difficulties? While some have issues with her singing, others gave her mad props for her appearance and the visuals used during her performance.
Selena looked great and after her health battles, her fans are simply excited to see her back on stage performing.
Do you feel that Selena should get a free pass and since she has endured so much this year, people should just leave her alone and not worry about whether she lip-synched or sang along with a track?
