    For me, all the choreography isn't what I'd call a "live" performance. To me live means spontaneous... improvisation, making each show unique and special. Maybe it's just because I'm a Rock and Blues fan.

    I go with Roger Daltry's philosophy... "Give me a bum note and a bead of sweat, any time!"

    yeah- when i first watched it it looked like she was lip syncing too.
    but then i watched again, and mick is off too.
    and keiths hands. and charlie.
    sometimes it doesnt look bad,
    but gaga is throwing her arm down quick, increasing the effect.
    i think if it was just the stones you wouldnt notice it-
    or it wouldnt be enough to warrant suspicion.
    seems odd to say,
    but even mick has a more subdued delivery that makes the out of sync-ness less obvious.

    That's your question, and IMO a ridiculous one. Here's some more ridiculous "Questions":

    Are Keef and Woody really playing?
    Is that Mick, or an impersonator?
    Is Charlie really playing the drums, or is Zack Starkey backstage?

    :rolleyes:

    There is no question whatsoever. The Stones don't lip sync in concert and neither do their guests.

    that show was pretty much a snoozefest until she came on and woke the band and the crowd up.

    She's singing her ass off,

    There seems to be a good deal of singing left to do.

    I agree with this, if you listen and not look it's really great singing on her part.

    As for me, I only watched a few seconds, I found Mick and Gaga scary so I turned it off.

    Lady Gaga doing what she does, cool.

    7:00 min mark, Keith realizes it is not a hallucination.

    Do you think it would take just a little away from the service if the guy giving the ulogy came dressed as a clown? (well ok, excluding that the dead guy actually happened to be a clown)

    In line with some of the above Gaga defenders, if you disapprove of the clown suit on the eulogist it is simply a sign that:
    you are too old,
    you don't get the joke,
    you don't get the art,
    you fail to appreciate the difficulty of giving a eulogy whilst wearing said clown suit,
    you have no business expressing an opinion as you have never given a eulogy, in a clown suit or otherwise

    yada yada yada

    Well, you guys, there you go to jumping to conclusions, just like Lady GaGa in that outfit.

    When you get there you will conclude you can't get too old.

    I'm the one who proposed the example, of course I get the joke.

    Average ordinary everyday eulogy delivering clowns are not art. (but could be named Art)

    I often offer my services as a clown eulogy speaker (though in the heat of the moment I have be known to misspell eulogy, since I usually speak extemporaneously on the deceased my lack of spelling skills will have little effect on the service, especially in view of my attire.)

    Since the above statement pretty much covers the clown portion of my experience in eulogies, I will simply answer the second part, all of the dead people I have had the duty of giving a eulogy for have never spoken one word maligning my capabilities as a speaker or criticizing my choice of attire.

    I thought the coolest part of the video occurred around the 1:40 mark. The camera angle makes Lady Gaga appear sort of Gandalfish, and Mick definitely looks like a really skinny hobbit!

    Firstly, it was me that wrote what you've quoted, not Norton72. You're already off to a bad start.:D

    Secondly, if you want to go hopping around completely different contexts (rock concert vs funerals) as if they're equal and applying the same rules and logic you're certainly welcome to but believe me it doesn't add any weight to your arguement. I get what you're trying to do and it's not necessarily a bad ploy in a discussion but for me it's just not persuassive because of the extremely different contexts.

    Actually the more I think about it the more I agree with your analogy, minus the dead guy, because in this case the clown, Mick, is alive. So, yes, as long as the guy being honored is a clown then it's completely appropriate for anyone eulogizing and/or singing to be dressed accordingly.
