Now Eminem's Caught Lip-Syncing On Tv

Subscribe to Saturday Night Live

Bosses of American satirical show Saturday Night Live were left embarrassed by Eminem last night (30OCT04) when the rapper lipsynced through parts of his two performances on the show.

A week after Ashlee Simpson's miming fiasco made headlines, Eminem failed to keep up with his own guide track as he performed politically-charged MOSH and new hit JUST LOSE IT.

This came after guest host Kate Winslet poked fun at last week's (23OCT04) lip-syncing controversy during her opening monologue.

She said, "I'm thrilled to be hosting Saturday Night Live. I can assure you it is live because I'm hyperventilating a bit.

"I do however wish it wasn't the week after the Ashlee Simpson incident because now I really do have to perform live."

Winslet then showed off her tap-dancing and singing skills - to prove that the show was completely live.

Winslet's stint on the show was a hit - she played Norah Jones and a female DR FRANKENSTEIN in skits on the programme.

Meanwhile, Saturday Night Live writers further poked fun at Simpson when regular comic Horatio Sanz performed, 'Ashlee Simpson you're a phoney...' to the tune of Elton John's Tiny Dancer.
