    Wink The Horror! Lip-synching Moves to Orchestras?!

    This just in from Fox News:
    Have orchestras taken a cue from Brittney Spears and Ashlee Simpson? Has the world gone mad? Is......anything.....real.....anymore?!

    SYDNEY, Australia — China isn't the only country to fake a musical performance during an Olympic opening ceremony. It turns out that Australia knows a thing about miming music, too.

    Eight years after Sydney hosted what was dubbed "the best Olympic Games ever," officials with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra acknowledged their stirring performance at the 2000 opening ceremony was entirely prerecorded.

    The revelation of the mimed performance -- which both orchestras have defended as a necessary precaution against embarrassing flubs -- followed an international uproar over China's decision to pass off the voice of a 7-year-old singer as that of another girl at this year's Olympic opening ceremony.
