Rita Ora’s live performance on Thursday for Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade didn’t go well — and that’s putting it nicely when compared to what the internet is saying about the lackluster show.
Earlier, the songstress was caught lip-syncing her hit “Let You Love Me,” and Twitter was not having it. Video footage below shows Ora mouthing the lyrics to the song with major delay — yikes!
“Rita Ora’s lip syncing gave me war flashbacks to the Lizzy Magiure [sic] movie,” one user joked, while another wrote: “Yikes is an understatement.”
It may be painful to watch, but it’s currently below freezing in New York City, which makes it nearly impossible to belt out a tune IRL. Even John Legend defended Ora’s vocals (or lack thereof) on Twitter.
Rita was grateful for Legend’s explanation, writing: “Fun fact @johnlegend thank you for clarifying what I was about to also tweet.
