Scotty McCreery has a whole lot to be thankful for this year, but he's probably not going to enjoy his turkey quite as much after a slip up at today's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
This year's "American Idol" winner was riding a float and setting himself to perform to his hit, "The Trouble With Girls." Unfortunately, his cue didn't go quite right, and the song began a few seconds before he began to "sing." In other words, a lip sync fail.
It's quite obvious that all the artists at the Thanksgiving Day Parade lip sync, and one can debate the merits of that sound quality versus the value of live performance. But getting it right, technically, is probably a must.
This, unfortunately, isn't the first time McCreery has been involved in a flub at a national event; at the World Series, the sound system was off as he sang the "Star Spangled Banner," and then he messed up the lyrics.
The irony? He's famous because he is great at performing live.
