Why was Kyary Pamyu Pamyu able to perform at the FNS Kayousai despite lip-syncing?

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is being criticized, or rather, is being laughed at within the industry.

The producer of the program FNS Kayosai released a rule that no one is allowed to lip-sync. The participants had to be "real singers" for the occasion. Even Goro Inagaki, with Johnny's backing him up, and AKB did not resort to lip-synching, but instead sang live. The eventual outcome can't be called good, though.

Kyary who came onstage though, just seemingly sang along to her CD, as one could clearly see that she was lip-syncing. 

It is also still fresh in everyone's minds how she did the same during the summer edition of the program and was criticized by Chiaki, saying, "I don't consider the ones lip-syncing as singers. From an aspiring singer."

After the program, netizens were quick to criticize Kyary.
"She should just change her name to Kuchy Paku Paku*."
"It's the same as gravure idols receiving the airbrush treatment in photoshop."
"She won't be bashed if she just calls herself a performer, not a singer."

* (Kuchipaku = lip-sync)

Even "staged and scripted" acts aren't being allowed on variety shows these days, so one could have easily imagined what the reactions would be like when you don't sing live despite this order that it's supposed to be banned. So why did Kyary perform?

According to an industry insider: "Kyary proudly says that she is an 'artist'.

Kyary was originally a junior idol, and wanted to take the next step from that. But she didn't have the acting ability, the singing prowess, nor the body of a model. 

She didn't have any sort of weapon at all. And so she made herself her own weapons, like her unique fashion sense combined with techno pop. She didn't want to let this go. And like how she expressed in her interview, "I don't want to pass by like a fad no matter what. I want to continue my career as an artist. I just want to bring forward the things that I've always wanted to do, be it fashion or music", she just really wants to establish herself as an artist. That's how she will be able to survive this glamorous industry. And that's why the FNS Kayousai is a stage that she could not avoid.

Looking back at her interview, she also said: "It's not that I hate the 'idols', but I really think that I'm not an idol. I think that the people who are calling me an idol don't really know that much about me. But I guess the things I do are similar to theirs, like wearing flashy clothes then smiling when I sing and dance." She's probably trying to become an artist similar to Kaela Kimura.

She challenged herself by performing at the FNS to break free from the impression that she is nothing but a mere puppet, but this has ironically strengthened that image further.

It's the policy of her agency so say direct your complaints at her agency.
It's no use blaming a dispensable clown who has no right of veto or discretion.
11: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/12/16(月) 18:27:02.49 ID:NiagE3QqO
Arashi lip-synced too, so there was no problem with that?
12: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/12/16(月) 18:27:04.25 ID:ZovyIYH40
And she came after Aki Yashiro and Demon Kakka's collaboration of trying to outperform one another, so it added more to how sad she was.

She herself sang those songs so who cares if she lip-syncs? It's not like I want to listen to the song anyway, I just want to enjoy that atmosphere. 
Same goes with Perfume.
It'll be disappointing if the true singers are the ones lip-synching, but if it's Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, who cares? w

完 全 同 意
Completely agreed.

"She won't be bashed if she just calls herself a performer"
22: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/12/16(月) 18:29:58.76 ID:Tum6I1Tg0
Nah, everyone already knows that she's being marketed this way.
This foolishness of bashing lip-sync is really hopeless.
29: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/12/16(月) 18:30:57.01 ID:+ALJWvD7P
I don't think anyone is expecting Kyary to sing live anyway...

If she's not singing, then she shouldn't hold a mic and just dance.
She gets criticized because she's still trying to fool viewers a bit.
46: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/12/16(月) 18:33:48.57 ID:YVRf4HZy0
What's with her trying to pass off as an "artist" when she's just lip-synching wwwwww
59: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/12/16(月) 18:35:16.34 ID:7AVVW7EW0
She's not calling herself a singer so it's fine. She's an artist. 
Something like a painter, right?

> The producer of the program FNS Kayosai released a rule that no one is allowed to lip-sync
Then don't invite her. I don't get what the stance of the program is.
71: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/12/16(月) 18:37:57.24 ID:YkV6Po4J0
Then what about Perfume?
75: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/12/16(月) 18:39:32.14 ID:i6nUKj0L0

All they have to do is add a disclaimer when she performs

"* Currently Lip-synching"
78: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/12/16(月) 18:39:45.33 ID:flxZaQei0

She's just this puppet in this project called Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, right?
Just think of lip-synching as a part of her performance and her overall package.
85: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/12/16(月) 18:40:28.92 ID:w6SeRPiQO
But Arashi lip-synched too. How about that.
99: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/12/16(月) 18:42:11.57 ID:XNypthat0
That was when the program had it's highest ratings (´・ω・`)

Even Mitani sang live, yo!

Fuji TV should be the one being bashed here. It's their fault for making someone who lip-syncs by default perform on the show.
Why don't you go interview the producer who said lip-syncing is banned?

きくちPが今年2月にブログで歌番組における口パク排除といったのは、「僕らの音楽」「新堂本兄弟」「MUSIC FAIR」の3番組のみ。

Kikuchi-P announced on his blog last February that lip-syncing will be banned on 3 shows: Bokura no Ongaku, Shin Domoto Kyodai, and MUSIC FAIR. He never said anything about banning lip-synching on FNS. There are just fools who were under the assumption that this rule would also take effect on FNS because it has the same producer.
107: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/12/16(月) 18:42:46.35 ID:BVdYcZb50
She's not an artist, but just a mere lip-sync character.
She's similar to Funassyi.
115: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/12/16(月) 18:44:18.13 ID:uv8aPce/P
FNS doesn't ban their performers from lip-syncing.
There were also a lot of times where the performers would only sing one portion of the song live. It's wrong to blame Kyary alone.
129: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/12/16(月) 18:46:07.47 ID:n0n/iH1r0
I actually like Perfume since they're the ones who are being more loyal to being clowns.

Sexy Zone's live singing was gracefully bad
152: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/12/16(月) 18:48:19.48 ID:hwVaZrz00

My image of her:

She's just hitching a ride on top of the Mikoshi shrine, but she mistakenly assumes that the talent and ability of the excellent producers are her own.
161: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/12/16(月) 18:49:43.02 ID:kzKi0bUu0

She even loses to Lady Gaga impact-wise.
So what does she have?
248: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/12/16(月) 19:02:47.64 ID:6kFgKK5K0
Lady Gaga is categorized as a comedian in Japan
174: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/12/16(月) 18:51:14.50 ID:RhesPBDhO
She's getting criticized because she's trying to sing badly.
If she just dances without holding a mic, no one will probably diss her.
197: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/12/16(月) 18:54:42.60 ID:wUgXT3OJ0
I am interested to hear how she sounds like live, though
220: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/12/16(月) 18:57:56.59 ID:9+xTbbc50

Most performers collaborated with someone else but this person just did things as usual.
Why is she being treated like a VIP?
224: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/12/16(月) 18:58:45.53 ID:NuFKl1v50
Most of the singers sound really bad on FNS.
It must be because of the acoustics in the venue.
So if you still sound good here, that must mean that you're really good.
237: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/12/16(月) 19:00:25.50 ID:BVdYcZb50
No matter how bad it may be, I still want to hear them sing live.
If we're just listening to the CD then I don't even have to watch the program. I'll just watch the music video.

But during Kusanagi's time, he was also lip-syncing towards the end of the song.
For Arashi, there's no need to even mention it.
292: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/12/16(月) 19:14:45.64 ID:H7RN9GTO0
So does Kyary Pamyu Pamyu lip-sync all her songs at her concerts?
302: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/12/16(月) 19:16:16.41 ID:oGBSNcSG0
Kyary's commercial played on FNS, right?
Then that's how it was.
566: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/12/16(月) 20:48:52.35 ID:9yY5xWl80
au was the program sponsor and their commercial was played.
The au one with Kyary Pamyu Pamyu on it.
Arashi's commercial was also played, and they too lip-synced.
I think both were allowed because of the sponsors.
330: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/12/16(月) 19:22:48.02 ID:6DV5VwuA0

Singing → Lip-sync
Music/Lyrics → Yasutaka Nakata
Fashion → Sebastian Masuda

She's just a dress-up doll.
357: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2013/12/16(月) 19:28:58.33 ID:3qwRD3H9O
Do you really want to hear Kyary Pamyu Pamyu's live singing so badly that you're bashing her lip-syncing?
