During Dick Clark's New Year's Rocking Eve at Time Square the vocalist Idina Menzel from the children's Disney cartoon Frozen performed its extensively difficult hit song 'Let It Go' live on stage. She is a talented singer who did a brilliant job recording the song. This, however, was live, in front of a large crowd, being broadcasted across the nation and in 30 degree weather. Regardless the circumstances, for the most part, she belted it out reasonably well. Nonetheless, as I have come to understand, people gave her a grave panning.
I'm not getting on that bandwagon. She could have easily opted to lip sync the song. The crowd wouldn't have cared and most people on twitter wouldn't have even noticed; not exactly musical scholars in either set. I'm sure the producers even gave her that option. Also considering, in the first place, how stupid and childish celebrating new years actually is, how the fanfare of something as trivial as a number changing, well, a pre-recorded vocal track would have fit right in with all the other asininity.
