Watch these stars perform during the season finale.

Meghan Trainor entertained the holiday audience and performed her current single, “Lips Are Movin,” at the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. This spectacle aims to impress with its marching bands, colorful floats, larger-than-life balloons and a foolproof, dozens-plus musical line-up. What ended up being the center of attention, though, was how badly some of these artists were lip-syncing.

Some acts did pull it off, bless their hearts. The Vamps was convincing. So was Nick Jonas, though an inappropriate float dancer distracted from his performance. Idina Menzel belted “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” only for her mic to be cut off. Annie star Quvenzhané Wallis hit every lyric of “Hard Knock Life,” though she didn’t seem thrilled to perform it as Britney Spears would, complete with a headset mic. (Remember, she recently turned 11.) 

However, others seemed completely thrown. Lucy Hale and Becky G barely hit their cues. “Best Day of My Life” band American Authors missed theirs completely. And, several times during her performance, the sassy Trainor waved her hands in the air instead of mouthing her own lyrics: “If your lips are moving, then you’re lyin’, lyin’, lyin’, baby.” Well, there’s always next year.
