When it was announced that Eminem would serve as musical guest on Saturday Night Live, we expected a performance we’d be talking about the next few days and we got it in a way we weren’t expecting. Really though, with Eminem you never know what to expect and proof of that was his lip-synced performance of Berzerk during his first of two sets on the night.
Now, there’s still some debate as to whether he lip-synced or not but we have video of the performance so you’ll have to be the judge:
Fans remain split on the verdict of whether Eminem lip-synced and beyond that they’re even more split as to whether they actually care that he did. At the end of the day, Eminem turned in a powerful performance that fooled many watching who later had to be clued in to the whole lip-syncing controversy.
The debate will rage until fans get too busy listening to the album when they pick it up, unless they’re already soaking up every juicy track from the online leaked version of The Marshall Mathers LP 2.
What did you think of Eminem’s performance on SNL? Did he lip-sync and if he did, do you really care or were you too wrapped up in the performance? Sound off in the comments section below and let us know.
