That’s enough, dear.
Come on. Here, have some water. – You ran for miles!
– Yeah. We’ll be doing this
every day, okay? A few minutes of jogging
before voice lessons should be enough. Now remember,
when it comes to singing, it’s not only a matter
of proper technique, it’s more about singing
from your heart. What do you mean, Pa? When we sing, we only have
to use our voices, right? Of course. But more than that, singing is like telling a story. So it’s important to sing
with feelings every time. That way, the audience feels
what you’re singing, too. Zephanie, here! Look what I bought! – What’s that?
– Go look at it! What’s in here? I bought her some clothes
for her upcoming contests. And a new pair
of sandals, too Try them on later
to see if they all fit, okay? But you bought me
so many clothes, Ma. One dress and one pair
of sandals is enough. I just got my salary, so I decided to buy you
everything you’ll be needing for all the contests
you’ll be joining. That way, you don’t have
to rent out outfits anymore. It’s really pretty, Ma! Isn’t it? I can already
see you wearing this on the grand finals. – Isn’t it pretty?
– It is. Look at this… I joined amateur singing
contests left and right. But I never won the top prize. But I still loved singing
no matter what. That’s why I never stopped
joining singing contests. (Zephanie singing) (Audience applauding) And our Singing Superstar
Grand Champion for 2015 is… …Allen Miguel Cruz. Congratulations. (Looking concernedly) (Father cheers on) I didn’t win again, Ma.
I’m sorry. Don’t say sorry, dear. You did great out there. – You really did.
– Right? Now, don’t cry, okay?
It’s alright. You did your best. (Sarah Geronimo
performing on TV) How can I be
more like Sarah, Ma? If I were as good as her, I’m sure I’ll become
the singing champion next time. What should I do
to become a better singer? You don’t have to sing
exactly like Sarah, dear. Because you have
your own unique voice, your own unique talent. But Sarah never lost. I practice and I pray
all the time, but I never win. Your time will come, dear. You’ll see. So just keep practicing. Fight on, okay? I’ll go cook some rice now. – I can do that, Ma.
– Alright. We don’t have any rice left, Ma. Oh, my… I have to pay the water
and electric bills too… Don’t worry, Ma. I’ll do even better next time so I can become champion. And when that happens, we’ll have enough money
to buy more rice. Come here, Zephanie. You don’t have
to pressure yourself, okay? Your dad and I will take care
of everything else. I don’t want you to worry
about anything, okay? I want you to keep practicing. You love singing, don’t you? I’m happy seeing you enjoying
yourself and doing your best. Okay, Ma. Come here. Just focus
on your singing, okay? (The Voice Kids ad playing) You want to join
The Voice Kids? Yes, Ma.
What’s up, my name is Roomie, and a couple weeks ago We made a video about pop stars and how they often lip-sync live This video is gonna be about YouTube singers like me and how they often present their videos as if they are sung live But they’re not. Let’s go. Okay, so first off is Conor Maynard. I feel like Conor is probably the singer who tries to the least to make it look real But a lot of his audience seems to insist that what he does is live. And that’s kind of the power of this kind of video that looks live. Even you don’t really try that hard a lot of people who don’t know a lot about music will think that it is live and they will probably share the video more because of it. Which makes them FOOLS! [Mug] You’re such idiots! [Roomie] Just kidding. [Mug] Don’t chicken out. If they believe it’s real, then they are truly morons! [Roomie] Yeah, let’s watch ♩Oooh,♩ ♩You just want attention♩ ♩You don’t want my heart♩ ♩Maybe you just- First off, he kind of misses a word here. I’m hearing, “Yeah, you just want attention” but it’s only lip syncing, “You just want attention” Let’s watch again in slow motion. ♩Oooooh♩ ♩You just want attention♩ Secondly he does something with this tongue, but we only hear him breathe in ♩-my heart♩ ♩maybe you just-♩ Okay, so there’s even more stuff in this video. This is one of my favorite videos for this kind of thing. Let’s watch the next one. ♩One, don’t pick up the phone♩ ♩You know he’s only calling cuz he’s drunk and alone♩ ♩Two.♩ ♩I’m in love with the-♩ What happened to the two? Where’s the two? I can here it, but I can’t see it. Let’s watch it in slow motion. ♩You know he’s only calling cuz he’s drunk and alone♩ ♩Two.♩ If the mouth doesn’t open for a word then it feels like it maybe lip synced. Okay so some people still argue she does sing that note. There’s a comment here that says something about braces, But most people are missing the biggest giveaway of all in this video, They are singing to a backing track, but they’re not wearing headphones or anything How are they hearing the music if they don’t have headphones on there are special? Microphones that are designed so that you can sing while still hearing music you know in the air from speaker But this microphone here is not one of those Next up, is Alex Aiono. Let’s watch! [Singing] *Ever since I left the city you you you* *Started wearing less and going out more.* Started “wearing”, right? Where’s the wearing? It’s just *Started weahaha* Let’s watch again in slow motion [Singing in Slow Motion] *Started wearing less and going out more* And this yet another fail in the same video I’m not even sure if I’m gonna call it fails because obviously I think most of these people realize what’s happened And they just don’t really care enough to fix it. Okay. Le..let’s watch! [Singing] *Just wonder if you’re rollin’ up a backwoods for someone else* *Doing things I taught you, gettin’ at it with someone else* You can see in the top left that even he noticed in the edit that like “Oh, I failed the lip-sync here.” So he added “Nobody’s Perfect Haha” [Mug] Just because you admitted you failed, doesn’t make it less of a fail you imbecil! Like, f*ck you, Alex. [Roomie] Next one is Kurt Hugo Schneider, Sam Tsui, Madilyn Bailey, and Alex G. Let’s watch [Singing] *Send my love to your new lover* *Treat her better* *We’ve gotta let go of all of our ghosts* *We both know we ain’t kids no more* [Vocalising] So the female audio track sounds like “do-doo, do-doo” But the lip syncing that Madilyn’s doing in the video looks like this: “do-dah” “Do-dah” So yeah, have a look at that. [Vocalising in Slow Motion] Ehehaha, yeah! There’s another giveaway in this video, which is like crazy to me. Let’s watch. I don’t know what happened. [Vocalising] [Singing] *Rising.* *Mmmmm* (Repeat in Slow Motion) For some reason Alex G is singing something in this video that isn’t in the audio I don’t know if she was like singing her own Ad-libs or something that they didn’t want or something, but she could be singing anything: “My grandpa’s old fat c*ck” Haha. [Mug] Such a joke sucks! [Roomie] Learn to talk! *laughs* [Mug] *Evil Laughter* That’s what you get. You f***ing garden gnome. *Evil Laughter* [Roomie] Here’s another quick example on how to spot lip-syncing on YouTube. This is Conor Maynard once again with his brother, Jack. He’s called Jack. You ready? [Inaudible Chatter] [Singing] *My sexy love* So did you notice how it was like really windy when they were talking in the beginning And then suddenly, magically, the wind stopped. Or like, the wind didn’t affect the other microphone. That’s because that audio isn’t from out there in the wind, obviously. So yeah. Let’s watch that again! [Inaudible Chatter] [Singing] *My sexy love* So convenient that the wind stopped at that second right? Right when the music started. It’s like they’re Gods or something. “Just, wind, stop!” Do an edit for me, Jonas. *Roomie does sounds* I’m stopping the wind right now. Do an edit. Okay, so next up is Walk off the Earth. I wanted to show you the “Five People, One Guitar” video. That one is also lip-synced. But it’s a bit harder to show. You kind of need a little bit of Divine Producer Ears to be able to hear it. But instead I have a more visible example for you guys and that is their cover of “I Knew You Were Trouble” [Singing] *I guess you didn’t care* *And I guess I liked that. But when I fell hard, you took a step back* *Without me, without me, without me* There’s a lot of things going on here. I had to watch the video a couple of times before I found it. Let’s watch this in slow motion. [Singing in Slow Motion] *Without me* Basically he’s singing: “Bum” when you can only hear “Eee”. That’s.. that’s the thing. That’s what I got for you. [Mug] Yeah, they messed up alright! Which proves they’re f***ing fakers. And have zero talent whatsoever! I know I talked about how smooth I thought Justin Bieber was.. …in the video where he explained the way the auto-tune live when he started glitching. Here’s one of the Walk off the Earth people, Sarah, answering the direct question about lip-syncing. The Owl Mag: What’s your response to people that say you were lip-syncing the song? Sarah: There’s always controversy. YouTube is a haven for people who have opinions. The video is all over the world. No matter what, somebody’s going to look at something and have something bad to say about it. We don’t concern ourselves with it. We don’t really care what people think. [Roomie] She doesn’t say “We didn’t lip-sync” in that answer. I just love that. It feels like she says they didn’t do it, but she doesn’t say that they didn’t do it. I respect how smooth that is. It’s so.. Next up is a collaboration between Alex Aiono -that we saw before- and William.. Is it.. Sing? Singe? [Other person] I don’t know. I don’t care enough.. Google it! [Roomie] Let’s watch it! [Singing] *Hey, lil’ mama, would you like to be my sunshine?* *Baby, touch my gang, we gon’ turn this into Columbine* I love this video. Like, they’re having so much fun with the lip-sync and it’s like, they’re just like, really swagging. There’s one reason why this wouldn’t work to do live, and why they’re not doing it live, even if it looks like it and that… …is microphone placement. Look at the way? He’s facing compared to the microphone. He’s all over the place He’s like towards the microphone, and he’s over there. [Singing] *Baby, touch my gang, we gon’ turn this into Columbine* Let’s try out what it sounds like if you do that. [Singing] *Hey little mama, would you like to be my sunshine?* *Baby touch my gang we gon’ turn this into Columbine.* *Hey little mama* *would you like to be my sunshine?* *Baby touch my gang, we gon’ turn this into Columbine.* As you can hear you can record as they do in the video. But it wouldn’t sound as clean and nice. And you get like a very varying type of sound. That’s what gave it away. I’ve actually lip synced in one-take videos myself. I’m saying this stuff to be transparent with you guys. And now to really embarrass myself.. I’m gonna show you some of my lip-sync fails. Let’s go! [Singing] *She took my arm. I don’t know how it happened.* *Pop**Pop* Here I’m stopping the notes too early to have time to do the plop thing let’s watch that in slow motion [Singing in Slow Motion] *I don’t know how it happened.* *Plop* *Plop* Yep! Ahah! [Mug] So, It turns out you were just as fake as everybody else all along, Roomie. F***ing Hypocrite! Here’s another example where the sound isn’t exactly what you see and this is a pretty recent video of mine. Let’s watch! [Singing] *Everyday discovering something brand-new.* *Let me entertain ya!* The whole video is filmed live and I used the live vocal and everything , but, on that specific phrase, like the last “Let Me Entertain You” I accidentally sang in falsetto And it bothered me so much in the mix that I needed to re-record it because it just.. it sounded so bad. I don’t still have the recording, but I’m gonna show you now kind of what it sounded like, I think. [Singing] *Everyday discovering something brand-new.* [Ear Rape] Let me entertain ya! Something like that. Haha, it was so bad, and I just hated it. So then I recorded another vocal in the studio afterwards. Maybe now you’re thinking: “Roomy, if that’s lip-synched are your other videos lip synced as well?” Are the voices videos lip synced? And no, they’re not. The voices videos are live because it’s just a very convenient way to do it. It takes so much time anyway to get the voices right. So, I wouldn’t want to do it and get a good take and then like take even more time to try to lip-sync to it I’d just rather film the whole thing. Also if I was lip-syncing it I would make sure to look a lot more attractive than this when I sing I’m not saying that anyone I featured in this video can’t sing. I think most of them are really really good singers Probably all of them So the reason YouTubers lip-sync is like when you lip-sync you can focus on one thing at a time So that you can record the audio first so that sounds pristine and excellent And then you focus on the video and try to make that as good as you possibly can. And obviously, since you can record better if you get a bunch of takes you can record every word separately if you want you can use it To make yourself come across as a better singer than you are, but also I think that a really big reason it’s just PR. That people are more likely to share something that looks like it was done live in a studio than they are if They know that’s just a lip-sync. Please don’t hate on the other singers or whatever. [Mug] Yes, do! *Evil Laugh* Do hate on the other singers! I’m not hating on them many of them are my friends I just wanted to show you kinda like a little bit of behind the scenes of YouTube musicians, and how things work It’s just like an aesthetic, right? It’s a look of a video, now. The problem is that there’s always gonna be a percentage that you know eat it up. Totally 100%. “Oh, this is live.. .. this is an amazing live take and he’s singing so good or she’s singing so good!” But(t) I don’t think you can trust anything to be live when it’s a video form. That’s just my two cents, I don’t know. Anyway. I’d love to know what you guys think. Is this cheating did I cheat in those videos I showed you? Did anyone else cheat? Uhhh [Mug]They all cheated [Roomie] You know! [Roomie] Yeah, let me know in the comments, and yeah.. [Mug] You’re fake. I hate you Roomie. You’re worthless. [Roomie] That’s pretty much it. I love you. … And that is what money looks like ok, so I just found a similar one to this one on eBay $12,500 that’s crazy. I so don’t want to drop this right now

-If you’ve ever — If you’ve
ever used Google Translate, you know it’s not
always perfect. For example, when translated
to Latvian and back, “The Tonight Show
Starring Jimmy Fallon” becomes “This is Jimmy Fallon’s
Show Tonight.” So we did the same thing with
popular song lyrics. Some people have done this
online. It’s super fun. We’re gonna try this right now. Idris, you’re my guest,
so you are up first. Here’s your microphone. -Oh, really?
Oh, that’s nice. -Yeah, very — of course. You, uh, you’re our guest. -Yeah, no, I’m the guest.
Okay. -You will be singing
the Google Translate version of “Baby Got Back”
by Sir Mix A Lot. [ Cheers and applause ] Translated, it is called
“The Baby Escaped.” [ Laughter ] -Okay.
-Roots. -Check one, check one. ♪ Unh, unh ♪ [ “Baby Got Back” plays ] Okay, okay. [ Cheers and applause ] I-I mean…
-That was fantastic. -Did anyone understand
anything I said? -No. Yeah,
that’s the fun of it. That’s the fun of it.
-Okay. -All right. All right.
It is — it is my turn. Here we go. I’ll be performing the Google
Translated version of the 1998 Britney Spears’
classic “Baby, One More Time.” -Boom. [ Cheers and applause ] -Which is now called
“Meet My Kids.” [ Laughter ] Here we go. [ “One More Time” plays ] [ Cheers and applause ] [ Cheers and applause ] -Yo, you scratched that.
-That was heartfelt. -Well done.
-That was heartfelt. You felt that?
-Yeah, I did. -That really came
from the heart. -I think that Google Translates. There must be a few poets
that work there. -Yeah. Beautiful poetry. For this last one,
let’s do a duet. -Yeah, okay.
-Is that good? -Mm-hmm.
-This is — this is… [ Cheers and applause ] This is “I’ll Make Love to You”

What’s up guys my name is Roomie Official. I hope you’re smiling. I hope you’re working towards your goals. Today We got a bunch of stuff on the schedule. We’re gonna do a bikini try on haul I’ve found a really good bikini for my body, but the main Shaboozle today Is that we’re gonna take popular songs we’re gonna switch out the lyrics. We’re gonna find songs where that works Or, you know, kind of works. There’s this new groundbreaking song out there, and it’s got this amazing melody It goes like this, ooh Look what you’ve made me do look what you made me do look what you just made me Do look what you just made me do and because that lyric is such a work of art It’s really compatible with timeless music. I found this one classic song that it works really well with Subtitles are off but whatever. Ooh, Look what you made me do. Look what you just made me do. Loook what you just made me do. Okay, so that’s totally mind blowing Amazing thing was the first lyrics switch. I’ve got a bunch of other of those coming up later in the video. Before we move on to more mind-blowing Life-changing lyrics switches, I want to try out something with you guys I’ve never done before it’s inspired by the sexy sexy man behind this t-shirt Jacksfilms. Also. I just want to ask you guys What do you think this looks like? I mean it’s supposed to be a light switch, and it really looks like one but it also kind of looks like in Minecraft d*ck. All jokes aside. I really love Jack I think it makes some of the funniest content on YouTube so go check him out Anyway, the setup for this amazingly original concept is that I’ve written a song And I want you guys to fill in the last line. The song goes like this So your task is to come up with a punchline and write it in the comments. Here’s two examples I made of what you could write: Had an edgy joke but I’ll let it be Too afraid that Tumblr might rage at me Had an edgy joke, but I’ll let it be I’m too busy Chokin this fat baby I’ll be featuring your best answers in the next video Okay, so time for another lyric switch. This time for the lyrics we’re using Kygo and Selena Gomez’s It Ain’t Me if you haven’t heard it, it goes something like who’s gonna walk you through the dark side of the morning And mixed together with Maroon 5’s don’t want to know it sounds like this Who’s gonna walk you through the dark side of the morning who’s gonna rock you when the Sun Won’t let you sleep. It’s waking up to drop you home when you’re drunk, and all alone who’s gonna walk you through the dark side of the morning it ain’t me oh bowery So that one actually turned out above my expectations i’m papered that one looked a bit like uuh my favorite lyric switch is coming up in a little bit but before we do that Let’s do something a bit different. I’m really sorry about this, but it looks like your house is built on a giant turtle It’s about to go into the sea. However, I have been saving up balloons that I can tie to your house You know, like in that movie Up, so you can fly to safety But I don’t have enough balloons yet to lift your whole house and you will be out in the sea drowning in like two minutes But if you click my subscribe button and that notification bell Then I will get more balloons for some reason and maybe I can save you so hurry up and do that I’m totally Sincere and not you know try to use this story to make you do anything. While you’re down there also click thumbs up That’s also good for the the balloons You know so I got helium to fill the balloons with. Hurry up and do it because I really want to save you 100% I’ve been getting tens of thousands of emails, maybe hundreds of thousands of emails, asking me to release more original music. A very frustrated mom even emailed me the other day saying that her kids wouldn’t stop peeing in her sofa until I had released a new original song. This is all 100% true, by the way. So, here you go Here’s two teasers from the original songs I’m working on right now Oh I watched you fall Oh You lost it all Oh Haven’t heard from you It’s been way too long If you wanna I know then I know what went wrong Please believe me it was I who F****ed it up Please believe me it was I who F****ed it up Okay guys time for my two final lyric switches I love these ones. I think they’re the best. Also, I’m really excited about the collab thing you and I are doing if you missed it head over to 1:40 in this video and leave your comment for it down below. I can’t wait to read your guys’ responses Here’s the last two lyrics switches. I hope you enjoy and see you next week. Bye So today, we’re gonna be trying out the Vocaloid program and comparing it to my real human voice.
