Katy Perry very obviously lip synced during at least part of her performance at the Cannes amfAR Gala on Thursday. See video below.

As Gossip Cop reported, dozens of celebrities gathered at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc for amfAR’s 23rd Cinema Against AIDS Gala. Perry first walked the red carpet in a gorgeous red lace Marchesa gown, and later changed into two glittering dresses for her performance. But while she looked great, the pop star’s vocals left a bit to be desired.

In one video that’s emerged from the A-list event, Perry is seen simply not singing as pre-recorded vocals for “I Kissed A Girl” play. She dances around and only holds the mic to her mouth on and off, letting the backing track do the singing for her. In addition, there were also reportedly technical difficulties.

Among the celebrities in attendance at the gala was Leonardo DiCaprio, who participated in the event’s signature auction. When not on stage, Perry was seated next to boyfriend Orlando Bloom, who joined her earlier in the week for some PDA on a yacht. The singer has not mentioned the gala performance on social media. Check out some clips below, which clearly show Perry not actually singing at various times.
