Ashlee Simpson

One of the most famous and EMBARRASING lip-synching scandals of recent years, Ashlee Simpson's chances of a genuine musical career started and ended with this live two-song performance on Saturday Night Live. Having seemingly sung her first song 'Pieces of Me' without any trouble, the poppet was left red-faced when the backing track for her next song came on, only for it to be the same dubbed version of 'Pieces of Me' again!
