Default Should Jon Start Miming?

Since Jon seems determined to continue touring, do you think he should start miming during shows?

There was a time when I couldn't think that anything would do more damage to their reputation than becoming a mime act but now I think it would be better than what Jon is doing on stage.

Thumbs down

God no.

Lip syncing the odd high line here and there I can forgive. But the whole show. No. I don't think Jon would even allow himself to do that. It would end what little credibility they have left.

I saw a promo show The Offspring did to promote their latest album. Dexter was miming the whole way through, it was so obvious and pathetic. I'd rather Jon just continue sucking knowing he sucks and give his heart and soul on that stage like the rockstar that he is. Even if the end result is what we unfortunately have.

Nah Iíd rather have the real thing with all its flaws than an empty shiny polished illusion.

If heís singing live, even if heís struggling hard, heís at least putting his heart and soul into it and you get real emotions in the performance. If he was miming it wouldnít be much different from watching people lip sync to songs on social media or watching a music video.

No! God! Please no!

That would mean that he has really touched hard bottom.

Even as hurt as it is, I prefer Jonís real voice than a fake. At least the real thing means that they still care. I even wish he didnít do it at Prayer (and let the public or someone else in the band to handle it).

Letís keep the lipsync for RuPaulís Drag Race.

No I donít think Jon should lip sync an entire show, despite my reservations towards Jonís current voice Iíd rather hear him sing live even if he struggles through an entire song or set list. Like all of us Iíve kinda accepted the way Jonís voice sounds. Aside from the obvious high note playback track on Prayer Jon is way too old skool to lip sync an entire set.

This captures the spirit of my original message very well, I think. I too agree that miming should never be done and that Jon should retire, HOWEVER, if Jon is adamant about staying out on the road and destroying the legacy of the band then why not start miming. I'm sure that 99% of people who go to a Bon Jovi show (a) wouldn't notice if he lip-synched and (b) would leave thinking it was a kick-ass show. I can't imagine 99% of people leaving a Bon Jovi concert since 2015 thought it was a kick-ass show.
