The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is one of New York's big holiday traditions. So if you're slated to perform, it's a big deal. However when people saw Rita Ora's performance, many noticed something different about her performance. She was lip syncing!

People quickly blasted the "Let You Love Me" singer about not using her live vocals for the performance.

While some people were harping Rita about the lip syncing, John Legend hopped on the social media platform to defend her. He also explained that lip syncing during these type of outdoor events normally uses recorded vocals opposed to live singing.

Rita was grateful for the backup and also shared that her album has topped the charts in Australia.
