Unbelievable dancing- better than many of the 20 something pop stars today (will try not to mention names). But......the auto-tuned, precorded vocals are over the top, especially for a live singing competition, lol...

I was not surprised she lip-synched but I was surprised at the amount of dancing she did... well done, she still has it. Obviously its not anywhere close to her glory days but it has more dancing than the DLTNT video.

That was a very very good performance. The song sucks but she nailed the performance in a way Britney Spears (today) can only dream of. She really killed it, she was really good and people should give her credit for it
Dubbed "global superstar, actress, singer, songwriter, dancer, fashion designer and entrepreneur" in a press release which only just stopped short of claiming she cured cancer.
Paula has never been known for her vocals. She's a dancer first and foremost. People didn't expect stellar vocals from her in the 80's, and they sure as hell don't expect it now. Paula has never shoved her singing career in contestants' faces as if she is a better singer. I don't really see the issue with her lip-syncing. It was supposed to be a fun performance, not a display of her vocal talents.
I think it's SLIGHTLY awkward that she didn't even attempt to sing as a judge of the biggest singing competition in the US. That said, I still agree with you and am not going to slam her for it because you're dead right, she has never been known for her vocals and never will be. Plus, she still knows what a good vocal should sound like, even if she is basically incapable of one without studio trickery. Her performance showcased her TRUE talent. I can't think of the last time I saw choreography that tight and at times, jaw-dropping. At certain points, I was thinking, "Whoa...Paula may really have to load up on the Percs after THAT gravity/death-defying move!" She needs to be Britney's choreographer or something.
