China has recently announced that it will be banning lip-syncing for all its singers and idols. Their cultural board as decided upon the new rules to prevent too much focus on visuals in the saturated industry, and for the future development of their music cultural scene.
All actors, singers and idols will be punished if they are found to be lip-syncing. If any entertainment agency finds out that their idol is lip-syncing and does not take action or blow the whistle, they will also be held liable and all celebrities under them locally will be forced to give up their rights to promote in China. If they do not abide by the new rules, they will not be able to perform publicly.
