Jelly Roll explains his thoughts on lip-syncing

When many performers take on big tasks, like the Super Bowl halftime performance or a New Year’s Eve performance, they usually have a track planned out and lip sync to it. This gives them a perfect performance, even if something goes wrong during the live event. Of course, many fans slam bands for lip-syncing, but for Jelly Roll that was never a concern.
