Dan + Shay had a big night at the Academy of Country Music Awards
Winning Duo of the Year and performing a soulful version of their latest hit, “Glad You Exist.”
However, the pre-taped song aired out of sync during the CBS broadcast, prompting some fans to speculate on Twitter that the duo was lip-synching the performance at Nashville’s famed Bluebird Café.
The performance video, when tweeted out by the ACM Awards, did not have the same lag as the broadcast.
The duo addressed the issue on Twitter citing an audio sync issue with the television broadcast.
apparently there was an audio/video sync issue on the television broadcast. we’re bummed about it, but it happens, especially when performances are happening in multiple locations. kudos to the @ACMawards for pulling off a great show. ❤️ https://t.co/gO4GcJZqNm
