IT DOES NOT PAY.

Well, cheating may pay for awhile - that is, until you get caught and if you are not caught, cheating habits tend to backfire in some way sooner or later. I don't know if you remember reading about the rise and fall of the famed pop duo - Milli Vanilli. They rose to stardom in the late 1980s early 1990s and won themselves a Grammy for Best New Artiste. However, millions of their fans worldwide were extremely disappointed when their scam was uncovered - it wasn't their voices you heard on their records, and they lip synched at live performances. Now that is cheating. However, my two favorite recordings by that fake duo were : "Girl I'm gonna miss you" and - "Blame it on the Rain". How can anyone feel satisfied with achievements attained by cheating? Have you often encountered instances of bold cheating? Pictured above is the duo Milli Vanilli.

@JolietJake You were just copying other people who also didn't have them in their record collection. Let's be honest, even if they had been a brilliant rock act who didn't mime, you wouldn't want anyone with a name like that on your shelves.

Here, cheating is rampant when it is election. The candidates give some money to the voters of their place to vote for them. Good thing the voters are wise. They get the money but put the name of the candidate they like on the ballots.

I remember these two. Now, lots of singers do what they did from time to time, and many people think nothing of it. That is especially true if the singer is well-established. I remember Jessica Simpson's sister did that, and that was the end of her career. Yes, I see cheating, lying and turning people against others, etc.

i think there are some more artists who lip-sync their songs in concerts, and although it is not good at all, they say it is better rather than other voices lip-syncing for them will be shown or heard, like this duo in your discussion. oh, so there are ghost singers as well. like ghost writers.

Nowadays, there are so many ways to cheat and so many persons deciding to go that way instead of learning to do something original. It's really a shame and shows us that we cannot trust everybody. We have to be careful in all situations in life.
