Sorry, but it's been going on forever.

The Monkees and Fabian and tons of others 'faked it' while others played.

Heck the whole storyline of the 1952 Gene Kelly movie "Singing in the Rain" is about a high-end starlet having someone overdub her voice on screen and live concerts 'cause she couldn't sing.

Leena Horne sang offstage for Ava Gardner in the '40s because they didnt want a black woman to have the lead in a big Hollywood movie at the time.

Nothin' new.....
