    Girl singing in opening ceremony not really singing. Was lip-syncing to another girl deemed "not cute enough" to be on tv.

    BEIJING, China (CNN) -- A little girl and her song captivated millions of viewers during the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics. But what they saw was not what they heard.

    Lin Miaoke was the darling of the Olympic opening ceremony, but it turns out she was lip-syncing.



    Games organizers confirm that Lin Miaoke, who performed "Ode to the Motherland" as China's flag was paraded Friday into Beijing's National Stadium, was not singing at all.

    Lin was lip-syncing to the sound of another girl, 7-year-old Yang Peiyi, who was heard but not seen, apparently because she was deemed not cute enough.

    "The reason was for the national interest," said Chen Qigang, the ceremony's musical director, in a state radio interview. "The child on camera should be flawless in image, internal feeling and expression. ... Lin Miaoke is excellent in those aspects."

    But it was for the good of the country and national interest. So it's okay.

    Some people just belong on the radio.
    That's why it was invented, for the not so attractive people.

    In other news, it looks like the Beijing Opening Ceremonies people used Windows. I'm guessing Vancouver will use a Mac....
