Mariah Carey is no stranger to accusations of lip-syncing after many questioned whether she was singing live during her 'American Idol' performance earlier this year, and she was at the centre of another miming storm yesterday following this year's BET Awards.

The 43-year-old star took to the stage at the 2013 BET Awards in LA to perform her latest single 'Beautiful' but was immediately accused of miming along to a pre-recorded track.

Her pitch-perfect performance led to many taking to Twitter to accuse the singer of lip-syncing.

Quick Poll

Was Mariah Carey miming at the 2013 BET Awards?

  • Cheryl Cole

    We always wondered how Cheryl managed to sing so perfectly whilst throwing some serious shapes to her No.1 single 'Call My Name'. Now, thanks to her performance on 'Stand Up To Cancer', we know.

  • Ashlee Simpson

    Jessica Simpson's little sis, Ashlee, didn't even pretend to mime along to her hit 'Pieces Of Me' on Saturday Night Live back in 2004. She just did it a little jig instead to try and distract us from the fact that she was going to mime along to her single. Yeah, that's do it, Ash.

  • Britney Spears

    Britney made hardly any attempt to hide the fact she was miming when she appeared on 'The X Factor' to perform 'Womanizer' in 2010. As if her out-of-time lip movements weren't enough, Dermot O'Learly gave the game away by handing Brit a mic to talk into after the performance. D'oh!

  • Mariah Carey

    Mariah forgot to put her mic to her mouth in time for her big screechy note when she appearing on 'Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway'. Ooops!

  • All About Eve

    We can't remember any of All About Eve's songs but we DO remember sitting down to watch Top of the Pops back in the day and seeing Julianne Regan and Tim Bricheno sitting there like lemons as their single 'Martha's Harbour' played but they failed to hear it. Despite the epic live telly fail, the single climbed the charts for the next two weeks!

  • Lindsay Lohan

    If the acting work ever dries up for Li-Lo (which can't be that far off) you'd think she'd have her music *ahem* career to fall back on but she's going to need to brush up on her lip-synching skills first.

  • Cheryl Cole (again)

    She may have prepared a backing track with live vocals recorded over the top, but Cheryl was fooling no one when she performed 'Fight For This Love' on 'The X Factor' in 2010.

  • Katy Perry

    Katy Perry: Singer, songwriter, dancer... recorder player? Errrm, no.

  • The 'X Factor' contestants

    The 'X Factor' contestants have long made us cringe with their dreadful mimed group performances, but this particular rendition from 2011 had our toes extra curled.

  • Beyonce

    Beyonce fooled us all with her rendition of 'The Star Spangled Banner' at President Obama's inauguration. And she would have got away with it if it wasn't for some pesky kids who outed her as having mimed.
