From the short clip about this that CNN showed last night, she came back into the monologue portion of the show later on and apologized for the lip synching as her voice was raw from previous use (perhaps a concert prior to SNL??) and she was trying to preserve it not rip off the audience. Her 'dance' was, it appears, to be frustration being vented and embarrassment over being 'caught'.

I've often wondered who the real voice of Britney Spears is.

It's not a "who." It's a "what." Around $50,000 of assorted studio equipment turns her rather ordinary voice into what you hear on her records (and her concert performances, which are also lip synched). That equipment is also why all boy bands sound exactly the same.

There was a hilarious moment on the Howard Stern show a few years ago, when they got hold of an audiotape of Enrique Iglesias from a concert performance. The audio was captured in between his mic and the mixing board (where it was suppressed and replaced with a prerecorded track for the concert audience). Oh, man! He sounded like a wounded animal.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
