    They were playing a dollhouse. Thoughts?

    Just saw the "performance" no Mick Jones, and it sounded like they were lip syncing to the original album cut with Lou Gramm on vocals. I could be wrong, my ears are not what they used to be.

    I appreciate the honest assessment.
    jeez. They could have given more camera time to the band after they lugged all their gear to the second floor of the dollhouse.

    No. it's the new guy singing. This is a completely fake Foreigner at this point. Something about the singer irritates me. Maybe that he's not the real singer?
    Foreigner on a Float. Impressive.

    Looked like he was lip synching to his own vocals. I dont see any “band” playing though but to be fair there is no way I could stomach sitting thru the whole thing. Nm I see the band but of course I dont recognize any of them. They may as well have been people
    Out of rhe crowd. Lol

    This definitely sets them up for an upcoming appearance on Sesame Street.

    Is the song in the Baby film? Who on the committee thought of them? Very odd choice

    Show Biz truly is a rough business.

    For some it's a dream come true to be in the parade. Probably not what they had in mind when they dreamed it 50 years ago.

    Not the greatest lip syncing...

    I hope this doesn't damage their credibility and legacy.

    I think the boat long since sailed on that 35+ years ago with "I Want To Know what Love Is"

    No. You gotta have the mic already up to your mouth when the vocals start.

    A bit like their Puppet Show & Spinal Tap moment.

    I'm expecting Foreigner's Jazz Odyssey can't be far behind.

    Honestly, a much better gig than one would expect for this group of hacks and has-beens.
