Dua Lipa has responded after being wrongly accused of miming when she headlined Glastonbury 2024 on Friday (June 28).Lipa was the first artist to headline Glastonbury this year, ahead of Saturday headliner Coldplay and Sunday’s SZA, bringing out Kevin Parker as a surprise guest to sing Tame Impala’s ‘The Less I Know The Better’.The pop star later became the subject of claims online that her performance on the Pyramid Stage had been “too polished to be live”.

Others noted that her voice was out of sync with the image on their TV as they watched the performance live, which gave the impression she was lip-syncing – however, it was an issue that went away once technical difficulties were solved by switching to FreeView.The pop star stayed on at Glasto after her set, and simply responded to the claims when they were put to her by a MailOnline reporter on Saturday: “I don’t mime.”NME rated Lipa’s set four stars, with reviewer Liberty Dunworth calling it a “visual spectacle” that “not only becomes a glittering celebration of pop in its highest form but also serves as a reminder that even the most outlandish aspirations can become a reality”.Technical difficulties have affected some artists who’ve played Glastonbury this year, including Shania Twain in Sunday’s ‘legends’ slot on the Pyramid Stage and SZA in the final headline slot on the Pyramid.Check back at NME for the latest Glastonbury 2024 news, reviews, interviews, photos, rumours and more..
