Pinkerton Academy takes on lip sync challenge

Pinkerton Academy hosts Milli Vanilli contest

Derry News

---- — DERRY — Lip-synching, dancing and teamwork add up to a whole lot of fun at Pinkerton Academy.

Pinkerton students presented the annual Milli Vanilli lip sync contest March 6 at the school’s Stockbridge Theatre. The event draws a crowd and students take the stage to perform various pop tunes or dance moves.

Milli Vanilli, the musical duo of Fabrice Morvan and Rob Pilatus, climbed the American pop charts during the 1980s, with several No. 1 hits and a Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 1990. After the pair’s lip-synching secret got out, Milli Vanilli became the subject of late-night jokes and suffered a fall from musical grace.

The Milli Vanilli contest dates back to the 1990s.
