Did They Really Sing In That Movie?
Did They Really Sing In That Movie?Some actors do their own stunts, others do their own singing.

Before it became a popular trend to showcase actors' real singing voices in musicals like Rock of Ages, Mamma Mia and Les Miserables, many vocal dubbers went uncredited to preserve the illusion that our stars were really belting it out on the big screen.

See if you can tell who was really singing, and who got some help.

My sis once asked me "I wonder if that's really him singing...?" We were watching Ferris Bueller's Day Off. lol
