Furious concertgoers accused Janet of lip syncing during her performance in Brisbane. It comes a week after fans slammed Janet’s performance at the festival’s Western Australian leg in Perth on November 8.
Attendee Stuart Watson told The Sunday Mail that Janet’s set was a ‘disaster’.
‘Her sound was just terrible, she would be singing and then all of a sudden just do random stuff’, she said.
Stacey-Anne Ritchie said she had never seen so many people walk out of a concert.
Video footage shows the Together Again singer sounding pitch perfect despite jumping around on stage, leaving many fans pointing out ‘obvious lip syncing’.
And while many blasted the sound quality – or the lack thereof – not everyone agreed with the harsh opinions.

‘I cant believe all of the people bagging the artists,’ wrote one woman.
‘I can’t fault them and as for Janet Jackson I think we need to remember she’s not 20-something anymore and with her choreography singing would be hard.’
Following Janet’s performance in Perth last week Pamela Lewis, 34, said she was disappointed with the show.

‘It was the worst performance of the night and probably the worst I’ve seen,’ Ms Lewis said.
‘Once [Janet] was on stage she started lip syncing and it was so obvious she was dancing around trying to move the mic over her lips so we couldn’t see and she kept putting her hair over her face.’
‘Everyone started leaving and everyone was saying how disappointing it was.’
Some suggested Jackson’s microphone might have been off making it look like she was lip syncing. Ms Lewis disagreed and said the star’s timing was all wrong.
‘She was out of time for sure. We left when she tried to sing Together Again.’
Cherie Mathews said Jackson’s mouth didn’t match the screen and hundreds of people left during the Melbourne show on Saturday.
‘I looked at my sister and said “what the f***?”‘ she said.’People on level two and three were chanting for the Black Eyed Peas to come back on while Janet Jackson was playing.’
Other furious fans commented on the Facebook event page with the same complaint. ‘Janet Jackson’s performance was shameful… Sorry to say but she should be axed,’ said a Perth audience member.
