|Scandal Threatens Performers|
Officials are scurrying to recover from allegations that Sesame Street Characters performing on the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum were actually lip synching.
While still not conclusive, slow motion video seems to indicate that their mouths were not moving in synch with the voices.
A spokesman for Sesame Street refused to comment but Parade Officials apologized for the incident and vowed that if true, next year they will hire Simon Cowell to ensure that the singers perform live.
There were also allegations that the Characters were actually people dressed in costumes. Both Sesame Street and Parade Officials vigorously denied the accusation.
