Milli Vanilli became one of the most popular pop duos of the late 1980s and early 1990s.
Their success quickly turned to infamy when the duo confessed that they actually didn’t sing any of the vocals heard on their million selling records! This led to the group being stripped of their Grammy Award for Best New Artist effectively destroying their career.
According to one of the fake singing duo, Fab Morvan, it was their producer, who suckered the two in by giving them a small advance when he signed them. The pair spent most of it on clothes and hairstyling. It was many months later that the two were told they had to lip sync to the prerecorded music or, per the contract, repay the advance in full. “We were not hired, we were trapped” said Morvan. He blamed it on the producer but the song says Blame it on the Rain!
