Sunday’s show, which featured pre-taped performances from several artists, was no exception.
Award-winning duo Dan + Shay’s pre-recorded performance of their song “Glad You Exist” seemed to air out of sync.
The band addressed the mishap on Twitter.
“Apparently there was an audio/video sync issue on the television broadcast,” they wrote online. “We’re bummed about it, but it happens, especially when performances are happening in multiple locations.”
Performances for the show took place at several locations across 纳什维尔, 天恩, including the Grand Ole Opry House, Ryman Auditorium and the Bluebird Café.
“Kudos to the @ACMawards for pulling off a great show,” 和 + Shay concluded.
The snafu resulted in fans voicing frustrations online.
“Please own up to the production issues that caused the audio and video to be off,” 一位观众说. “I’ve seen Dan+Shay live numerous times. They don’t lip sync and it’s sad to think that there are now people who think they do.”
“Too bad on the CBS broadcast that’s not even close to what it looked like,” 添加了另一个. “Totally butchered it – the sound was off by at least 5 seconds.”
Said a third: “Nice song but what went wrong on the delay. Very distracting. Is this not LIVE?”
Their issue wasn’t the only one that caught viewers’ eyes either.
