If they were lip-synching, it wasn't to this "studio" version. The vocals and guitar parts are quite different from what was performed Sunday. And there's no way Zak was faking it -- what we saw was what we heard on drums. Also, the "Who Are You" vocals were certainly NOT pre-recorded as they were quite sloppy. 

Say what you want about our boys, but they did not lip synch!

y know what I think? 

the whole performance was pre-recorded and they were miming to it. it did 
look a bit lip-synched at first, but later it didn't, but now I wonder..
