There's more. You should go read the whole Lisa de Moraes column. I won't spoil it for you, but here's one interesting tidbit:
". . . the official word from NBC yesterday was that SNL executive producer Lorne Michaels's position is that its musical guests perform live. To drive home that point, for the West Coast feed the network edited out Simpson's voice from the backup track that had taken her by surprise. Viewers in Los Angeles saw Simpson gyrate, appear to become confused because the band was playing the wrong song, and then walk off. Presto chango, no lip-syncing."
Interesting, no? Are people really that afraid of David Geffen?
A word on Lisa de Moraes: For you kids out there who get all your news from the interweb, you're really missing out. De Moraes is the funniest woman in journalism--and the best television reporter in the country, to boot.
