I will repeat one more time, the real vocalist is Sannie Carlson.

The Whigfield lipsync scam was discovered very soon. Sannie Carlson always lipsynced the vocal tracks of Annerley Gordon (even credited on the records). To my knowledge, Whigfield came 2 or 3 times in Montreal. I have heard that her show at club Dome ended abruptly: that people in the audience were screaming "Lipsync!". She showed her middle finger and quit the stage. A few months later, she "performed" "Big Time" (Summer Zone Remix) live at Square Phillips for the Mitsou television program "C'est Chaud". Basically, the CD was playing and she was just dancing to the music, mimicking the words.
Evasive in interviews, Sannie Carlson is still a very cultivated girl (she speaks something like 4 or 5 languages) and the marketing was easy partially because of that.
Those who still believe that Whigfield was not a scam should listen to some Ann Lee's records. A very popular one was the 1993 single "Try Me Out" by Lee Marrow, where she sings under the name of "Charme". The track was later covered by Corona (Sandra Chambers), another popular lipsync scam. Everybody agrees on the perfect similarity of the voice, and credits never lie.
Whigfield is another proof that, long after Milli Vanilli and Black Box, lipsync was a very popular formula in the 90's, especially in Eurodance.
