Sannie Carlson (best known as Whigfield) is the name of a lady with Danish origins who decided to make a mark in the history of pop-dance music by selling millions worldwide. In 1994 she gained a place in the Guinness Book of records with the song ''Saturday Night'' as the first fraudulent artist to go straight to number one in the UK singles chart with a debut single using the voice of the real studio singer Annerley Gordon (also known as Ann Lee) in live performances & music videos while she just synchronized her lips. Her discography is extremely impressive including numerous hit singles all over the world & four studio albums featuring Annerley's vocals on all her songs & also as a songwriter for some of them, a career spanning over two decades which for a pop-dance act is extremely unusual. After many years on stage as a lip sync model, Sannie has concentrate on the other side of the music industry singing with her real voice for the fifth studio album called ''W'' and for other projects with the aliases of (Naan) and (Sannie) also writing & composing for other artists in the business, both DJs & singers with names such as the Grammy winner Benny Benassi, Adam K, Ann Lee and In-Grid.

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.
