Twain performed "Soldier" from her new album Now, but fans were left disappointed when it was apparent she was lip-syncing.
The tactic was presumably necessary for the live broadcast and more elaborate choreography the dancers accompanying the "You're Still The One" singer
However, fans were still not pleased that a legend like Twain would agree to lip-sync during such a high-profile performance.
"So sad that she lip-synced the performance," one fan wrote. "Love her but that was beyond obvious, [and] it was too awkward to watch."
A viewer said, "She's not afraid to judge these dancers, but afraid to sing live? Come on, DWTS."

What drives me insane about “artists” who choose to lip sync: they get paid probably six figures per “performance” and choose to do something I could do, like lip sync. No respect. #DWTS— Chris (@theechriswhite) October 24, 2017
