Milli Vanilli, China Style

From the AP: Olympic opening uses girl's voice, not face

"The real singer, 7-year-old Yang Peiyi, with her chubby face and crooked baby teeth, wasn't good looking enough for the ceremony, its chief music director told state-owned Beijing Radio."

Update, 8/13 9:30am:

Here's the pics (from Windsor Star). Girl on the left was too ugly to sing in public.
