Yang Peiyi, a 7-year-old Chinese girl, had the perfect voice to sing the the Chinese national anthem, "Ode to the Motherland" at the opening ceremonies of the Olympics, but apparently she wasn't TV-ready. Officials decided it was in "the national interest" to have a different, cuter girl lip-synch to Peiyi's version of the song to present the perfect image of China to the world. Sure, the girl who was chosen to lip-synch is cute as a button (she's pictured above), but is it appropriate to tell a little girl that she isn't pretty enough to represent her country? Or to give another girl instant fame by turning her into the country's littlest Milli Vanilli? [AP]
