John Legend is setting the record. 

The “All of Me” singer took to Twitter before his performance at Macy’s Thanksgiving parade Thursday in defense of Rita Ora and himself, after fans called out the performers for visibly lip-syncing. 

“Fun fact. We all have to lip sync on this parade because the floats don’t have the capacity to handle the sound requirements for a live performance,” he tweeted. 

However, Legend promised his fans that the same could not be said for his concerts. He is currently embarking on “A Legendary Christmas” tour, promoting his new album by the same name. 

“Hope y’all enjoyed it anyway. Know that if you come to my shows, the vocals are 100% live!”

@DeeH_NYC said a Thanksgiving turkey isn’t the only thing “getting roasted.”

@Mishyyfishyy pointed out that Ora wasn’t “singing on time at all.”

Ora also responded, sharing Legend’s tweet. 

“Thank you for clarifying what I was also about to tweet.”

Fun fact @johnlegend thank you for clarifying what I was about to also tweet. It’s annoying for us but anyway! All my shows are 100 percent live always have been! When you come to a ORA show get ready! Back to holidays! Have a good one guys! 🙂 X https://t.co/pO5hnnQgvg
