WATCH: Is Britney Spears lip-syncing in her Carpool Karaoke appearance?

Britney Spears is the latest celebrity to appear on Carpool Karaoke but the singer has come under fire for reportedly miming throughout the segment.
James Corden has released a teaser clip ahead of his forthcoming Carpool Karaoke special with Britney Spears.
And while it only shows 58 seconds of her much-anticipated appearance, the singer has been accused of miming along to her hit single Toxic in the clip.
James starts belting out the 2003 with gusto and Britney soon joins in. However, while the 34-year-old singer's lips are moving, it doesn't seem like words are coming out and fans have accused her of lip-syncing.
“I like Britney… but the face that in this clip she’s not even singing out loud is making me cringe,” one person wrote on YouTube.
“Britney will be the first human being to make a Karaoke lip-sync. Queen,” another viewer commented.
I love the zero cares Britney gives by miming during the teaser trailer for #CarpoolKaraoke— CROSSY (@CrossyTweets) 24 August 2016
However other fans were quick to jump to her defence: “Most of these Carpool Karaokes are at least 10 minutes long and you are going to assume that Britney is lip syncing or mouthing along to the entire thing based on 15 seconds of a clip. At least wait until Thursday and then pass judgments (sic),” another wrote.
It's probably a little unfair that people are calling her out from just a teaser clip. Perhaps this was just a vocal warm up? The full installment will be aired on The Late Late Show on August 25.
