Linkin Park‘s big tribute concert to late frontman Chester Bennington has been underway at LA’s Hollywood Bowl, with the band wheeling out guest after guest to join them for renditions of some of their best tunes, in honour of Chester.
One of those guests was Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oli Sykes, who joined Mike Shinoda & co for their first performance of Hybrid Theory mega-hit ‘Crawling’ since Chester’s tragic death back in July.
A few fans have taken to Twitter to suggest that Sykes might have been miming…
oli sykes lip syncing crawling is sooooo obvious and making me cringe so bad

Also Oli Sykes' part looked prerecorded but it sounded incredible so I'll take it
