People adored Adam Scott's singing on Big Little Lies - But it was actually Irish singer Conor O'Brien

We’re spoiler free in here.

BIG LITTLE LIES came to a shocking conclusion last night. If you don’t watch the drama, you really should. But, perhaps the most surprising moment was when Ed Mackenzie took to the stage to perform Elvis’ The Wonder Of You.


People thought he sounded GREAT


But hold on a second, was that really Adam Scott?

Some weren’t buying it

And Adam himself revealed in an interview on Conan that he took singing lessons for weeks, but director Jean-Marc Ballée had him lip-sync instead.

It was bad. But the person who sang sounds way better than I would have.

Speaking to Vulture, Vallée said both Adam and James Tupper (who plays Madeline’s first husband, Nathan) couldn’t sing for shit.

They don’t know shit how to sing. They are so bad. They were so bad.

Jeeeesus, OK.


So who was it?

Vallée told Vulture in the same interview that he chose A well-known Irish crooner.

So I went to Conor O’Brien, the singer of Villagers, to be Adam Scott’s voice.

There’s no hiding it.


You may know Conor O’Brien, aka Villagers, from this Mercury Prize nominated album, Becoming A Jackal.


He’s well chuffed with the sleuth appearance

Here’s the full version, it’s pretty great:
