Kind of like this?

Has anyone actually heard her SING in the last dozen or so years? I'm not convinced she still can.

I feel badly for her, and I really don't have a huge issue with lip syncing under those conditions...outside noise and weather uncertainty, etc. Where she went wrong was lack of preparation. She should have been there in the trenches a few hours early to make sure everything would go smoothly, instead of strolling in at the last minute.
Failing that, she should have just started singing. Maybe she couldn't even hear herself, or what song was playing though.

Ignorant comments about her age and clothing aside, "just singing" to a large, noisy crowd is easier said than done, from what I've read about the technical machinations needed to pull off a show of this scale. If you can't hear the music, you can't sing or even lip sync along.

Could she have handled it better? Sure. But it's not a question of "just singing". It's never that simple - especially when the show has been rehearsed a certain way.

I thought Wendy O. William was dead?

Yeah, it's hard to know what if anything she should have done without knowing exactly what went wrong.

Why can't other megastars sing their performances? Surely it isn't that hard. She could sing her "Emotions" in her sleep, I'm sure. It's an incredibly difficult song, but she has the chops to do it. As an aside, why does dress so sleazy? I've always enjoyed her music, but put some clothes on already. She's old enough to be a grandmother, she can cover up, and everyone will still know she's a beautiful, talented lady.
Most wouldn't watch her anymore unless her boobs are hanging out.

Well, I read somewhere that she had vocal chord surgery a few years ago and her voice isn't the same as it use to be. She can still sing, just can't hit those high notes like she had been able to. We all know she can sing though.

Well, we all know she used to be able to sing. Beyond that, we don't really know.
