I need to do a performance this summer

Answers:

Well, they certainly should be able to memorize an album.

Hi Juan. As other people have stated, the ear-pieces you see performers using are monitors so they can hear their voice over the music. I currently play in a band. We use floor monitors instead of ear-pieces. Although I'm not the "lead" singer, I do sing an album's worth of songs throughout our 4-hr gigs. It's all from memory. Sometimes I flub a line or sing the same verse twice. Nobody but the band notices unless you stop singing. The important thing is to just go on like it's part of the arrangement.

Through the years, I've played with many lead singers who were reliant on a songbook. Of course it was just a security blanket...they knew the words by heart. Sometimes when learning a new song, I used to take a sheet of paper and write the first word of each verse in big letters (with a marker) and lay it on the floor...just as a prompt. Currently, our lead singer has an iPad mounted to her mic stand with the words to all her songs. You can buy special mounts for this. It's a lot more discreet than using a music stand. The audience probably doesn't notice until she starts flipping through screens between songs.

Bottom line is that most performers are quite capable of memorizing dozens of songs......it's part of being a real performer.

I've done numerous live shows with singers. No, they don't have earpieces feeding them lyrics. It's no more difficult than actors remembering their lines, and probably less so because there's a rhythm to go with the words.

The earpiece allows them to monitor (hear) the band and their own voice. Bands used to have wedge-shaped monitors pointing onto the stage for the same purpose.

Occasionally any singer might forget lyrics but any singer could easily remember the lyrics to one album. There are singers who could sing many hours worth of songs without problems.

No, not at all. That's an in-ear monitor so you can hear the final mix. It's not for lyrics. You're supposed to remember the lyrics. Good luck with your performance.

Don’t they use a TelePrompTer. Why wouldn’t they remember their lyrics. Most songs have a chorus so that’s easy to remember since it’s repeated several time and it’s probably stuck in their head.

Of course singers can memorise an entire album. That's quite easy for many people.
My daughter's a singer and an actor and she has about 100 songs memorised with no trouble at all, and can also memorise an entire play - even one by Shakespeare - in about a week or two.

They just make it all up as they go along and, by coincidence, the lyrics sound the same as the album versions.
