Are there any films of musicals from the last 10 years where the performers do not actually mime their way through the performances?
I'm always disappointed when you see people miming along to music - the High School Musical franchise is a perfect example of this - as you lose most of the actual emotion that the song conveys when it is pre-recorded in a studio, and then mimed to during the actual movie.

It was even disappointing that the artists mimed along to the X-Factor version of 'Hero' this weekend - we are supposed to be judging them on their live performances, and then they mime badly! (BTW - where were Ruth and Daniel during the 'live' performance?)

Are there any movies of musicals where the actors actually perform them during the filming?

I'd love to think that Jennifer Hudson performed her songs live in Dreamgirls, for example...
