did the actors in the temptations movie sing, or were they lipsyncing the original songs?

They were lipsyncing. Most actors lipsync when they play a historical musical artist. Like the guy that plays frankie in "Why do fools fall in love", and Angela Bassett when she played Tina Turner in "What's love go to do with it?". Lou Diamond Phillips also lipsynced when he did "La Bamba" played the role of Ritchie Valens. Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon actually used their real voice for "Walk The Line", and so did Jamie Foxx in "Ray".
