If you want slo-mo, they would have to sing faster, proportional to how slow you are shooting. i.e. if you shoot 48 fps which is half speed, they would have to sing twice as fast so as to compensate for the slow motion.
I've never tried it, but I'm sure it will take some practice to get it just right.

Also, I'm no moderator, but they will also tell you, that per forum rules you need to change your display name to your full first-last name.

Good Luck

I've done it several times. The singer should have the sped up track as much in advance as possible in order to practice singing at the new speed. This technique tends to exagerate all facial ticks - can make things look very emotional.
It's also a great way to get the lipsync stuff done fast!

Has anybody tried it the other way, singing slow and speeding it up to normal?

I've never done it personally, but I've definitely seen it done in music videos. As you can imagine the performer's movement become kind of jerky and twitchy looking. It's especially effective when quick movements are broken up with slower or static motion, which appears "normal" in comparison.
