I've seen a lot of photos of pop musicians wearing headphones while they are recording, which is high tech equivalent.

Anyone who says that the cupped hand doesn't help them hearing themselves when singing, especially in a noisy environment, either hasn't ever tried it, or they must be deaf in that ear. For an unaccompanied singing, if anything, the affectation is to make a point of keeping your hands away from the ear.
