By the way, i did see American Idol in different countries, and man, what a beauty...so many good voices out there...we should really bring them here in the US...they would all make fortunes...just go to youtube and type, like "Ukraine got talent", "Turkey got talent"...especially that 12 year old kid impersonating Michael Jackson...i said oh my God! So cool!

Rihanna. Her voice goes right through me. She's so nasal.

Stone Birds.....

joanna newsom :: She sounds like Lisa Simpson. lol

she & him :: I like her voice..

third video is 'blocked in my country'

califone :: hard to tell, because I wasn't enjoying the song.

cocorosie :: a bit quirky for my liking.


Overall, I wouldn't say any of them were bad singers though.


What do you think of Ingrid Michaelson? This is one of my favourites of hers:

This entire block of youtube videos makes me feel ridiculously indie just by looking at it.

well, i don't really have a full list of 10 singers who can't sing but i do know a lot of singers that has their flows. so i'm just going to list down the ten singers who have technical difficulties and struggles when they sing. note: some of them are great singers but i just have to point out their mistakes:

10. Jennifer Lopez - she's the type who needs a lot of auto-tuning. her voice is very weak. she can be a decent singer, but it's the type of singing that's only good for disco songs or dance music. entertaining, but not so much of a talent.

9. Britney Spears - low notes to regular notes, she actually sounds good. in fact, she managed to record a couple of songs that i do remember as vocally impressive. however, she lacks vocal power. when she hits a high note, the tone diminishes dramatically and the sound of struggle in her voice is just too obvious.

8. Lady Gaga - her voice sounds very full. but she has that habit of being monotonous. very evident especially on born this way wherein she did not even went lower or higher. she just have that same flat note maintained all throughout the song which makes her sound very boring, vocally.

7. Fantasia - stage presence, she's the best performer next to Aretha, personally. but the constant screeching of her voice in every song is just too painful. it's too obvious that she compensates not hitting those high notes properly by plain screeching. good thing she adds very powerful emotions when she screeches live, otherwise, she would just sound like donald duck.

6. Miley Cyrus - her voice isn't mature enough. yes, pitch wise she's fine. but the quality of her voice is just too annoying to hear for long periods of time. too put it more bluntly, she does not have soul.

5. Shakira - she does not have consistency. it's like she's mimicking too many artists in one song. sometimes she sounds like britney, christina, mariah, etc. and she needs to let go of her constant yodeling. she's like copying the sound of a howling wolf.

4. Madonna - she's very lucky that almost all of her songs are made and composed to specifically make her sound good. her voice is totally a typical of any woman who can memorize a tune but never actually having that natural singer sound. it's hard to tell whether she's singing or just talking with harmony. she's totally a bad singer.

3. Brandy - too breathy. she's like a poor man's version of Mariah Carey. the huskiness of her voice helped, but not enough to overshadow her nasal sound. and her low notes are awful.

2. Mandy Moore - another Mariah Carey wanna be. also very breathy and i just don't like her singing style of exhaling too much after every line she sings. it's like she's always out of breath and does not show any ability to even lift a note.

1. Christina Aguilera - one of the most powerful singers ever, but her constant need to show off her vocal prowess is just too much. I love me some christina but she needs to stop shouting, and screaming and unnecessary belting. oversinging is one of her greatest flaws. during her live performances, she sings one line that can just be sung for like 5 seconds but because of her silly vocal acrobats and stupid singing stunts, it's taking her almost forever to finish singing that one line.

there.

Not a bad post. I agree on almost all of it, except for Shakira sometimes sounding like Britney and others. She has an atrocious voice, but i'll admit i could stomach the singing if she would just keep shaking dat ass.
