When exhaling loudly counts as talent

I was in my local Rogers video the other day, and they had a Christina Aguilera DVD playing on the store TVs.

At the end of every fucking song, she'd break into an extended, 90-second segment of "Whooo-oooooaaaaa-oooo-oooo[deeper voice]ooo-oooo[/deeper voice]oooooaaaaaaa-ooooooo-whoa-oo-OO-oo..."

I honestly wanted to walk out of the store.

When did this shit start passing for talent? Slaguilera is far from being the only offender, but whenever I see (mostly R&B) singers do this during a live performance, the crowd eats it up. :confused:

Is this supposed to be a demonstration of vocal dexterity or something? It sounds like shit. I'd be more impressed if they sang "do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti-do" for a minute and a half.

She can belt... but she can't sing.

She's no different from Mariah Carey... except that Xtina hasn't got really bad boob implants yet.

She followed in Brittney's footsteps again by being the Sketcher girl. Man is it a bad picture in the store. Her face looks doughy, that ratty black hair ain't happening, and she's busting the wide fish net stockings and running shoes - ugh.

If she doesn't want to go back to blonde she should try redheading it.

I blame Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey for inspiring a generation of singers who go over board with the flourishes.

Nirvana and Pearl Jam don't sound alike...plus they formed around the same time.

And Christina is a MUCH better singer with Britney...she's be the one with the long career. But I agree, she needs to quit it with the over-singing...and the weird "HAH!" she adds between lines.

She did a simple version of "At Last" on SNL years ago and she sounded great...all bluesy and understated. So she can NOT oversing when she wants to.

I fully agree, and it drives me mental. What we end up with are loads of singers who can belt and who can't sing softly at all.

I am not a fan of the flourishes. It gets overdone far too much.

grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr..ok I am really pissy faced today due to a serious lack of sleep and yakking for 2 days.

Stop comparing Britney to Christina. I don't understand this.
Britney cannot sing a note to save her life. she sucks cock. I hope she sucks cock better than she sings at least! although, I doubt it.

Christina can sing. peroid.
Britney can eat a dick.

it's like comparing apples n tomatoes

IMO:)
