Why not just sing the song?

No one cares if you miss a note here or there.

Smeggy Smurf: Is there anything not fake about Fartbongo? Other than the drones

Is there anything not fake about Beyonce? She wore a plastic bubble under her clothes to make herself look pregnant.

It was too cold to sing well. Your vocal chords tighten up, and trying to reach some of those notes at that temperature, had the potential to damage her voice.

Many professional singers I know, won't even drink anything cold before they sing, and some even gargle warm water.

Next time let's just have an opera singer who doesn't need to be auto-tuned sing it.

moothemagiccow: red5ish: This is an outrage. Well, no, actually it is absurdly trivial.

I think it's pretty farked up that she'd rather look good than sing well and is still adored by the public.

I think it's pretty farked up that after years and years of this, people still don't understand that this is S.O.P., no matter who the artist, for a gig like this.

We need to bring back songs like do wah diddy or da do do do, da dah dah dah dah.

Now THOSE are lyrics that will make you cry everytime.

She looks good. She looks fine.
She looks good, she looks fine, and she really blows my mind.

As I understand it, they have every artist pre record so that if the sound system gets farked up, it doesn't cut out on National TV. IIRC, the sound they play at the event itself is still the real deal. They did the same thing with Yo Yo Ma last time around, there was some stupid outrage article in the tabloids over that too.

Honest question. Is there anybody here who would call themselves a fan of her music? To each his own, de gustibus non est disputandum, etc. But I genuinely can't understand an adult listening to her.

If I recall, the entire orchestra faked it for the 2009 inauguration. It's not a big deal.
