Wow.

Just WOW!

by believing all possible evil of evil men.

I had no idea she could sing like that. I admit I'm not all that familiar with her music and have heard things I have liked, but that was an absolutely beautiful performance.

Rats. I'll have to watch it later.

She has a great voice! I like her a lot, even if some of what she does isn't to my taste. I admire her creativity and talent.

I don't get out much, so I'm completely unfamiliar with her work, so I ripped off your post, d.

But WOW!


Murdered it.

There are a lot of great female vocalists but few really have such a purity of voice, like a perfect musical instrument. Hers could be used to calibrate tuning forks.

God, she was great!

She's in the wrong end of the business.

...Anyone else get a strong "young Barbara Streisand" vibe offa that performance?

When is she going to start doing movie musicals?

I was quite surprised. After the other musical performances, most of which I thought were absolutely pathetic, she sang those songs with heart and feeling.

Absolutely.

Early on, I saw her as just another pop singer who was more performer than singer.

Then there was Evita. She worked hard at becoming a singer and nailed it.

Just because a performer sounds okay on an album doesn't mean that they have talent.

It's called "autotune." It's why modern "performers" are seldom called "singers" these days. Most popular performers can't sing very well or with much range. In the studio, they rely upon engineers to set their voices to the right pitch and to match the beat. On stage, they rely upon what amounts to modern conjuring tricks, distracting choreography and pre-recorded voice-tracks to put on an entertaining and lucrative show without having to have any particular talent of their own.

Sometimes, a performer starts out with a bit of talent, but drugs and other temptations quickly steal that away. Whether Lady GaGa had talent to begin with or not (personally, I think she did), it was debatable whether she still had any talent years later.

That's why this was a pleasant surprise.

I'm of a mind that Auto-tune intentionally for effect, is on a par with reverb or any other vocal effect. This entry is pretty well-researched:
[en.wikipedia.org]
After seeing Foster the People and War on Drugs last year, my attitude is that any vocal effect (in moderation) is fine as long as it doesn't make your voice sound worse than it actually is.

for effect is fine. like putting pepper on your meal.

you don't put 1/4" of ground pepper over your whole plate. it ruins the food.

don't call yourself a cook if all you can do is over-season the dish.

Madonna DID work hard for Evita, and lived through her Oscar vocals, but she had to, as she was notorious for having to be "fixed" in the studio. She was never the musician that Lady Gaga is, nor have the vocal ability.

While studio fixing that will sell a whole package and make everyone money is ok, it is a great relief to hear someone from the pop side who can "bring it" to other styles on their own.

Jennifer Hudson and John Legend were strong, too, but I've yet to hear them (or others) cross over as Lady Gaga done has so well.

Great rendition on vocals, fakey playing on the suitcase, however. Yeah, we know she can play, but she's not really playing here.

Stevie, on the other hand...

Still, she's a genuine talent with more depth than most anyone else on the national stage at the moment.

I wasn't familiar with her music until about a year ago when she had a special on TV (I think with the muppets). During that special, she went head-to-head with Elton John on dualing pianos. I was like "wow"! Since then, I kind of have kept an eye on her. Lot of her stuff not totally my taste. But, I have come to consider her as "very talented" as well. I thought she nailed it too last night on the Sound of Music song.

I've thought GaGa was a wonderful singer for a long time. She would frequently break out of her mold while performing live on talk shows and you could tell she had a great deal of depth to her talents. I think it's great for someone to use their wealth and fame as an opportunity to explore various sides of their personality.

To touch on that lip sync live performances thing - when I did professional audio and kept up with industry trends, I gave up on any really choreographed shows. I learned how an engineer set up a Pro Tools rig under Janet Jacksons stage and played her "live" concert from there. Now I believe they mix a bit of live voice with the prerecorded track. This is NOT a comment related to Lady Gaga's really impressive performance.

I never said it was bad. It's simply inhuman.

Audio engineers work miracles on people's voices. Hearing the before-and-after is incredible. And they can do it live for stage-shows, too.

Anyone with a little knowledge and an expensive plugin can take William Hung and turn him into Ricky Martin in real-time. Except for the dancing. Nobody can fix that.

OK, real quick. I'll pick the Top 20 of the Billboard list that you posted. Each performer "randomly" appearing in the list you chose in the top 20 are quality singers. I know singers. Trust me, whatever music "you" like and enjoy, I'll bet you I also like and enjoy it. BUT, I don't stop there. I keep going. You should too. I know what I know because I'm open to enjoying anything worth enjoying. I enjoyed the stupid William Hung song for a minute. Pick any one at random. That's just being kind of a hater man.

1. Bruno Mars. A gifted writer and singer. A gifted "live" singer. Superior performer.
2. Ed Sheeran. A gifted newcomer. Sings, plays and writes.
3. Hozier. A very entertaining singer songwriter that sings and sings and sings unencumbered live.
4. Rihanna, Kanye and Paul McCartney. Kanye uses Autotune because he doesn't care. I've seen Rihanna live several times and Paul is Paul. Love Rihanna.
5. Maroon 5. Everybody knows Adam Levine can sing his butt off.
6. Elie Goulding. Sings her ass off live. A very good artist.
7. Taylor Swift. The premier singer/songwriting genius of her generation. Would rank in your generation as well.
8. Sam Smith. Not my cuppa tea but I know he can sing well live
9. Meghan Trainor. Chick can sing smoothly as butter.
10. Taylor Swift again. She is the bomb.
11. Sam Smith. Can sing all by himself.
12. Earned It. Not that familiar but I can tell he can sing.
13. Pitbull and Neyo. Pitibull does his thing and Neyo can flat out sing.
14. Usher and Juicy J. Trying to tell me Usher can't sing?
15. Taylor Swift yet again. Sings her butt off.
16. Fall Out Boy. I like them but I don't know about them live.
17. Meghan Trainor. All about that singing live.
18. Nick Jonas. No autotune.
19. Nicki Minaj, Drake, Lil Wayne & Chris Brown. Rappers and Chris Brown can sing very well. Nicki can sing too.
20. Sia. Seen her sing live too many times. Great artist.

The only primal chord it touches for me is when people diminish or trivialize the efforts of others. We're entitled to like what we like and dislike what we don't. If you say things that aren't true it spreads. I know you are a smart person and have great tastes. But it almost comes natural to be dismissive "Most popular performers can't sing very well or with much range." That's simply not true. It's also not important. A good song is a good song. We'd never know Bruce Springsteen or Tom Waits if that were the case.

Check out newbie Ella Henderson. There is no way you won't like her. [www.youtube.com]

Thanks for bringing my attention to this RAMd®d.
Nice to see the lady getting out of freak mode and really showing her talent. That was a hell of a performance.

Anyone with a little knowledge and an expensive plugin can take William Hung and turn him into Ricky Martin in real-time.

That's a gross over-simplification.

You obviously haven't heard Britney Spears singing without pitch-correction.

As I said, you are engaging in a gross over simplification with your statement.
