Holding a tune and keeping it in tune is not difficult when you learn to sing the right way whether live with a teacher or even following simple online lessons. But here’s a prime example of someone that has tried to by pass the whole process and still needs to learn to become a singer in front of Britney Spears.
The auditions for the new X-Factor in the US are under way with some surprising auditions with one in particular that made Britney Spears walk off set in disgust according to omg at yahoo.
Note to future X Factor hopefuls: Don’t cover Britney Spears‘ greatest hits, or risk not making it to the next round!
During The X Factor auditions in Greensboro, North Carolina July 9, Spears was at a loss for words when a contestant dressed in drag performed a cover of her 1999 smash, “(You Drive Me) Crazy.”
Spears, 30, looked visibly bothered as the male contestant, dressed partially as a woman in cat glasses and a bedazzled jean jacket, struggled to sing her pop classic. The Grammy winner eventually left the judges’ table and joined her fiance, Jason Trawick, 40, in the production pit; Demi Lovato, 19, and L.A. Reid, 56, followed Spears off stage, though Simon Cowell, 52, stayed behind to critique the aspiring singer.
Learn to become a singer that doesn’t scare her away
“I don’t think she quite understood your tribute,” Cowell told the X Factor hopeful. “You’ve got to be able to sing in tune. There wasn’t a note in tune.”
There’s a saying that any spectacular success is preceded by over 10,000 hours of preparation. And I guess in the episode the preparation comes from the right singing exercises, the right lessons and the right level of practice. Lets hope that others have taken the steps to learn to become a singer that does not scare Britney off. But on the other hand it probably makes for good TV.
