Answers To Taylor Swift’s Out Of Tune Grammy Performance

February 4th, 2010 // 7 Comments

I guess some kind of blemish had to come for Taylor Swift’s perfect sky rocketing to the top, and if one out of tune performance is it than she’ll be okay.

The CEO of Big Machine Records, Scott Borchetta, reached out to defend the singer. 

“It’s not about the technically perfect performance.”  I think he’s off there, because a Grammy performance sort is about a perfect polished performance.  At least he didn’t give an excuse.  Oh wait…

“We had a volume problem in the ear.  So, she was concerned that she wasn’t able to hear everything in the mix…That’s just part of live TV.” Okay, it’s not Ashlee Simpson acid reflux level bad so I might consider taking it.

The CEO doth protest too much though because he goes on to say “Maybe she’s not the best technical singer, but she’s probably the best emotional singer because everybody else who gets up there and is technically perfect, people don’t seem to want more of it.” (Um…who Beyonce what?) “She’s an extraordinary songwriter and her vocal performances are getting better.  Everybody is not perfect on any given day.”

The guy really needed to just put the very last line out there and shelve the rest.  If he had come out and said she had a not-perfect performance get over it, I probably would have. Now, I’m under the impression that she always sucks live. In which case, hand those four Grammys over to Lady Ga Ga.

    She does suck live. Taylor has never had a good live performance, I don’t know why they continue to let her perform on awards shows.

    Taylor writes good lyrics. That’s it.

    I was stunned at how horrible her voice sounded! Had to change channel to escape hearing that off key high pitch mousey voice of hers. *eek*

    THE TRUTH: she has no talent whatsoever. Another out of the blue manufactured “star”.

    She has never had a very good voice, she doesn’t even have that in the recording studio. Her songs are catchy and addictive so you want to hear them again. That’s it!

    She has always sucked live, I used to work at a venue and had to listen to her two days in a row and they were both terrible. On top of that, the person who had to escort her around all day said she was the most stuck up and rude person they had been around all day and they have been around people who have been in the industry for decades.

    She would do things like just stop in front of a door and stare at it and then stare at the person, before asking when they were going to open it for her.
