    I'm sure you are right, Auto Tune is in Lee's future.

    I believe autotune may be in Lee's present - don't forget that they do a studio version of the song for iTunes. I'm sure that autotune is used there.

    First, I think Lee is a fine singer... perfect? No. But look at some of the top rockers whose careers have endured and are greatly respected.... do they all have perfect voices?/ No. A bit of grit and emotion goes a long way.

    And what is Auto Tune? And please do not compare him to TS. It's not that she is not a great singer, she just flat out CAN'T sing.

    I think it's pointless to compare Lee with Taylor Swift.
    While I agree that her voice leaves a lot to be desired, it's the beautiful, poignant lyrics she writes that are her real legacy.
    A majority of singer / songwriters through the years were known for their lyrics and not their perfect pitch voicals.

    I am not a fan of Lee. I don't think he sings well at all. I do have to say though he has the right to say he is "going to try and win it all" What else should he say? " You know I don't think I will try and win, I am just going to sit on my thumbs an wait to see what happens"

    Ha! That came up earlier in the thread in the Bieber discussion. I'll just point you to the link here.

    That's my point. I think Lee has a great, gravely rocker voice, but his phrasing lacks grit and emotion. He isn't connected to the lyrics of his songs the way the great rockers are. To me, Lee is all voice and no heart. The best rockers might have small vocal ranges and rough voices, but they do sing in tune.

    And what is Auto Tune? And please do not compare him to TS. It's not that she is not a great singer, she just flat out CAN'T sing.
    Auto Tune is an electronic device that can make a singer sound in tune when they are recording CDs. This will be a requirement for Lee, cuz he won't be able to sell records singing off-key.

    Honestly, I've always heard that song as a match of a simple melody on a singer's voice along with simple instrumentation. I didn't really like the "big" version of it Lee did, but I can't decide if that's just me reacting with "change = bad" or if I really don't like it that way. I was going to go back and listen to it again after watching Glee, but ... well ... NPH and Matthew Morrison on one duet followed by Idina Menzel and Lea Michelle on another kind of distracted me from AI music for a while...

    Well, at least we all now know that the rumor floating around about Simon choosing that song due to his owning the royalty rights is wrong.
    Turns out the owner of the rights is Sony.

    Thanks, I kind of thought that is what it is. I guarantee you everyone uses it.
