Osbourne, Carey And Dion Named Worst Singers Ever

OZZY OSBOURNE, MARIAH CAREY, and CELINE DION have been branded the "worst singers of all time". The poll, carried out by British music magazine Q, lauds ELVIS PRESLEY as "the greatest voice of all time", but singles out popular stars such as Dion and Carey for their vocal inability. The judging panel says, "(Mariah Carey) may have an 100-octave range and the ability to sing so loudly that birds' nests fall from tress, but that doesn't make it right. "(Celine Dion) grinds out every note as if bearing some grudge against the very notion of economy." But the magazine's most scathing remarks are reserved for former BLACK SABBATH frontman Osbourne, who "now sings like he speaks - this may be a cause for sympathy but not for buying his albums". YOKO ONO, LIMP BIZKIT star FRED DURST and "any death metal singer" were also among those criticised for their singing.

WHAT THE FFFFUUU......????????Y'know what; 3 points reinforce the pure unadulterated NONSENSE of this entire DRIVEL with the audacity to masquerade as an 'article' and stop me spitting fire right now;1. 'Q' magazine isn't exactly the first publication that comes to mind when I think of literary focus on SOULFUL, INSPIRING musical excellence...2. They have a proven record of openly hostile bias toward Mariah Carey - just check any single reference to her in their 'publication'.3. They name Elvis 'Plagiarism' Presley as their no.1? Like, seriously? And they're not EMBARRASSED to admit that to THEMSELVES, never mind in PUBLIC? And they call Mariah fans DEMENTED?!?At least Mariah never had to STEAL anyone's writing or style to make a career for herself - she earned her STILL grossly undervalued status in musical and cultural history the good ol' fashioned way - with her OWN talents! You know good'n'well the same facts can NEVER be applied to that con artist!!!

I dont' know, if we'd be fair maybe we'll have to recognize Mercury as the best singer ever,probably followed by Jim Morrison.I don´t think Ozzy sings bad, is just a style, just as death metal singers,but most people are not familiarized with it.
