Voice Teacher Reacts to 6 HARDEST Vocals Singers CAN'T/DON'T Sing ANYMORE

  • Published on Aug 28, 2018
  • Voice teacher Sam Johnson's reaction to Kelly Clarkson, Miley Cyrus, Leona Lewis, Demi Lovato, and Christina Aguilera singing their hardest vocals.
    I hope this observation on how they sing helps you figure out how the voice works better, so you can learn how to make smart choices in your own voice.

    11:50 disagree. If you're performing at the level Christina is and charging people $100 minimum to attend a show you should be performing everything yourself, not throwing in samples to "even" things out. Neil Pert didn't mime his solos, Clapton didn't let a record play when he didn't feel he could perform a song, singers shouldn't be allowed to completely dodge their responsibilities. If you don't think you can perform a piece the way it initially was then ad-lib around it, don't cheat the audience by playing a backing track.

    Very entertaining, interesting perspective on introducing lip-synching. I haven't really listened to any of these performers (it's mainly a style thing), but coming out of this vid, I thought Christina might be worth a try.

    Wolfgang Romine Month ago

    I think people are way too hard on singers, not realizing that if they're on tour they're singing for about 2 hours each night back to back every day for weeks, and some of these notes are really hard to hit and damage your vocal cords. Like with the christina thing, she did fine. She probably knew her voice was sore that day and planned ahead to use the album vocals instead of her own.

    I think Miley originally did it high cause she was young and "other singers go this high, why not me?" And four years later now that she's matured and has grown, she's coming to terms with the fact she's an alto, which is why she lowered it to fit her range

    You are likely to not read this (after all this time) but I've watched a few of these videos now (with you) and realize you probably know what the hell the you are talking about.
    So, first, thanks for sharing your knowledge. Second, even more importantly (for me) you've suddenly made me realize (and believe) that there are techniques I can "learn". Not just talents one is either born with or not. I have been an avid guitarist and songwriter for years. But always considered my singing as absolute crap and (as I am not a singer) something that would always be crap.., regardless how much I practice. I just cant sing well. So I don't. Except my own stuff, which, obviously, sounds like crap because I am singing! (the quitars are awesome though.. heheheh)
    You have given me two really important things: 1) Hope that I can actually improve to be an "okay" singer, (I'm a VP sales for a large tech company, I understand how much belief in what you are doing is! It is everything.) and 2) HOW I can actually get there! Answer: Take some goddam lessons from a skilled teacher! This may seem obvious to all others who watch your channel (singers, likely) but it is not obvious to many others or even other musicians. I, like many, just think my voice sucks, therefore I am not nor ever will be a singer. I just didnt try.
    So, I shall go find a vocal coach. Horrify him/her the first day, no doubt. But now with some confidence that I am going to actually learn techniques that are going to really improve my voice. I'll never be a Maria Carey. I dont expect to be, or actually even want to be (I'd rather be a Jimmy Page or Eddie Van Halen).
    So really cool to see your videos. Really helpful stuff! Thanks Bro.

    Tell people who are losing their voices not to whisper, it's harder on the vocals. That aside, I love watching stuff like this because I can't hear what you are hearing at all because i don't have an ear for music.

    So I used to have a pretty good voice for someone that was never taught any technique, but I’ve suffered from multiple severe cases of laryngitis in the passed few years, and it physically hurts my chest and throat to sing now and it doesn’t sound great at all, any recommendations for me to get back into singing?

    Um Kelly has hit g5s consistently (and higher) on numerous live performances recently. She is actually better. Anyho, Kelly is one of the best singers of all time and I get tired of everyone reviewing Christina and Arianna and Beyonce over and over. Not that I do or don't like them, but, from someone who likes to hear comments from knowledgeable people there are very few Kelly reactions. A few days ago she has hit higher insane notes live on tour both in Oakland and Las Angeles.
