Britney Spears Leaked Singing Alien Without Auto-Tune

Britney Spears - Alien NO AUTOTUNE by dioguinhoblog

Britney Spears is known for her singing prowess but this time upon hearing the leaked audio of Britney singing her song "Alien" from her latest album "Britney Jean" her 8th. The leaked audio recording has gone viral and she doesn't sound like a professional singer, she sound like a screaming old lady. It was not good to the ears.

Producer of the song, William Orbit, defended the Britney by saying that it was not official. It was just a warm-up vocal.

Here is the official explanation of William Orbit on his Facebook page:

"Dearest Music Lovers, I have heard that Britney vocal link that everybody’s been discussing. It has been impossible not to as there have been many comments directing my attention to it. [I won’t re-posting it here]. I'd like to affirm that ANY singer when first at the mic at the start of a long session can make a multitude of vocalisations in order to get warmed up.

Warming up is essential if you’re a pro, as it is with a runner doing stretches, and it takes a while to do properly. I’ve heard all manner of sounds emitted during warmups. The point is that it is not supposed to be shared with millions of listeners.

A generous singer will put something down the mic to help the engineer get their systems warmed up and at the right level, maybe whilst having a cup of herb tea and checking through lyrics before the session really kicks off. It’s not expected to be a ‘take’.

I think that 99% of you reading this will totally understand.

Whomever put this on the internet must have done so in a spirit of unkindness, but it can in no way detract from the fact that Britney is and always will be beyond Stellar! She is magnificent! And that’s that."

As for me, I'm not buying it. Most of the singers today like Beyonce, Nicki Minaj etc are depending too much on technology like auto-tune to mask their imperfection. What happened to real singers like Whitney Houston and Aretha Franklin?

Here is the song with Auto-Tune:
