    Yeah not great.

    One of the best heavy female singers I've heard was in some cowboy bar in Vietnam, the chick actually used her highs and sounded like Brian Johnson from ACDC, rather than trying to force her voice low and brvtal.

    For an amateur, to do that on a TV show, live, with a public that is a priori reluctant, not to mention millions of TV spectators... I think she did great

    She didn't sing the clean bit though, which is the highlight of the song.

    While I'm all for women and the death metal growls a la Angela Gosssow of Arch Enemy fame, and I can occasionally tolerate the operatic singers - even though I like them better the more they lose the opera side and go for more the straight out good singer aspect, singers like Simone Simons from Epica and Floor Jansen from After Forever/ReVamp, and now touring with Nightwish (I prefer her work with AF and ReVamp more than the stuff I've seen with Nightwish), but when I really want female fronted metal I prefer the singers more in the Leather Leone school of metal singing (Chastain).

    more the old school straight out metal stuff.

    Could any of the French speaking sneapsters translate the judges' comments into english? Really interested to see what they had to say.

    Also, 10/10, would bang :lol:

    Pretty disgusting to see the people in the audience laughing when she starts growling, though. They'd be pissed if they sang some pop in front of a metal crowd and the crowd started laughing. Shows how little tolerance they actually have for anything other than the 'norm'.

    ^Meh, the bitch started screaming in, what I assume, is a singing show. I would laugh too.

    Seriously though, can she make those damn sandwich's Viking talking about?

    Oh and this was posted in the funny pictures thread.

    They say :
    - There is such a contrast between your look and your voice, I was amazed. Wow it's strange but I appreciate.

    - Can you sing a long time like this ? (Yes) Metal ? Metal with a manly voice ? (blabla) You effectively have steel-vocal chords, that's obvious !

    - I found this cute but a little bit repetitive, for me it will be "no".

    - Miss, for me, it is gonna be "yes"

    - I think the name of the emission fits you, you have an incredible talent, for me it's gonna be "yes"

    at the end

    - If I sing like this for 2 minutes I lose my voice (he's a 80s shitty singer btw)

    - It's impressive

    - (the guy who gave her a "no") But it's true I'm actually curious to see her again, objectively. But when she's done all that, what is she gonna do then ?

    to me it sounds like she'd sound great within a mix. that basically sounds like a voice-over on top of the backing track so obviously it doesn't sound so good - it's not within proper context.

    she pretty much goes in the top 3 of female vocalists of this style for me. lows are sort of weak-ish but hey, she doesn't have nuts so what can you do

    Yes, exactly my point. Everyone thought she's gonna sing some stupid pop song... she even got two yes votes from the judges and therefore qualified to the next round. That's in a show which probably only excapt certain type of pop "stars".

    To be fair, the show is actually for any type of entertainers, whether it's singers, dance groups, people who juggle flaming cats with their feet, whatever.. so she's entitled to sing whatever the fuck she wants with whatever vocal technique she desires.

    I like it when those talent shows get to 'break' the Barbie-Ken stereotype (if even for a while), makes them almost worth watching (Paul Potts, Susan Boyle kind of thing)



    As for the OT, metal doesn't (and shouldn't) belong in popular culture shows (imo)
