    I know, it sounded all robotic. You couldn't even hear his voice in the song.

    ..Couldnt this just go in the results thread? But I agree I didnt like it either. I pretty much FFed through all the performances. I didnt mind Kanyes though, so I dont think it was JUST the electronic portions since Kanyes song is like that too, I just think it was bad in general.

    that vocal performance was a travesty. it sounded like he was using t-pain's voice synthesizer. it's a shame because Foxx is a really good singer and that electronic modulator drowned out his voice and made him sound like a transformer. i guess he can blame that performance on the a-a-a-a-alcohol.

    Yeah, Jamie Foxx is a good singer, why does he have to act like a rapper wannabe to attract a youthful audience?

    t-pain, JUST what i thought. or timbaland. someone who needs that kind of electro-beat. sadly they never know how to use it onstage.

    unfortunately, it doesn't work on-stage. it only sounds good in-studio with the acoustics. remember kanye's performance a few short weeks ago? it was dreadful... and what made it worse was Kanye couldn't sing if his life depended on it. whoever told him he could sing well should be shot.
