Celebrity singers who wouldn’t have made it on ‘American Idol’

Perhaps the most unwatchable aspect of the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards were the so-called musicians who screeched out cringe-inducing musical notes in a futile effort to prove they can actually sing.

They are, to our unfortunate regret, not the only sonic assaulting eardrum bashers. Even some artists who are considered the biggest acts of their generation — if not all time — are much more entertainers than singers and would have no shot whatsoever had they gone the route of vocal competitions to attain fame.

Take a look at the celebrity singers who would have never made it on “American Idol,” or “The Voice” for that matter.
