Epic voice fails – they happen to the best of us

We all have good and bad voice days, and we all beat ourselves up from time to time. The following list is not exhaustive, but represents some cross-genre vocal fails that show how we ALL have to accept some vocal fails from time to time. It’s an organic instrument, and things don’t always go to plan.

Classical: Pavarotti

Here’s another, not a huge fail vocally speaking

Rock: Chris Cornell

Chris Cornell’s recorded vocals set the standard for rock vocals, but live, he could be somewhat ropey. Here’s a quick clip. If you know the song, you’ll know what I’m talking about.

Musical Theatre: Idina Menzel

This isn’t good. Wait for the horrendous missed note on the final line.

Pop: Katy Perry

Check the Youtube comments!

This list is not exhaustive, and not meant to be a slagging off of the performers, just to share that we are all human and subject to the odd vocal fail. I hope you have at least gasped, then cracked a smile in response to some of these, if so, I’ve done my job!

Oh and here’s one more that is truly epic:
