The worst of YouTube KaraokeMay 27th, 2009 | By Zach | Category: Blogs, Video

Everybody wants to be a rock star. But most of us just keep our performances relegated to the car with the radio loud so no one else is seriously afflicted. Technology is changing all that, now, and with the power of YouTube you can let the whole world hear your feeble skills in the hopes of getting famous. Without further ado, I present some of the worst “musical” performances I could find on YouTube.
I Will Always Love You – Made famous by Whitney Houston, performed here by some kid named Asif.
Perhaps Asif should realize that he is twelve, his voice just changed, and picking a woman’s song to broadcast to the world was just not the best idea at this stage of his life.I applaud the effort, but cringe at the high notes.
McDonald’s Rap – Performed by Garden City Stud
You got to love the handmotions that go with this “freestyle” rap. We could be looking at the next Vanilla Ice.
Blowin in the Wind – Made famous by Bob Dylan performed here by Wonnep
Not sure what country this dude is from, but his accent makes this one strange rendition of Blowin in the Wind.
We Are the World – Made famous in 1985 for USA for Africa, performed here by a bunch of nobodies.
This webcam version of the superstar-filled 1985 performance is, well, creative, I guess. I think this is actually a parody, but I’m not sure.
Love Story – Made famous by Taylor Swift, performed here by Ryan Ferr
This pre-pubescent 12-year-old’s performance really isn’t that bad, but man, he’s making it too easy. He may clarify that this is the guy version of Taylor Swift in the title, but that doesn’t change the fact that he sounds like a girl. This will make some great black mail in a couple years.
No Place that Far – Made famous by Sarah Evans, performed here by Ashley Heslop
Ashley, just cause you have a camera doesn’t make you famous. Good luck with the Sara-oke contest (where she hopes to sing onstage with Sarah Evans), but you might want to get in key first. Painful.
