    Something that sticks in my mind is when Britney sang (I can't remember which award show it was - she was dating Justin at the time) and when they'd flash to him, while she was singing, he was totally focused on her and kind of coaching her.. mouthing the words and really hoping she'd nail it. Does anyone remember that? I wonder if she was lip syncing? (the song was 'Im not a girl, not yet a woman'- don't know if that's the correct title)

    You know, I don't know if this whole singing-voice-sounds-like-her-speaking-voice thing works to try to sort this all out. If a record company was going to pull something off like this, then they'd def cover that base, because it would be a dead-giveway otherwise.

    I think Jessica Simpson cannot sing for crap. Could be her.

    Still think Jenninfer Lopez/ J.lo is a STRONG possibity. Plus, she was a DANCER all her life; I don't know of any voice or singing training. This singing thing came out of nowhere.

    Britney Spears I doubt b/c I've seen videos of her singing as a young child and she really does have a decent voice. Nearly everyone on Mickey Mouse Club has some sort of vocal talent, as that was before the advent of constant editing and heavy computer sound enhancements etc.

    IMO, Jlo sings like she speaks...she's not a great singer and much of her singing, it sounds more like she's just talking than actually singing (if that makes sense).

    Brit could be a good guess, her newer songs don't sound like how she used to sing.

    I also think some R&B/hip hop kinda singers like Ashanti and Rhianna are good guesses.

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    Britney would certainly shake up the music world. I actually thought Britney sang better when she was younger than she does now.

    ^Seriously, back when i was fan (we all mistakes), I watched some tv special about her childhood and they showed footage of her performing the song 'Love Can Build A Bridge' and she could really sing! The thing is though, Britney sang in Crossroads, and didn't sound much different to her albums. Which is why I dont think its her.

    If its someone like Michelle Branch, i'm going to kick some ass, because..... BIG DEAL. Not that we're ever going to find out, but it better be huge.

    I like Jessica Simpson for this. When I heard one of her first singles on the radio, not knowing who she was, I thought it was Mariah Carey singing - it was fantastic. Now, on her later stuff, she basically can't sing at all, there's just no real talent there - and we know how desperate that whole family is for fame.

    I'm not sure how well the album success clues fit her though; I'd have to go back and read this again.

    Well it's true that if it came out as Jessica, it would be huge which is part of the blind item. I agree that her early videos show her singing pretty well. But lately she simply cannot sing at all, and in addition she's an absolute spastic when she's performing. I literally get nauseated, cringe, get pissed, when she comes on - I have to turn the channel. Few people have that effect upon me. Who does she think she's kidding?!

    So it very well could be Jessica. I mean, look at the recent flub-up. She was so nervous at being found out about the lack of ability in front of ALL those amazing biz people including her idol.

    Hmmm, could be jessica. The blind did make a reference to Ashlee Simpson, maybe that was a clue. But for some reason i dont think its her. On Newlyweds she used to visit doctors for her voice, maybe she damaged it. She used to sing really well.

    I like the Jessica guess. Does the timeline fit for her like it did for JLo?

    I think Jessica's voice has gone downhill because of her coke consumption...eats away all the membranes vital to her voice, that's whay she's lost the ability. I still like J.Lo for this one.

    I have an entirely new approach to this, even though some people (including myself) won't like this:

    What about Pink?

    The timeline is correct: Her first album came out in 2000, her second in 2002.

    She has been in a Pepsi commercial, she has been on world wide tours, she is known for her amazing voice.

    Nobody would guess Pink for this BI, because her image is all about genuineness, as opposed to Britney or Jessica Simpson.

    Her singing voice does sound somewhat like her speaking voice, but I'm sure, they'd cover that.

    And even though she was supposedly in the church choir as a kid, there are no TV or radio appearances of the kind that Britney, Christina or Beyonce have done as kids.

    I have entirely too much time on my hands. I got on YouTube and found videos of all the suspects singing live.

    Jessica Simpson (I really do not think it is her):

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QcCetWiod4
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5sqOuOLZtU

    Britney Spears (I am COMPLETELY convinced it isn't her.)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5sqOuOLZtU
    ^^ she isn't even lip synching in a believable way there.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGtxsid1Uks
    ^^ that one she doesn't seem to be. She's singing Silent Night live.

    Britney Spears on StarSearch when she was 9:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9YKJ_9wn4w

    A young Britney & Christina Agulerra live: (I think this rules out both of them)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uc_SQ7bH2kM

    Jennifer Lopez (not convinced that she isn't lip snyching in these clips. She always wears something to cover her vocal chords so you cant see if she's using her voice! And the backup singers seem to carry her):
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXoM6RrDlBc
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B62Xx5G5T1o
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=879zbEjcPEQ

    This clip is a bit better. I think she is singing a bit on this, but the backup singers carry her ALOT:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3kJysgovtg

    Norah Jones (its SO not her):
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NDuj-MyVyA
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGnmobuHqog

    Michelle Branch (also so clearly not her):
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3ls_tqhs5A
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fB4UFnHg_AA

    Shania Twain (also so not her- this is from the same event that Jessica Simpson screwed up recently, so we know there wasnt any tech wizardry):
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9yhOM33IRM

    Avril Lavigne (not her):
    As a kid:

    Ya'll.. its J.Lo. Seriously.
