There isn't much to say here.

Everybody knows Britney Spears. Everybody knows her song "Toxic" (2003). And everybody knows that song lives-up to its name by being one of the most popular yet somehow most annoying songs ever put to radio. (Dave Grohl of Nirvana and the Foo Fighters called the song "the musical equivalent of brainwash.")

Part of that is the song's auto-tuning, added no doubt to fizz-up a pop singer's less-than-stellar singing.

As it turns-out, that's just not true.

A version of "Toxic" without the auto-tuning leaked and Britney's voice is actually...

Actually quite good.

We don't know what to say, either. What on Earth are her producers auto-tuning her for if she can actually sing?
