Since Fergie’s epic fail of the national anthem during the NBA All-Star Game, the singer has been under heavy scrutiny from fans and fellow celebs. One talk show diva who’s never held her tongue is Wendy Williams, who recently said the Black Eyed Peas singer needs auto-tuning applied to her voice to sound good live.
While many in the audience agreed with the slight jab aimed at Fergie, Williams went on to name other stars she feels cannot sing “raw dog.” She included on her list Jennifer Lopez, Janet Jackson and, surprisingly for the crowd, Beyoncé.
She went on to say Adele, Aretha Franklin, Celine Dion, Dionne Warwick and Mariah Carey are the only vocalists who “need nothing” to sing well for a live audience.
