a swift rebuttal: a problem in the ear

in the last several days, big machine records ceo scott borchetta has felt the need to explain taylor swift's grammy performance:
"This is not 'American Idol.' This is not a competition of getting up and seeing who can sing the highest note. This is about a true artist and writer and communicator. It's not about that technically perfect performance.

We had a volume problem in the ear. So, she was concerned that she wasn't able to hear everything in the mix. That's just part of live TV... You're going to have difficulties on occasion.

Maybe she's not the best technical singer. But she's probably the best emotional singer because everybody else who gets up there and is technically perfect, people don't seem to want more of it... She's an extraordinary songwriter and her vocal performances are getting better. Everybody is not perfect on any given day."
i'll say one thing for swift's vocals on grammy night: at least she wasn't auto-tuned.
