Hey, kids: This was how good you had to be before Auto Tune

Auto Tune, the pitch correction software used by too many artists these days, makes it possible for anyone to sound like a perfect singer. Hell, it even works on me and that says something.

But what did singers do before Auto Tune? They had to be good. Naturally good with tons of God-given talent. This is how it was done before studio f*ckery came into play. Yes, Michael Jackson was THAT good of a singer.
