A girl who got a record deal based on her already-present fame, rather than vocal talent.
Her voice is horrible, despite the digital altering. Hilary Duff makes Britney Spears sound like Mariah Carey.
And, on top of that, Hilary doesn't even write her own songs (which is a scary thought anyway). Her singing is pretty much monotone; she has a pathetic voice range.
Let's just say that she wouldn't stand a chance on American Idol.
(on American Idol, before Hilary's fame)
Hilary: Today I'll be performing "Why Not" for you! Omigosh, I'm sooo gonna be the next American Idol.
Paula: We're ready when you're ready.
Hilary (singing): Why not, take a crazy chance, why not, do a crazy dance---
Simon: Spare us! STOP! My GOD, you sound like a dying goat! Agh, my ears..
Hilary: B-b-but, I'm like, so pretty!
