Britney Gets Sloppy Seconds

1/23/2009 5:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

One of the "amateur" contestants on this season's "American Idol" not only has recorded a song for a major movie soundtrack -- but also the damn thing was just covered by Britney Spears.

Before Joanna Pacitti got the gold ticket on Wednesday night's episode, she struck gold with her song "Out from Under," which was featured on the "Bratz" soundtrack in 2007 ... before it was covered on Britney's new album, Circus.

Joanna is a hack amateur and sucks mightily. She doesn't have the high register to even touch that tune. No way, no how.

And yes, I totally agree - Britney's voice is manufactured. If she were to sing the tune with the amount of processing Joanna sings it with, she'd suck just as bad as Joanna, and probably worse.

It's a dual suckation, that's what it is. Thank God for YT. There's gobs of unsigned musical talent on there that beats these two losers hands down - if you just get off your ass, ignore the buttons at the top left, and dig for it. IT'S THERE!!

Joanna's version is better - hands down. Her voice is beautiful. I can't understand why I never heard of this girl until now. They say she had a record deal but what kind of deal was it. She has the voice, the look, etc. Its obvious what she lacked was a record label that promoted her music properly. Shame on them. Hopefully American Idol will give her the opportunity to share her talent with the rest of the world. Seriously, if it weren't for Justin (NSYNC) and his label promoting Britney the way they did, we wouldn't have heard of Britney either. Best of Luck Joanna!!!

One voice is real, the other is completely fake and manufactured. Joanna's is a much better version.

Okay, what happened to the days when American Idol was about discovering talent that hadn't yet been heard? Now it seems that everyone that auditions and makes it has already had work released.

Good picture of Brit Brit. You sort of get a flavor of the evil inside. This is the real Britney, not the weaved, air-brushed, lip-synched, audio-enhanced, professionally made-up and costumed version she wants to put out.

Britney's only seems to sound better because of the music in my opinion. Id rather hear Joanna sing it.

Listening to the two there are obvious differences other than Brritney just plain sucking..

1) joanna's is better. Why? she actually sings. The track is mainly her voice, which, while its not the best, is pretty good.

2) Britney's voice is worse. Why? her voice is lowered in volume while the synth track is louder to mask her flaws. Midway through you can hear her voice strain at the high note. joanna's wasn't on 100% but she did a better job of hitting it without being masked.

So joanna and real voice > Britney and synthed track.... I give the edge, not by much for Joanna. Now if Britney sang acapella, then it be a murder.. Brit would get slammed more than a crazy person on a gurney.
