The CEO of Taylor Swift's record label is coming to her defense after the singer hit a few off notes during her duet with Stevie Nicks at 2010's Grammy Awards.
Swift, 20, earned more attention for her performance than her four Grammy wins (including Album of the Year) after The New York Times called her "pitch-challenged" and the Washington Post slammed her voice as "off-key caterwauling."
Borchetta first spoke out to The Tennessean.
He said Swift's voice was off because, "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," he added. "She's an extraordinary songwriter and her vocal performances are getting better. Everybody is not perfect on any given day."
