Hayden Panettiere Sings! And Isn't Awful!

by at . Comments

She's Celine Dion, in fact, compared to the likes of Brooke Hogan. And certainly Ashlee Simpson and Britney Spears, who don't even sing in concert.

Let's put it this way. When Hayden Panettiere made her live singing debut at the Capitol Fourth concert, she more than held her own... and made many teen boys hold theirs.

Sorry. But seriously, she's halfway decent - and this isn't her day job!

If her rendition of "Try" (see video below) were up against the likes of this season's crop of American Idol aspirants, Hayden would lose to the elite contenders - Jordin Sparks, Blake Lewis and Melinda Doolittle - but she'd give everyone else a good run.

Here's Hayden Panettiere signing in D.C. on Wednesday, July 4 ...

What do you think? Is Hayden Panettiere worthy of a record contract? Or is her producer, J.R. Rotem, only working with her so he can ... well, you know.

Her voice suits country music. When she was singing Try in Washington she kinda mixed abit of country vocals in it.

She sucks! What a horrible waste of time. Do NOT watch this. You'll have wasted 3 minutes you'll never get back.

Hayden should stick to acting. She;ll never win any awards for her acting range, but at least she gets paid to do it. Shut up and act, Hayden, before someone figures out you don't even do that well.
