If you listen to music today, you're bound to hear some if not most artists aided by Auto-Tune, a phase vocoder that corrects pitch in vocal performances.

Thus, it has enabled individuals with no ability to sing, such as Kanye West, Heidi Montag and Britney Spears, among many others, to pretend they can!

In addition to correcting inaccuracies, auto-tuning vocoders can also be used to amusingly distort a human voice if pitch is dramatically raised or lowered.

Using this technology, you can turn anything into a good song. That said, below is a video detailing the year that was: synched up and perfectly in tune!

Here's Spencer Pratt, Octomom, Lady Gaga, Balloon Boy, Jon Gosselin, Sully the airline pilot, Kanye himself and even the U.S. President recapping 2009 ...

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at The Hollywood Gossip!

What would this traditional holiday be without family, food, football and reflection upon the things we appreciate most in life - in the case of THG, that means some of the turkeys we had the privilege of covering this year.

With that said, we present our Top 10 Turkeys of 2009 ...

10. Kanye West and Richard Heene (tie). Perhaps it's unfair to include him by virtue of one incident, but Kanye's hijacking of Taylor Swift's VMA speech was an all-timer. He's almost as full of hot air as Richard Heene's invention.

9. The Kardashians. Pregnancies. Breakups. Marriages. Reality shows. Twitter accounts. Blogs. So many Kardashians, so few ways to escape them.

8. Miley Cyrus. Whether she's grinding on stripper poles, angering Asians, making up her own controversies or deleting her Twitter, the teen can be a bad influence.

7. Tila Tequila. A late entry to the list thanks to her ustream rant. There's no PR stunt she won't stoop to, or article of clothing she won't remove, to get attention. 

6. Spencer Pratt. 2008's top turkey staged two weddings, caused an epic fiasco on I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here, pimped his own wife to Playboy and pretended to get a vasectomy on The Hills. For him, a relatively tame year.

Sorry, Spencer Pratt. You're only our sixth biggest turkey this year.

5. Sarah Palin and Levi Johnston (tie). One's a possible 2012 presidential candidate, the other the 19-year-old unwed father of her grandson. Both have gone rogue (one baring all in Playgirl, the other in a book by that name). Neither shuts up.

4. Perez Hilton. Talk about a fowl human being. With every ounce of fame the celeb gossip magnate garners, the more his own celebrity goes to his head and the more damage he does to his own causes. That will.i.am fight won't be the last.

3. Dr. Conrad Murray. Worst. Doctor. Ever.

2. Carrie Prejean. The dethroned Miss California became a phenomenon after voicing her opposition to gay marriage. She went on to become a self-serving, hypocritical, lying solo sex tape star who throws hissy fits on Larry King.

1. Jon Gosselin. No explanation required. When you're talking about turkeys, there's the Ed Hardy-wearing d-bag and there's everyone else playing for second.

Grade A Douchebag

The biggest turkey of the year, ladies and gentlemen. Need we say more?

There are plenty of good fathers out there, and we laud their efforts. But unfortunately, some of the poorest ones have been dominating news cycles of late.

None garners headlines quite like Jon Gosselin. In the last six months, the Jon and Kate Plus 8 dad has gone through a ultimate midlife crisis like no other.

Before you just hand the Ed Hardy-wearing, mediocre skirt-chasing d-bag the title of Worst Father Ever, however, consider some of his recent competition.

There's Richard Heene, a.k.a. Balloon Boy's dad, who exploited his six-year-old, local law enforcement and the National Guard. All for his reality TV dream.

Then there's Michael Lohan, who's done time, failed to pay child support, and whose eldest train wreck is unlikely to survive too long the way she's going.

Who's the worst of the worst? There may be no right answer to that, but we leave it up to you to come as close as we can. Vote in the survey below!

Lohan Patriarch

Who's the worst dad?
