/ worst performance ever committed to record
I thought the thing about Mrs Miller was that she WAS trying her best, and it was the producers and record label who were taking the piss?
How about Diamond Lights by Hoddle and Waddle or whoever it was :-)
that is so brilliant :)
Quite-she really did not seem to realise that she was a terrible singer. Some one may be along shortly with Florence Foster Jenkins. (I don't have the heart to post any myself-the responsibility of causing some folk to actually wet themselves is too much)
Oops my emphasis was all wrong! Yes, she was trying her best (to a point; I think the penny did drop at one point and she saw the funny side of it and kept it going) but my point was that it was still a deliberate piss-take where the producers AND audience were "in on the joke", so she might not quite fit your criteria.
think you may be right. This though (as threatened) does absolutely fit the bill, to the extent of hiring Carnegie Hall for many years for her annual recital. No less than the aforementioned Foster Jenkins (a New York socialite who really thought she was a credible artist) You have been warned- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIerl7VNkVo
