Duffy the "singer"

So, I was watching an episode of Saturday Night Live last night, it's one I Tivo'ed back a month or so ago, and the featured musical guest was a singer named Duffy. I'd heard the name, but knew nothing about her.

So, she came out, and my first thought (being a guy) was that she was rather hot, in an odd sort of way. Then she started singing. My second thought was, Oh, my God, she's one of the worst singers I've ever heard in my life. Seriously, her voice and singing style are like fingernails on a chalkboard. I was cringing after 30 seconds, and literally had to fast forward through it because I couldn't stand to listen to it any longer. I had to check my ears to make sure they weren't bleeding.

Then they mentioned something about her being Grammy nominated and a multiplatinum selling artist. I think that's even scarier. How does someone who's so horrible sell that many albums? I thought maybe it was just that specific song that was so bad it made me want to tear my ears off, but no, she sang another one later, and it was just as bad!
