Kanye is a genius producer.  Genius.  But he is a genius producer who is dillusional.  He can't sing, and this video is proof.  His auto-tune was obviously messed and you get a glimpse of whats really going on in the first minute or so of this performance.  At first I thought it had to be a skit, it was actually the first thing that made me laugh on SNL since the Beyonce/JT appearance or the Sara Palin skits. But sadly, it wasn't. What's even more sad is I happened to be on Twitter while this performance was live on SNL  and I lost count of the number of people saying Kanye's performance was "amazing", "awesome" and even "incredible". 

The screens behind him gave a cool visual, and whoever made the video and artwork did a pretty amazing job, but that still doesn't make Kanye a better singer.   Maybe the shades help?  Nope.  How about the crazy dancing all over the stage?  Nope.  Still terrible. 

I've said it before and I'll say it again.  Kanye is a genius producer.  He just needs to realize he can't sing and either hire someone who can or learn take lessons.

Think I'm crazy?  Try this.  Close your eyes, and listen to the audio.  Don't look at the video, and forget it's Kanye just for a minute.   Am I still crazy?

You gotta respect the man's passion for the music. He definitely puts everything he's got into his performances he just needs to stop singing or get better at it.
