What happens when you isolate the microphone of a famous singer’s performance so you can only hear their voice?

That’s the question posed and answered in a new YouTube video, which strips away the backing music, sound effects and auto-tune to reveal just how talented some musicians are (or not).

So, we get to hear the likes of Ariana Grande and Beyoncé completely slay, while others like Taylor Swift and Britney Spears…. Well, maybe it’s better if you check it out yourself.

The video comes courtesy of user gretchen, who has compiled a selection of the best isolated vocals from various singers.

In each clip, all the sound apart from the singer’s actual mic feed is removed from the video, and the results are eye-opening.

Although, we still can’t get over Adele.
