I'm Robyn!  :hithere:
It's funny you thought she meant Robyn as in the singer, that's the first thing Katy said to me when I told her my name haha!
I'm not sure who I think sounds like Katy, her voice is really distinctive and I think it's quite easy to tell her apart from other artists. Sometimes when I'm in work and the radio's being obscured by all the people in the shop I can get mixed up between Katy and Jessie J.

I loved this one video posted here so much, I had to see a few more right away, and subscribed to your channel. What you do is fantastic and the best way of doing any Katy cover I've ever heard and seen! If I was female I guess you'd become my role model in terms of singing Katy, in fact though it works the opposite way for me, with each new song of hers I need a few days or so to find my own voice, style and interpretation (like with everything). Your look and sound alike stuff is amazing though, wow, keep doing this!

Wow! THANKYOU very much! I'm so thrilled that I'm getting such an amazing response from the katycats, I know we all know exactly how Katy sounds and for that reason I thought everyone would be so much more critical haha but all I've had are positive responses and I'm so grateful! So thank you again and I love the fact that you made the effort to elaborate and give me some awesome critique  :dudeparty: :dudeparty: :dudeparty: :dudeparty: :dudeparty: :dudeparty: :pinkbow:

Ugh wrong quote, but you know.

Haha, you're welcome, btw I love your humor, too, your finishing gaze into the camera with It Takes Two, and some other things, hahaha    :frolickingghost: ... Opened my YouTube app tonight, and your clips come up on the list of my recommended videos now! And no, I don't think you'll get negative comments, not even on YouTube from what I've seen, and that's unusual, haha

I don't listen to much Paramore, but when I first heard Still Into You, Hayley Williams' voice reminded me of Katy's. I asked my mum and she didn't see it, so not sure if it's just me :P

At least Paramore still has their rock sound. Some Katycats wish Katy kept hers.

Depending on the vowels and notes in places, I could say, some comes a bit closer to Katy Perry, Marina and the Diamonds, Jessie J? But very conscious listening is needed, it is t very close.

Haha, some wish Katy had done this, had done that, had stayed in the church choir and sang gospels; I'm happy with whatever she does!

Actually I want Katy to be a versatile and diverse artist. And she's done that with Prism. :)

For those of you in the UK: Does Cheryl Cole have a voice similar to Katy?  She's not marketed here in the US, so I don't really know what she sounds like.

I wouldn't say she does at all, no.

But many people say Katy and Jessie J have similar voices and I also don't agree with that at all. Sorry to any fans but I think Jessie often has a horribly harsh, screechy voice (especially when belting) and sounds like she is trying to make a joke with the horrible noises she makes but it turns out she's actually being serious. Yes, technically she is good at singing in tune, but to me it's the actual sound of her voice that is often unbearable. And she does that horrible Christina Aguilera thing where she does so much unnecessary oversinging and tries way too hard to show off her range in every performance she does, it's like 'we get it you can hit big notes. Now sing properly'.

Katy is not like that at all.


this is called a signature. doesn't seem to do much but I think it secretly has a superpower it uses when I'm not looking. just a feeling.

I feel a bit different about Jessie J., finding a distinct clarity in her voice, and liking the fact she sounds very individual. As far as the screechy voice and so on is concerned, there are plenty of people who say all that about Katy. And I find that neither of them is like that, haha ... btw, I do live in the UK and still haven't got a clue what Cheryl Cole sounds like, probably I've never heard her-? But then I've got friends who haven't got a clue who Katy Perry is, everybody lives in their own little world.

I don't really think people say those particular things about Katy's voice, if people say Katy screeches I honestly have no idea what they're talking about. http://youtu.be/j2WWrupMBAE I've never heard Katy make the noise Jessie does at 0:59. I'd probably like this song if it wasn't for the (imo) horrible noises she makes and generally just being a bit overdramatic with her voice... kind of shouting a lot.
