(Only to a trainee ventriloquist.)
when people sing they change their accents because certain notes are easier to sing in a certain way. Like ahhh is easier to sing than ooo because your mouth is opened wider... so even if you have an american accent your accent is changes when you sing also because it's easier to sing that way... and not get pitchy...

I think it's rather hard to differentiate between American English and British English when one is singing. I personally can't tell the difference though I know there're loads of British singers.
Anonymous every country has lots! peoblem solved!
I beg to differ. Australia has only one accent with only VERY slight variations. There's not more than one Australian accent. And on the subject of Australian accents, WHY do americans find it so difficult to differentiate between an Australian and English accent? It baffles me. Maybe because I used to have an Australian accent, but it just seems weird. And annoying. I was asked if I was English all the time by Americans.
The reason that we, Americans, can not hear the difference between an English accent and an Australian accent is because we are from the US! It is that simple... And just as recent post stated, you probably would't hear the difference between an accent from Northern California, Southern California and Oregon.

Also, it is really silly for anyone to get affended by differences in language because the way that I see it is... IT IS AMAZING AND BEAUTIFUL and just goes to show the evolution of languages, cultures and community as well as the complexity of humans and life in general... (GOD is awesome)

It is not only Americans who have the problem but also Scots and those from the North of England. The fact is that a London accent and an Australian accent have more in common with each other than either has in common with any American, Scots or Northern English accent. When an accent is close to one's own it is easy to pick up the differences. Since I come from quite near London, I have no problem in picking out Australians. It is all a question of what one is used to. There was a time when I could not distinguish a Tyneside accent from a Wearside accent, but having spent a while in Sunderland the difference is now quite clear to me. I expect that for you it is no problem telling when someone is from New Zealand, but for the rest of the world Australians and New Zealanders sound the same.

So please don't get annoyed. Emotion: smile
In the same way that I (and many others) cannot tell the difference between American and Canadian accents. I know it drives the Canadians bonkers! It is obvious when you are local to that part of the world but difficult for others. I also cannot tell the difference between Australian and New Zealand accents. Again, it's probably totally obvious to locals but to others, the similarities are more striking than any differences.

I think we (Americans) are intrigued by the history of other countries because our own is fairly short. And as for British history, it may be that many Americans are of British descent.
