I do that, that's the reason why I assume he might do it too. There are plenty of people who can hit low note while speaking but fail to hit it when they try to sing ( same story whih high note), because they are less "natural" when they sing ( mental block, self esteem issue thinking they can't sing that low or that high etc.) whereas when they speak, they don't even think about it.
If your larynx isn't structured in a way that allows you to hit F♯2s, attempting to speak the pitch isn't going to help you hit it.
Sorry but this is simply wrong. There are countless examples of singers who struggle to reach pitches which they with ease hit when speaking. It's all about how you approach the note.
Of course there is a bottom to your voice, but the point is that you might need to use a certain technique to reach it. Just like you might need to scream to hit notes that you can't reach simply by singing.
This is true, but this wasn't my point either. My point was specifically about the bottom of peoples' voices which you acknowledge exist.
Fair enough, but that's not what he said. He said it was a way of reaching a note you couldn't hit otherwise, basically "a note you couldn't hit using your normal singing style". I think that's what he meant.

Exactly. We can't assume everyone uses good technique
Edit: but guys, are you really denying that even trained singers can go higher when screaming than when singing in a controlled manner? I mean there's a reason the highest note in most threads used to be in italics. I know it's off topic but I think it's an interesting topic nonetheless.
So, i keep it in the main OP with the italics, are we all ok?
Actually the F♯2 is in the studio version too but it's a really shitty and barely existent note, that in the live performance from the Late Late Show is really better but still not so good, so, if someone think that is a spoiler note i'm ok with that.
