The actors can sing (for the most part), and they're singing live, which is the beauty of it - it's raw and real. If you're expecting autotuned pop perfection, you'll be disappointed - it's not a happy plot, it shouldn't sound happy, and it's about normal human beings, so it shouldn't perfect either. If you go in with an open mind and don't expect perfection, on the other hand...
I thought Russell Crowe's singing voice was dreadful. Compare it to Hugh Jackman who has experience of singing on stage and this is even more noticable.
