The thing is, if he talks and pronounces everything correct he should be able to sing and pronounce correct.
He just needs to try pronounce correct somehow, that is the solution instead of ignoring pronunciation, vocal cords have almost nothing to do with pronunciation except making the sound itself (Say AAAAA and you hear it) and the pitch.

He barely moved on stage due to lack of confidence 2013-2017. Due to lack of confidence he never did any sort of actual improvisations with vocals or so, not even really rasp in voice, etc at all. When he's very confident and/or happy he could/can do all of these in a single concert (Australia 2010. Sydney. Happy Now, STBI and SIBSN are good examples from that concert.)

In Sao Paulo, etc he regained confidence and started pronouncing words better due to that, etc.
He needs to fully regain confidence in order to pronounce words better.
I Agree but I still think it's deeper and much more complicated. One kind of effects the other. Jon sings better, he performs better... Jon performs better, he sings better...

I agree, and we didn't talk about his laziness...

I have noticed Jon uses the same growl Richie uses on for example Wanted, Stranger, etc.
It's made with the false cords which are above the actual vocal cords for sound. The false cords can only do rasp, growling, distortion, etc no matter how it sounds, high pitched growl for example.
Making rasp, etc with the actual vocal cords can be very bad for your voice and doing rasp, etc with actual vocal cords often makes your voice sound constricted, bad or so.

Jon uses the same growl Richie often does on for example LYHOM verses in original version.
Jon often doesn't make the growl too "loud" or distinctive though but Richie does.
2:09 and onwards.

He uses it for example on studio IML too but it's higher pitched.

I would call what he does on HAND as rasp, too high to really know/hear.
