X-factor bosses have admitted to controversially using auto-tune to enhance wannabe hopefuls’ singing voice during the post production stages.
A spokesperson for the show says:
“The judges make their decisions at the auditions stage based on what they hear on the day, live in the arena. The footage and sound is then edited and dubbed into a finished program, to deliver the most entertaining experience possible for viewers. When it gets to the live shows, it will be all live.”
I really don’t get why they done that. Gamu Nhengu is a great singer and gave a stunning performance; there was no need to auto-tune her vocals. But it’s even worse when they use auto-tune on singers that aren’t that good, because that’s cheating and deceiving viewers who spend money on voting for their fave acts.
Sort it out Simon and ditch the damn auto-tune. In the words of Jay-Z ‘Death of auto-tune’.
