Now is it just me or are they using auto tune on these auditions?
#4
All of the ones who got through seem to have been auto tuned, this is insane!

Funnily enough I was just about to make a thread about this!

Dear god, that just takes the piss. I have said for years that there isn't any real talent involved in the competition, but using a live autotune unit just makes unbearably awful singers even worse!
Although... The girl who forgot the lyrics to queen was smokin' hot!

The nadir was when the duo known as G + S came on stage.

Neither could sing for shit, but because she had autotune on - she got put through. New low, Mr Cowell.

Rather light-hearted compared to what some people have been saying on Twitter:

Use of Auto-Tune in 'The X Factor'

I noticed in the show tonight that a pitch corrector was used on the vocals of some of the acts. Surely this defeats the point of a 'talent show'? While some of the vocal tuning was more subtle (used for the female's voice in the group 'G&S'), the Auto-Tune on some acts was rather blatent!

Was just wondering why the decision was taken to make this part of the show, as surely there was a fair bit of planning involved, for example, in the hiring of an operator if applicable.

Thanks,
Eddie *****.

I'm sure they'll be reeling.
Those who have crossed
With direct eyes, to death's other Kingdom
Remember us - if at all - not as lost
Violent souls, but only
As the hollow men
The stuffed men.

They might take you more seriously if you spelt "blatant" correctly.

Ah yes, maybe they would.

That's an unfortunate surname you have there.

Seems kinda stupid to me to use a pitch corrector at a talent show, but I guess if the point is to produce a complete package and Autotune is a tool at their disposal, then it almost doesn't make sense to disallow it in the audition phase.

I dunno, it definitely makes the show less entertaining.

Perhaps they would've taken me more seriously if my surname was more common :/

I notice the autotune aswell. I think it is rather stupid to use pitch correction on a talent show.

A tool which masks someones lack of ability shouldn't be used in a talent show at any stage IMO. Might as well be lip syncing.
Anything unrelated to elephants is irrelephant.

It's like last year when Brian May and Roger Taylor came on and played Bohemian Rhapsody. They played their parts live while the contestants were miming to pre-recorded, autotuned to hell vocals.

Very telling that two old rockstars came on and showed them how it's done... all live.

I don't watch X Factor, so..

It does seem incredibly stupid though, but that can be explained because:
1) ITV
2) ITV
3) Money

ITV is a channel that has produced 0 quality programmes per year, follows whatever trends are out there and purposely creates programmes that are as accessible and popular as they can be, with a direct and massive sacrifice in quality.

That's brilliant.

Unfortunately, to the average listener it sounds like all the contestants are singing their parts perfectly. Especially check out 2:20 and 3:15.

This actually calls for a complaint.

Theres stuff which gets complained about which is utter nonsense, btu this genuinely is a load of ****. What's the point?
