Yesterday, SB posted about whether the people behind TV show The X-Factor had used autotune on contestants, thus making the point of the programme roughly zilch. Well we can now confirm that the people at ITV have responded…
In short: Yes, they fucking did.
The evidence can be found in two places; one is to follow this link (or just Google it, pretty much every paper’s covered it) and read how the X Factor has attempted to justify adding autotune to competitors to tweak their voices.
Or you could just watch this – either Gamu Nhengu is autotuned, or Terminator has taken a different form to that which we expected.
Angry. Angry. I am angry.
