X Factor Auditions Auto-tuned?

Filed under: 2010 Contestants

X Factor is back, and the controversy is starting early this year! Thousands of fans are complaining on twitter that the producers are using auto-tune, a tool to make singing sound in key even when it’s not, on certain ‘favoured’ auditions.

In particular, the accusations are being made 18 year old Gamu Nhengu’s performance was digitally altered in post-production to make her sound better to the viewers at home than she really did. Gamu sang Walking On Sunshine at the Glasgow auditions, and made it through to the next round with great comments from the judges.

It is suggested that similar work was done to the audition of group G and S. The group also made it through to the next round.

The show’s producers replied to the criticism, saying:

“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 programme, to deliver the most entertaining experience possible for viewers.

“When it gets to the live shows, it will be all live.”
