Anyway - apologies to GenericRoy - X Factor admits to using autotune on singers' voices.
He's even got Theo doing his bidding now.
As it goes, the only surprise for me is that people are shocked... autotune's pretty common these days, and it'd make sense from their point of view to use it where they can.

- foster a love between the viewer and particular contestants to create a sort of cross between Stockholm Syndrome and Soap Opera such that you see more of a story unfold in a vague rags to riches style.
Autotune surely doesn't change any of what XFactor's really about?
