Will you just look at the mess that T-Pain and his synthesizer has started. Autotune has infiltrated Britain’s Got Talent.
Susan Boyle’s performance of “I Dreamed A Dream” on the UK talent show that saw her become a worldwide phenomenon was auto-tuned, an insider has said.
A BGT production team member tells UK newspaper The Evening Standard that Boyle’s performance, which attracted 47 million views on YouTube, was digitally altered to make it sound better. Similar British-based reality series X-Factor — which also happens to be produced by Simon Cowell — has come under fire in the past week over allegations it used software to tweak singers’ performances.
“The exact same techniques are used on Britain’s Got Talent as on The X-Factor — it’s the same production team,” the insider squeals. “This goes for everyone — even Susan Boyle’s audition was smoothed out in post-production to give it the best possible sound.”
