X Factor 2010: Cheryl Cole Will Use Auto-Tune To Preserve Song’s ‘Purity’

ON the X Factor Cheryl Cole will most likely use auto-tune to warble her new song Promise This. Last year she lip-synced.

Why? Well, as she says:

Unless you’re recording a live, unplugged studio or concert album, then every artist has to use auto-tuning, they have done for years and years. All it does really is tidy everything up, and make it perfect. Otherwise, the smallest of sounds or imperfections – if you breathe too deeply or too loudly, for instance – comes up and ruins the purity of the track.

It’s vital, especially for artists who dance vigorously when they sing – you need to hear the voice clearly during an elaborate dance move, not someone wheezing!
