X Factor Autotune Gives The Amateurs A Cheryl Cole Moment

by | 23rd, August 2010

HATS off to the X Factor judiciary for getting wannabes ready for a professional career in pop music by showcasing Sony BMG pal Katie Waissel and mutating the amateurs’ voices in the Autotune mangle.

Says one source who watched the show:

“It’s still grossly unfair. While Cheryl Cole gets to lip sync, the likes of Gamu Nhengu have to actually sing all the words in order. It’s just unprofessional. Autotune is a start but until they allow the singers to mime like a pro, I’ll be watching the show with the volume turned off.”

Says a show insider:

“We’ve listened to the viewers and can say that by the time you next see Shirleena Johnson, she’ll have been linked to three Chelsea footballers, punched a toilet attendant and be dry humping a jobbing dancer, possibly Lionel Blair or Kevin Federer.”

You don’t become a national sweetheart overnight – it can take an entire weekend…
