Rumors say that American Idol bosses decided to auto-tune the songs from the show.
On the other hand, the show’s bosses denied these rumors.
“We have never, nor would we ever, use auto-tuning during the American Idol competition,” producers said.
“American Idol viewers can attest that contestants have been regularly scolded for ‘pitchiness’,” the statement added.
Nevertheless, bosses revealed that they indeed use auto-tune in post-production but only after fans complained about it.
