JLS Defend Using Auto-Tune In Their Music
The boys have told critics that using vocal effects are "a part of music"...
JLShave jumped to the defence of artists who use auto-tune in their music, stating that there is nothing wrong with using the technology.
The X Factor band who used vocal effects on their No.1 hit single, The Club Is Alive, have hit back at critics claiming that despite using auto-tune, they can still sing the track live.
Jack the Lad Swing member Aston Merrygold told Bang Showbiz: "If you get critics come and see the show, we can sing it live, so what's the problem? It's kind of pointless for them to criticise."
His bandmate Ortise Williams agreed, explaining that their sound is contributing to a "new school generation" of pop music.
Williams said: "Music has moved forward in such an amazing way, and we are in a new school generation and [for] that generation, stuff like music effects, auto tune and sampling is part of that."
Marvin Humes added that they will continue to use vocal effects and auto-tune in their music, insisting: "It's all about people wanting that in the music, so we will deliver it to them."
The She Makes Me Wanna band also hit the headlines over the weekend for cancelling their performance at T4 On The Beach due to "production problems."
