X Factor producers have admitted using autotune software to improve contestants vocals on the show.
Viewers had complained one hopeful on Saturday night’s programme Gamu Nhengu had clearly had her vocals enhanced.
She was given a unanimous thumbs up by the four judges after singing Walking On Sunshine.
A statement from X Factor bosses to the BBC said: “The judges make their decisions at the auditions stage based on what they hear on the day, live in the arena.”
“The footage and sound is then edited and dubbed into a finished programme, to deliver the most entertaining experience possible for viewers.
“When it gets to the live shows, it will be all live.”
