ITV admits to X Factor vocal tweaks

X Factor bosses have admitted using vocal enhancement processes on the ITV talent show.

Fans had claimed after the opening show that "autotuning" had been used to improve some contestants' voices.

It is used in recording studios to improve performances by correcting pitch and disguising off-key mistakes.
