Aaaaargh! Autotune alert (but still loved it)!
8 February 2011 | by (Hove, England) – See all my reviews

As ever, I am torn about Glee. While it is perhaps a guilty secret of mine, I am something of a Gleek and don't want to miss an episode, but... the Autotune in this second series seems to have got ever more intrusive.

The cast are mostly respected Broadway professional who know how to sing, yet they Autotune their performances to oblivion. It isn't even subtle.

Saying that, Sweet Transvestite last night just went to show how Amber Riley/Mercedes is far and away the best singer on the show (and not coincidentally, the one cast member who suffers the least from the dreaded Autotune).
