“A lot of people work really really hard for their dreams but it's not for everybody,” judge Demi Lovato said. “That's why you use autotune and I don't,” Shawn said to Demi.
The young star was mocked for using the voice enhancer technology. Demi Lovato has been criticised for using Auto-Tune technology on The X Factor USA.
Despite the pair's close friendship Demi did admit that rumours about Simon's vanity and grooming habits are definitely true. "Definitely! He wears his sunglasses indoors. It's funny, it's a part of who he is," Demi revealed.
Autotune is considered bad as it can make vocals sound unnatural. As it uses software algorithms to reduce natural human pitch variations, it can suppress emotions in a vocal. Autotune also adds the temptation to settle for a subpar vocal performance, and rely on it to correct pitch post-recording.
The singer spoke candidly on her use (or lack thereof) of autotune, letting the world know that while she may play around with the equipment, her performances are all-natural. Beyoncé has never let the critics get to her, but does point out at times that she has worked hard to get where she is.
But just incase you don't: Auto-Tune is a pitch correction software plugin that can be used to alter and manipulate the pitch of audio as desired. Thus, if a singer sings a little flat, Auto-Tune can be used to tune it sharper and thus tune it back to pitch. Now comes the standard response: “What! That's cheating!
The show's schedule conflicts with Lovato's plans to spend the next year completely focused on her music, a source close to the singer told People early on Wednesday. Lovato, who has been recurring on Fox's Glee this season, is set to begin her Neon Lights tour to support her latest album, Demi, on Feb. 9 in Vancouver.
And a top comment said “I've been WAITING for Demi to join the movement.” As mentioned earlier – Lovato and Spears are not strangers. At the time: Britney was 30 and Demi had just turned 20, but age didn't seem to matter – the two became fast friends.
She definitely doesn't use auto-tune when singing live, and that's clear from every appearance and video she's made. Grande has trained for years at her craft, and was even on Broadway in the first cast of 13.
Britney Spears' Toxic was released in 2003 and became one of the singer's biggest hits. As with pretty much all major pop songs, some auto-tune was applied to her voice before the record was released. But now the original version – before auto-tune was added – has found its way to our grateful ears.
But you gotta admit Demi is very versatile vocally for her age. The range of genres she's able to sing and pull off so convincingly and the way she's able to change her notes and key on a whim in her live performances show she has a versatile technique many vocalists her age have not.
Lovato has been on Idol previously, appearing with Joe Jonas on season 9 and in 2014.

Autotune allows singers to achieve perfection by prioritizing the feel of a track and touching up any minor pitch imperfections with autotune. When it comes to this aspect of the production process, many singers are transparent about their use of autotune and accept it as a normal part of the production process.
Rihanna is the dominant singer of our era, in no small part because the Barbados grain of her voice interacts well with Auto-Tune's nasal tinge, making for a sort of fire-and-ice combination.
The 28-year-old singer says people never got to hear her original voice, reported Contactmusic. "Since The Fame, The Fame Monster and Born This Way, they've been auto-tuning it more, or changing the timbre.
