No audio engineer would let a song like that out of a studio if Auto-Tune was just being used for pitch conrrection.
Well the big "revealing factor" here is that Autotune GK can be done in hardware, live.Originally posted by: DangerAardvark
Feh, you'd have to be seriously tone deaf to not get a decent sounding take in a day of studio time. Or hell, they could chop up a day's worth of takes and piece them together. This type of music is so repetitive you'd never know the difference. They can make anyone sound good in the studio.
So, the effect probably serves both purposes. Masks pitch issues and gives it a distinctive style.

Singing nowadays is overrated.
Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole, Bobby Vinton now those are great singers.
