Default petition to stop using autotune as trendy affect

i thought it would start and stop with that stupid cher song.
this trend finally killed me when it defined michael jackson's latest single.
now, shakira, mario, avril off the top of my head are making their vocal chords sound like a robot. [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

anyone with me here?

(I apologize about the rant, but i needed to get it out)

I think that N´sync and here in Brazil very awful new singers (can they really sing) and stupid remixes...

Miss Giorgio Moroder´s "from here to Eternity" and/or Imagination´s "just an illusion"

I saw MTV movie awards the other day, and Kelly Osbourne performed live (papa don't preach), the auto tune was going crazy! it was really annoying. More and more people are using it live! and I don't think it's for an effect, they just can't sing!!. Also more and more bands are using sequenced stuff in their live shows, like harmonies and double vocals... people don't have to knowh how to sing or play and instrument anymore to make it.

I think that they should pass a law that either :

A: states that audiences should be told in advance that parts or all of the show will be using taped and/or autotuned vocals.

B: Forbids these tools live period. It's cheating. If they'll allow it in music, then they shouldn't forbid steroids in Sports.

Reverb should be banned in studios with small rooms...it's cheating.

Quantizing should be outlawed, too.

It corrects out-of-time performances. (Let's call it "AutoTime.")

Again, cheating.
