The season is only one episode in and already it has MAJOR drama!!!!
The heels of the autotune controversy, X Factor bosses are debating losing one of their star contestants after they've learned that she already has a recording contract in the US. Apparently, contestant Katie Waissel never told producers about her two-record deal on a jazz label state side.
We think that's grounds for the axe! Fair is fair!
While fans wait to see Katie's fate, news came straight from Simon Cowell that "performance-enhancing software" (aka autotune) will now be banned from all edited pre-recorded auditions. Obviously, Simon is trying to preserve the show's reputation so that it has a more seamless transition in 2011 to the USA.
And we agree! Say no to autotune! These people are singing for their futures! Let their talent stand on its own!
