i would fully expect to discover that everything girls aloud had ever recorded had been put through an Auto-tune, or something similar. their empty expressionless eyes and blank faces don't sing to me that they have too much awareness about the world, and therefore i find it impossible that they would even notice if they were out of tune. they remind me of dustin hoffman playing rain man.
cheryl cole's speaking voice is pretty damn aggravating too, perhaps they should try the Auto-tune on her voice.
(don't let gordon brown's singing influence your vote on thursday.)
