is again in the middle of hot water after it was revealed that his show "" has used Auto-Tune to enhance the voice quality of singers. Talkback Thames which co-produces the show with Syco has admitted to the use of the technology so that auditions will sound better.

In an e-mail directed to Deadline, the production house said, "In line with standard television practice, sound filtering technology has been used on 'Britain's Got Talent' on our pre-recorded shows, but this does not unfairly reflect any singer's performance. The performance shown on screen is a fair reflection of performance given in the live theater." They added, "Judges make their decision based on that live performance."

The words about using Auto-Tune were disputed by the producers of the show who claimed Cowell, and hear the performers' raw version while audience at home receive the enhanced version.

"Britain's Got Talent" wrapped up the fourth series earlier this year with the victory of gymnastic troupe Spellbound. In its four series history, there was only one singer who eventually won the competition, pop opera tenor from the first series. However, Talkback Thames won't confirm whether Auto-Tune was also applied to Potts and the show's most famous graduate .
