X Factor has been known as a reality series featuring live performances ... until now.
The hit FOX show is admitting that some of the performers do get vocal assistance from pre-recorded tracks.
In a statement, FOX says:
- "All survival songs are performed live, with just a backing track. For the group ensemble performance, the vocals are prerecorded to allow acts to concentrate on preparing for their own live competitive performances on Wednesdaysâ€”this is also no different to what other competition shows do for ensemble performances."
The controversy surfaced after viewers noticed a group number, as well as contestant LeRoy Bell, were lip-syncing during several X Factor performances. Yikes!
