JLS have insisted that there is nothing wrong with using technology in music.
The 'Beat Again'
singers, whose 2010 track 'The Club Is Alive' featured heavy use of vocal effects, said that they shouldn't be criticised because they can still sing their music live.Aston Merrygold
told Bang Showbiz
: "If you get critics come and see the show, we can sing it live, so what's the problem? It's kind of pointless for them to criticise."
Bandmate Oritsé Williams explained that their sound is part of a "new school generation" of pop.
Williams commented: "Music has moved forward in such an amazing way, and we are in a new school generation and [for] that generation, stuff like music effects, auto tune and sampling is part of that."
JLS have insisted that they will continue to use vocal effects because their fans like them.
Marvin Humes added: "It's all about people wanting that in the music, so we will deliver it to them."
JLS recently pulled out of their set at T4 On The Beach
over production problems.
