That's fine, just run her vocals through autotune at the live shows too!

Funny you should mention that, looking back on the Spice Girls, they seem to have so much more personality than an equivalent girl group now...I mean, they actually had distinct voices and personalities, for a start! It's rare to find a boy/girl band like that that isn't just a leader and some backing singers. Manufactured they might have been, but it seems like standards are slipping even in that most overtly commercial of genres!
