Uncle Kracker - Follow Me - The whole vocal sounds strained, but especially the word "goodbye."
Maroon 5 - She Will Be Loved - Listen for "rain" and "smile."
Natasha Bedingfield - Love Like This - "Apart" and "life."
Sean Kingston - Beautiful girls - "OoooOver" doesn't sound human.
JoJo - Too Little Too Late - Appropriately, "problem" stands out.
Rascal Flatts - Life is a Highway - Every vocal, foreground and background, is treated, but "drive" in particular.
New Found Glory - Hit or Miss - "Thriller", and every time Jordan sings "I."

I don't know why NFG's singer even bothers with autotune.

Or why he even bothers with singing, for that matter.

McP3000, it takes what you sing and if you are off pitch it will basically put you on pitch but more often than not (just like the examples) you'll sound like a robot.

Colors wasn't that badly autotuned.

Oh, hello Dallas Green, where are you on this list (even though you don't strictly play pop)?

Wow I used to think that was some vocal effect to make kids like the sound of the human voice better... or something.

Well I was sort of getting at the fact that although he may sing in tune, his voice is so painfully nasally that he has no business singing.

Anything recently released by Britney Spears also contains offensively blatant use of auto tune. However, I agree with the list completely. Once you know what auto tune sounds like, it will haunt you forever.

This is stupid. Everyone uses it now, no use pointing out certain cases. T-Pain and Kingston is pretty intentional, I don't think they're trying to hide anything.

Seems so bizarre to pick some of these, and then not pick Cher.
