Here's the thing about autotune: before rappers treated it like an old baseball card to clip to their bicycle spokes, it was used to "level" the voices of R&B singers who really had no business making money from singing anyway. That said, hearing someone like Kelly, who's musical direction had already taken some very puzzling twists, and who can also sing his braids off, using autotune is like having Kobe say he wants a bulls eye painted on every hoop he shoots on. When keeping it "trill" goes wrong? Hardly, but as dirty as people think Kels already is, opening the gate like this might be exactly what he needs to get back in with his 12 Play fanbase. Also, this reeks of one Mr. Nash. Not complaining. Just saying.
