London: Veteran theater composer Andrew Lloyd Webber says he is horrified by badly performed music.

The 64-year-old music writer, who has been searching for a new star of `Jesus Christ Superstar`, said he was hampered in auditions because he had to struggle to listen to out-of-tune singers, reported Daily Express.

"Unfortunately, I have perfect pitch - It`s either one of the greatest advantages or the greatest affliction in life. When people sing out of tune, I just can`t listen," he said.
