The sun was out for the latest round of open X Factor auditions 2013 in Wales, as these snaps show.
Thousands turned up for the try outs in the city centre, with host Dermot O'Leary on hand to oversee proceedings of the first audition stage of the show.
He joked with the wannabes: “If you’re great you’ll win and if you’re bad… you’ll probably do alright as well.”
Some of the hopefuls had travelled from across the UK and Ireland for the try outs, but will any of them make it through? We’ll have to wait until summer to find out!
If you want to audition for The X Factor 2013 but didn't make today's try outs in Cardiff you needn't worry too much yet, as once again the auditions will be touring across the UK over the next month and into May.
Auditions for the tenth series will move on to Manchester and Glasgow after today's stop in Wales.
