PICTURES! X Factor 2014 judges hit red carpet at Wembley

Here's a look at the X Factor 2014 judges as the hit the red carpet today at auditions in London.

Cheryl Cole, Mel B, Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh are in Wembley this weekend for the second set of this year's auditions.

They were joined by X Factor host Dermot O'Leary and new Xtra Factor presenter Sarah-Jane Crawford outside the SSE Wembley Arena in North London.

Just like last year, budding performers face a tough two-step audition process.

The double audition format previously saw hopefuls sing for the panel in the intimate and personal setting of the judges' rooms.

Now they not only have to perform for the judges once again but this time entertain a screaming crowd of 3,000 fans at the arena try outs.

Those that get three or more yeses will then progress on to the bootcamp stages, which will also take place in Wembley in just one weeks time.

Only a lucky twelve contestants will make it all the way through to the live finals, which begin on ITV in October.

The show starts later this month!
