The X Factor: The Band: First look at the boys' arena auditions

Here's your first look at The X Factor: The Band tonight as the boys face the arena auditions.

Earlier this week saw The X Factor: The Band begin with its first auditions in front of judges Simon Cowell and Nicole Scherzinger.

Budding performers went before Simon and Nicole in the intimate setting of Simon's record label office, singing for both the pair and industry experts.

Those that got a yes are through to the arena auditions that continue tonight, as the show sets out to create a brand new girl and boy band.

After the new girl group were formed on Wednesday, this evening the boys are up with the successful guys from the first round taking to the stage in front of Simon, Nicole and guest judge Leona Lewis.

They're joined by singer-songwriter Ella Eyre, producers and songwriters Naughty Boy and Fred Ball, plus a live audience.
