Yes, it's back... already! The X Factor UK 2013 auditions start soon and here's all you need to know about applying.
While the judges won't be confirmed for some months yet, producers will be kicking off the search for the latest batch of singers early in the new year.
As always, you must be sixteen years of age or over by the 15th of February, 2013
Groups and soloists are once again welcome to apply and beyond the age limit, there's little other conditions.
Any singer from any background can try out, by either applying online and uploading a video or in person at an open audition day.
The X Factor 2013 open audition dates will be confirmed in due course, for now you can apply online and register your interest over at... application.xfactor.tv.
Have your video (of you singing, obviously) ready!
Meanwhile, the reserve list to be in the audience for the show is already open.
Head over to Applause Store now to sign up to be told about tickets.
However rumour has it that bosses are thinking about axing the big arena auditions this year in favour of the old style hotel room try outs.
We'll be sure to keep you updated...
