X Factor 2013 auditions: Nominate your friends to go before the judges

The XFactor 2013 UK

The X Factor 2013 auditions are set to see a new twist that will see you able to nominate your talented pals to go before the judges.

Apparently in a bid to "find undiscovered talent", bosses want you to put forward you singing friends and family who may not be confident enough to audition themselves.

Or perhaps they're just waiting for the next series of The Voice...

A source explained: "It’s a new twist to freshen up the show.

“We are asking friends to nominate their pals who they believe are good enough to take part in the show but for some reason have never applied."

They added to the Daily Star: “It’s a fun new way to spring surprises and find singers.”

In reality though the twist isn't new, and is basically the Britain's Got Talent Star Scouts thing with a new name.

A spokesperson for The X Factor commented: “It’s a new way of finding undiscovered talent.”

The usual X Factor open auditions will start next month, although you can already apply online now at xfactor.itv.com.
