X Factor 2015 auditions: How to impress Simon Cowell, by Simon Cowell

Simon Cowell (X Factor 2014)

Simon Cowell has issued his top tips for those heading for the X Factor auditions 2015.

Try outs for the upcoming series are now well underway with open auditions taking place across the country.

Today (April 23) and tomorrow will see hopefuls able to try their luck in Glasgow before the audition tour moves on to Liverpool at the weekend.

And Simon has appeared in a video clip on Good Morning Britain to reveal just how best to win him over.

"My tips for the auditions are, be original and be different. A good example of this is Cher Lloyd's first audition," he declared.

The multi-millionaire music mogul continued: "You've got to have personality, you've have got to perform in front of an audience - a really good example of this is Olly Murs' first audition."

Simon added: "Stage presence. One of my favourite X Factor auditions was Danyl Johnson, that is one of those auditions I'll never forget."

So if you think of yourself as some sort of Cher Lloyd-Olly Murs-Danyl Johnson hybrid then it sounds like you could definitely be on your way to getting a yes from Simon this year.
