X Factor auditions: Apply for The X Factor's next series

How to audition for The X Factor next series - Series 17

You can apply NOW for The X Factor's next series on ITV.

Although The X Factor isn't currently due to air in 2020, applications for the next season (Series 17) are now open.

X Factor host Dermot O'Leary previously kicked off the call for talented singers to audition for the new series.

"Did you know that popstars discovered by The X Factor have had 40 Number 1s? So if you see yourself at the top of the charts, apply now for the only show that creates worldwide stars," he said.

Once again you can register to audition either in person at one of a number of cities in the UK or audition online by simply uploading a video.

The age limit is 16 but you can still apply if you're currently a little younger, so long as you'll be sixteen years of age or over by the 25 June 2021.

Note, those under 18 must have their parent's/guardian's permission to apply.

As always, solo singers, groups and duos can all audition and as long as you're old enough there aren't really any other restrictions. Past series have seen a huge range of singing talent, including choirs and drag acts.

So if you think you've got what it takes you can apply right this second on the ITV website HERE.

If you're not too sure yet, or want time to record a video, don't panic as there's still AGES to go yet until applications close.

The deadline for online X Factor applications is currently 23.59 on 25 June 2021.

Those who impress will be invited to sing for the judges in front of the cameras in the future with details to be confirmed.
