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

Here's your first look at The X Factor: The Band tonight as the girls 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.

Acts performed in the intimate setting of Simon's record label office for himself and Nicole as well as a panel of industry experts.

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

This evening the girls are up with the successful ladies 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.

Each girl performs before the judges pick which ones will make it through to the band, going into the live final on Sunday night.


Acts singing tonight include duo The Lewis Sisters and Jess Folley, who previously impressed Simon and Nicole at the first round with an original song.

Fresh from Monday's episode, joining them are Seorsia Leagh, Chiara King, Kellimarie Willis, Virginiia Hampson, Halle Williams, Rosie Bragg, Blessing Nicole, Jennifer Yusef and Luena Martinez.

But who will make the band?

The X Factor: The Band continues tonight at 8:30PM on ITV.

The series continues Friday night with the Boys' arena auditions.

The two groups will then go head to head live in Sunday nights final on ITV, December 15 from 8PM.

Episodes are available to watch online and catch up via the ITV Hub.
