Applications for The X Factor 2012 are now open - with open auditions taking place next month! As always with Britain's biggest musical talent search, any type of singer can apply - regardless of whether you think you could be the next Cheryl Cole, Katy Perry, Eminem or even Susan Boyle!
Applications can be made online via the Freemantle media website, with the age limit this year remaining at 16, meaning you must be 16 by the date of your audition. Those aged between 16 and 18 will also need the permission of their parents or legal guardians.
Call-backs for the auditions will start in late spring, with those who make it successfully through the pre-audition stages being invited to audition for the judges in front of a live audience in the summer.
