The X Factor 2012 auditions take place in Manchester today, and anyone is welcome to come along and try out!
Thousands of budding performers are expected to turn up to the Manchester United football stadium in the city centre in a bid to make it all the way through to the live shows in October.
One Direction star Zayn Malik, who kicked off his journey to stardom in the city two years ago, wrote on Twitter this week: "This time 2 years ago I was auditioning for the @thexfactor in Manchester.. I can't believe all this has happened since!"
If you want to follow in his footsteps then just turn up this morning and have a go, just be sure you're over 16 and have proof of ID.
Those lucky enough to make through to the first round will be called back for a second audition tomorrow, before facing the judges in the summer if you're successful.
The X Factor 2012 auditions continue over the next month in Glasgow, Wales and London.
