Potential singers and groups simply need to record a video and upload it via the Audition tab on the show’s Facebook Page. Stand out acts will be asked to audition in person, and could go on to audition in front of The X Factor Judges.

X Factor boss Richard Holloway declares: “We want to cast our net as wide as possible to find the best talent the country has to offer and allowing people to enter via Facebook ensures we reach a whole new audience.”

As reported previously, it has been confirmed today that The X Factor 2012 will be open to amateur artists and professionals alike, with acts that have had a management deal in the past or have one now able to apply.

As with the open auditions, you must be 16 or over and be eligible to live and work in the UK.
