The first promo for The X Factor 2012 auditions has aired, featuring a first look at some of this year's wannabes.

The one minute spot premiered in last night's X Factor Rewind and introduced Gary Barlow, Tulisa, Louis Walsh and new judge Nicole Scherzinger.

The advert shows the panel being rather harsh with this year's contestants, as Tulisa tells one bluntly: "You can't sing!"

Louis Walsh tells another wannabe: "I honestly think it's one of the worst auditions we've ever had."

Coming from the only judge to have been on the panel since the beginning, a rather big claim to make!

Meanwhile Gary Barlow blasts another singer: "You have just committed a crime against music."

The ad also previews some of this year's more wacky auditionees, including a stripping Britney Spears impersonator!

It all kicks off on August 18 on ITV1.
