The X Factor 2017 auditions are on their way with try outs starting at the end of the month.

Yes, last year's show only finished weeks ago but you can (almost) already try out for this year's series.


And as as The X Factor returns on the search for the nation’s top vocal talent, you can take a trip down memory lane with this homage to The Beatles’ Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover featuring the very first auditions of some of the most memorable acts of the last 13 years.

The X Factor will return to ITV later this year and the show's team is ready to hit the road on a nationwide tour in search of the next big breakout music stars to join this ever growing hall of fame.


So if you think you can be the next Matt Terry, Louisa Johnson, One Direction, Little Mix, Ella Henderson or Olly Murs, or you know someone you think could be, now is the time to showcase your vocal talent.

The mobile auditions tour will be visiting a number of cities across the UK starting from January 29th. Details of the open auditions are to follow but anyone interested should keep an eye out on for updates

All any budding hopefuls need to do is turn up on the date and time specified. If they impress The X Factor team with their vocals, they will then be in with a chance of auditioning in front of the X Factor judges, when the judges’ auditions take place in the summer.
