The X Factor: The Band started tonight on ITV and here's all the auditions for you to watch.

Simon Cowell and Nicole Scherzinger are judges on The X Factor: The Band searching for acts to form groups to be crowned the nation’s new pop sensations.


The pair are joined by a host of music industry stars - including artists Leona Lewis and Ella Eyre as well as super-producer Naughty Boy. The nation’s favourite host Dermot O’Leary also returns to oversee proceedings - and give his legendary hugs to those auditioning.

The X Factor: The Band auditions begin with hopefuls auditioning in Simon’s office at Sony HQ in London where they try out in front of the music mogul, Nicole as well as a panel of advisers who include Naughty Boy - who has worked with stars including Beyonce; multi-platinum selling song-writer Carla Williams and Grammy-winning producers Lil’ Eddie and Fred Ball.

Those who get a yes will go through to the arena auditions later this week.
