Here's a throwback to some of the very best worst auditions on The X Factor.

The hit singing talent show first made its debut on TV more than 15 years ago in 2004.


Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne were judges for the very first series.

Take a trip down memory lane with some of the funniest auditions from the early days of The X Factor below.

Throwbacks will be the only way to enjoy The X Factor this year with no series planned for 2020.

It's the first time in more than 15 years without a version of the hit singing show.

Simon Cowell revealed earlier this year: "I thought, since it is 2020, a new decade, we have to rest it for a year.

“We have to come back with a show that is relevant, different, a show that takes into account all the different things kids are watching and being influenced by."

Simon also shared news on two programmes he was working on, teasing: “As well as the evolution of The X Factor, I’ve got two new talent shows we’re launching in the next 12 months.


“One in particular I do think is our best one yet.”

For now, you can catch Simon on X Factor's sister show Britain's Got Talent which is airing Saturday nights on ITV.
