Do you think you have what it takes to become the next Matt Cardle, Alexandra Burke or Leona Lewis? Don't fear if you didn't manage to submit a paper application by the February 11 deadline, for open auditions kick off across the country from next month to find another X Factor star!
As with the paper applications, you must be at least 16 years of age at the time of your audition. Those aged between 16 and 18 will also need the permission of their parents or legal guardians.
To audition simply prepare a couple of good tracks to perform a cappella for the show's producers and turn up to one of the following locations at 9AM:
- March 6th and 7th: London, O2
- March 9th: Glasgow SECC
- March 12th: Liverpool Echo
- March 20th: Birmingham NEC
- March 26th: Manchester Old Trafford Stadium
- April 9th: Cardiff City Stadium
Be prepared for a long wait and a long day! You'll also take part in filming the many crowd shots that will eventually end up on this series' audition shows.
