It's just two weeks and one day until The X Factor 2011 returns to our screens and with the countdown in full swing, ITV1 are preparing to release their first advert which has debuted on the internet today! Read on to watch the first X Factor 2011 promo...
Although it does not show any audition footage, 'O Fortuna' is in use as we see all 4 judges walking forward onto an X forming the x of a new look The X Factor logo.
Described as 'The NeXt Generation' in the ad, the new look panel - consisting of Louis Walsh, Gary Barlow Kelly Rowland and Tulisa Contostavlos - look stunning as they make their telly debut as X Factor judges!
The stars will hit screens on August 20 when the UK's biggest reality show returns, with auditions once again touring the country - including their first in Liverpool - uncovering superb hidden talent across all ages. From 16-year-olds who could give Adele a run for her money to 56-year-old grannies who received standing ovations, The X Factor is back.
Kelly Rowland said: "I can't wait to meet the world’s next superstar!" while Louis Walsh exclaimed: "I'm determined to find an act that can win this year and show the others how it's done!"
And fiesty N-Dubz star Tulisa couldn't wait to get stuck in, she added: "Let the fireworks begin!"
The promo will air on ITV1 from tomorrow.
If you're interested in seeing some actual audition footage then it won't be long to wait as if this year is the same as previous years, there will be a short promotional clip at the end of Xtra Factor Rewind which airs on ITV2 next Saturday.
