Could you be the next Aston Merrygold and prove Peterborough’s still got the X Factor?
The UK’s favourite singing show, The X Factor, is back and on the lookout for the next big breakout music stars as they travel the country on the 2016 audition tour and they’re stopping off in the city.
The tour will be visiting Queensgate shopping centre on Wednesday March 9 with auditions held from 9am- 5.30pm. It’s part of the Mobile Audition Tour, which is visiting over 40 towns and cities across the country. Groups or solo singers aged 16+ can apply by just turning up.
The Peterborough audition is part of a UK wide tour where the team will be searching high and low bringing the auditions directly to you in the hunt for singing sensations. So if you think you could be the next Louisa Johnson, One Direction, Little Mix, Ella Henderson or Olly Murs, or you know someone you think could be, now is the time to head along and showcase your vocal talent.
For anyone not able to make the date in Peterborough, there are other ways to apply:
- Visiting another of the Mobile Audition Tour dates, which will be visiting smaller towns and cities across the country. There’s no need to register for the Mobile Audition dates – see below for details for full details.
- Registering online (https://application.xfactor.tv/) for one of the Open Audition cities or by just turning up at one of the Open Audition cities on the day. Dates to be announced shortly
- For anyone who isn’t able to make it to any of the cities you can also send in your own video audition via our website https://application.xfactor.tv/ .
Simon Cowell says, “We’re Excited to start auditions again this year for X Factor. If you think you have got what it takes then why don’t you apply. And remember, one audition could change your life”.
Acts are advised to turn up early as the Mobile Audition Tour auditions are on a first come, first served basis, so be sure to turn up early to grab a slot.
All you need to do is turn up on the date and time specified. If you impress The X Factor team with your vocals, you’ll then be in with a chance of auditioning in front of the X Factor judges, when the judges’ auditions take place in the summer.
The hit show has uncovered some outstanding talent across the years including our very own Aston Merrygold and JLS. To date, One Direction have sold 55 million records worldwide, Olly Murs has achieved success with four multi-platinum albums and to date, ESP’s current cover stars Little Mix have sold 3.3 million albums globally. Last year’s winner Louisa Johnson is currently working on her debut album.
The X Factor will return to ITV later this year alongside sister show, The Xtra Factor on ITV 2. Fans of the show can follow all the action via @TheXFactor on Twitter and Instagram and on Facebook.com/TheXFactor
