X-Factor is heading to Liverpool, will next Top Vocalist be you?

DID you know that Dermot O'Leary is returning as host and room auditions also make a comeback, so Apply Now!  Register online for 1 of the last audition days, just turn up at 1 of our audition days or send in your own video audition via:- Application.X-Factor.TV

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 length and breadth of the country on the 2016 audition tour.

The tour will be visiting Liverpool, on Saturday, 14 May 2016, with auditions at Liverpool Convention Centre, Kings Dock Street, L3 4FP, at 9am.

The news comes as Dermot O'Leary has announced his return as host and it has also been confirmed that the room auditions will return for this year's series.  This is part of the nationwide audition tour, which is visiting over 40 towns and cities across the country. Groups or solo singers aged 16+ can apply by registering online or by just turning up.

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 come along and showcase your vocal talent.  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."

For anyone not able to make the dates in Liverpool, there are other easy ways to apply:-

► Registering online for 1 of the other Open Audition Cities or by just turning up at 1 of the Open Audition Cities on the day.

► Heading to the Mobile Audition Tour which will be visiting smaller towns and cities across the country. There is no need to register for the Mobile Audition dates; full details see online.

► For anyone who isn't able to make it to any of the auditions you can also send in your own video audition via our website.

Acts are advised to turn up early to the Open Auditions and Mobile Auditions. On the Mobile Audition Tour auditions are on a 1st come, 1st served basis, so be sure to turn up early to grab a slot. On the larger scale Open Audition Tour everyone who turns up will be guaranteed an audition.

All any budding hopefuls need to do is turn up on the date and time specified. If they impress The X-Factor team with their vocals they will then be in with a chance of auditioning in front of The X-Factor judges when the judges' auditions take place in summer.

The hit show has uncovered some outstanding talent across the years. To date, One Direction have sold 70 million records worldwide, Olly Murs has achieved success with four multi-platinum albums and 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 online.
