Got the X Factor? Auditions come to Aberystwyth next week

By Cambrian News reporter in Entertainment

DO you think you have what it takes to become the next Olly Murs or Leona Lewis?

The X Factor will be holding auditions in Aberystwyth on Monday as part of their UK tour to find the best talent for this year’s show.

Groups or solo singers aged 16+ can apply by registering online or by just turning up to Aberystwyth Arts Centre on Monday between 12pm and 5.30pm.

So if you think you could be the next Matt Terry, Louisa Johnson, One Direction or Little Mix, or know someone who you think could be, now is the time to come along and showcase your vocal talent.

Presenter Dermot O’Leary said: “2016 was a fantastic year for The X Factor and now we’re about to kick-start the auditions for 2017!

"We found some incredible talent and some amazing voices last year and now it could be your turn. Just one audition could change your life so if you think you’ve got what it takes then why don’t you apply?”

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

All 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.
