The X Factor auditions open on Facebook®
The country’s number one entertainment show, The X Factor has opened auditions on Facebook for this year’s series.
Even though the ITV1 show’s open auditions tour of six major cities has been completed, the auditions on Facebook still allow people to apply until 8th May 2012.
Potential singers and groups simply need to record a video and upload it via the Audition tab on the show’s Facebook Page. Stand out acts will be asked to audition in person, and could go on to audition in front of The X Factor Judges.
Richard Holloway, Managing Director, Thames, and Executive Producer for The X Factor says: “We want to cast our net as wide as possible to find the best talent the country has to offer and allowing people to enter via Facebook ensures we reach a whole new audience.”
Also, in an exciting first for the series, people can enter The X Factor whether they are an amateur artist, have had a management deal in the past or have one now. Applicants must be aged 16 or over.
