X Factor host Dermot O'Leary says he hopes to see some Welsh talent in the final of this year's series.
"Wales always gives us brilliant people - they're always up for it!" he told our reporter Megan Boot.
Auditions have been taking place today at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
Our reporter Megan Boot has been at the X Factor auditions in Cardiff this morning meeting some of the hopefuls.
Hopefuls trying their luck will perform in front of producers and if they impress they'll sing for the judges later in the competition.
Returning host Dermot O'Leary who is in Cardiff for the auditions, said: "As always I'm looking forward to the laughs, the hugs, maybe not so much the tears, and watching really talented people... and some not-so-talented people.
"But that's the beauty of the show - you never know who's up next."
