Audition 6
 
The search for a music superstar continues as The X Factor returns to ITV.
 
The nation’s most talked about entertainment show sees Sharon Osbourne, Nicole Scherzinger and Louis Walsh reunited with music mogul Simon Cowell on the judging panel. 
 
They are joined by Mr Saturday Night himself, Dermot O’Leary, who will be on hand to guide viewers and contestants alike through their X Factor journey, providing them with a word of advice or a much needed hug as the contestants perform in front of the judging panel.
 
This series has held auditions across the UK, taking place in Liverpool, Edinburgh, London and Manchester, and in a first for the show, Thorpe Park, where even the judges experienced a ride or two of their own. Once again hopefuls are tackling two audition rounds, starting with the intimate closed rooms, in which they find themselves eyeball-to-eyeball in front of the judges. Should they impress and secure three or more ‘yeses’, they're given the chance to progress to bootcamp to see if they have what it takes for international stardom. 
 
This series will also see the return of the Six Chair Challenge culminating in the live shows which will air later this year on the channel. Expect outstanding vocals and sensational performances, as the judges and contestants go all out in a bid to be crowned The X Factor Champion 2017, securing a life changing record contract.
