The Arena Auditions are coming this weekend!

Yes this weekend sees the start of the Arena Auditions, not only do the contestants have to face the Judges they need to summon the confidence to perform in front of thousands of people. Eek!

Will Blonde Electric run out of energy? Can Ten Senah turn up on time (without partying the night before) and more importantly do you reckon Stevi Ritchie will remember his words?

And for those boys that the Judges thought would melt the girls hearts like Jack Walton, Charlie Martinez and The Brooks - how will they cope with screaming girls?

All will be revealed this Saturday and Sunday at 8pm on ITV.

Wow! What a start to the show

Now that's what we call a start to the show! The Judges were on form for the return of your favourite show and the Room Auditions, and so were some of their comments.
On Saturday's show we had Blonde Electric screaming for England (and Germany and whichever other countries' language they can speak in!), Reece Bibby wowing the judges with his performance, Charlie Jones making us blush with his version of One Direction's Little Things and Chloe O'Gorman and Lauren Platt proving the girls are off to a good start!

Official press launch of The X Factor

Tonight saw the official launch to the press of The X Factor 2014. Amidst a fan frenzy outside, the judges (all except Mel B who was in America) made their way inside London's Ham Yard Hotel for a special screening of the show.
