The X Factor 2013
Audition two: Saturday 7 September
Abi Alton sings for the judges
The nation’s most talked about entertainment show is back for a momentous 10th series, with a number of changes celebrating the best of The X Factor including brand new double auditions and the welcome return of a familiar face – Mrs Sharon Osbourne to the judging panel. 
Sharon joins Take That superstar Gary Barlow, US pop sensation Nicole Scherzinger and Svengali manager Louis Walsh in the search for the nation’s next big singing sensation and award-winning presenter Dermot O’Leary is back to front the show.
And in the first of an exciting range of new changes for the 10th series, hopefuls will - for the first time ever - have to tackle two sets of auditions.  To win over the nation, they first have to face our four feisty judges eyeball to eyeball in an intimate audition room.
If they succeed in impressing one-on-one they then secure a spot on stage at the second audition where they will confront an audience of 4,000 at Wembley Arena. Here they will have to perform once more to prove they can also impress an audience before securing a coveted place at Boot camp.
With all this and more to come, viewers can expect an abundance of fun, laughter, tears, mischief and madness as the search for the nation’s next singing sensation gets underway.
