X Factor auditions coming to Bolton

The Bolton News: The Market Place to host auditions for this year's X Factor The Market Place to host auditions for this year's X Factor

X FACTOR hopefuls can audition for the next series of the show this month – right here in Bolton.

The Market Place shopping centre is down as one of 34 mobile audition dates where producers for the ITV1 show will be scouring the country to find the next Leona Lewis, James Arthur or One Direction.

Singers from around the borough will have the chance to impress with their show-stopping vocals before being put through to meet Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole - who was recently announced as returning as a judge - at the televised auditions.

Mobile auditions will be on a first come, first served basis so there is no guarantee of getting a slot, so those who would like to have a go are advised to get there early.

Cheryl Cole said: “If you do something original or a good remix or something that makes people sit up and listen, that’s always a good start.

"So go and do some research, find some unique ways of singing songs we’re already aware of.”

Simon Cowell added: “The last time I was on the show we discovered One Direction, Cher Lloyd and Rebecca Ferguson.

"This year we’re visiting more towns and cities than ever across the UK to find the next pop star ready to take on the world. So if you’re thinking about auditioning, just do it.”

The Market Place’s mobile audition will take place on Monday, April 28.

They could hold the full audition rounds in the Market Place as god knows there is more than enough room to fit them all in due to the lack of shopping punters. More excitement when my grans colostomy bag ruptured!

Show stopping indeed! And I mean NOT in a Beyoncé, Shirley Bassey, Adele or any other 'top notch note belter' fashion.

God give us strength, well not me personally, as I don't watch drab reality crap TV. The sooner the X-Fixtor has it's lid nailed firmly down and laid to rest, the better.

Ordinary everyday folk with talent or who are led to believe they have having a shot at instant stardom is entertainment to me and I for one will be encouraging any one to have a bash.
