The X Factor 2012 auditions to hit Manchester this weekend – could you be the next Zayn Malik?
The X Factor team are due to hit Manchester this weekend.
Auditions will be carried out in the Manchester United football stadium by producers and researchers for the ITV show and the cream of the crop will be selected and called back to perform for the celebrity judges later in the year.
Insiders are hoping to find the new Zayn Malik at the tryouts and the One Direction singer rememvgered that it all started for him in the city, two years ago.
He has went on to conquer the world with his boyband, but it wouldn’t have happened if he hadn’t shown up to audition back in 2010 and he tweeted this week:
“This time 2 years ago I was auditioning for the @thexfactor in Manchester.. I can’t believe all this has happened since!”
The official X Factor twitter account replied:
“Could YOU follow in @ZaynMalik’s footsteps at the Manchester auditions this Saturday? ”
“See? One day changed @ZaynMalik’s life… YOU still have time to audition for this year’s #XFactor: ”
Today’s auditions are open to anyone and you don’t have to have previously applied or filled in a form for the show.
Second round callbacks will happen tomorrow, in the same venue.
The audition team will travel to Cardiff City Stadium next weekend, Glasgow SECC the week after and conclude in London’s O2 in April.
