The X Factor auditions are coming to Norwich
Talented singers hoping for their big break will have the chance to audition for The X Factor in Norwich next month as the show heads to the city.
Norfolk has already shown it is a hotbed of talent this year, with a number of rising stars from the county featuring on the TV shows Britain's Got Talent and The Voice, and now people will have the opportunity to take to the X Factor stage in Norwich.
This year the ITV1 superstar search is taking a mobile audition van to towns and cities that The X Factor arena auditions tour does not reach - and the van will visit Norwich on Wednesday, May 9. Details of timings and where the van will stop in Norwich are still to be announced.
Take That star Gary Barlow, who will return to The X Factor judging panel this year, said: 'We want to make sure we find all the talent the country has to offer and the extra auditions allow even more people to try out.'
People must be 16 or over to audition, and this year people can enter whether they are an amateur artist, have had a management deal in the past, or have one now. Acts can also apply via Facebook until May 8 at www.facebook.com/TheXFactor
Among Norfolk's rising stars currently in the TV talent show limelight are Spixworth singer Sam Kelly who is waiting to find out whether he has made it through to the live finals of ITV1's Britain's Got Talent and Gorleston mum Toni Warne who has made it through to the live rounds of the BBC show The Voice.
