who was voted off of x factor results 1st december 2013 itv tv channel goes down

who was voted off of x factor results 1st december 2013 itv tv channel goes down, yes those technical difficulties?.

tv is fine until it comes to the result show, and you want to see who gets voted off on sunday night, then blank screen, the x factor goes off the air, itv have said they are sorry for the technical difficulties.

so it was tamera foster who got voted off of the recent x factor results show on sunday night.

it was luke friend and tamera foster who was in the bottom 2 this week, after the sing off tamera foster was sent home by the judges, which many people missed because the tv screen went blank and there was no channel 3, until the show had finished.

lots of other people experienced these gremlins in the itv network when trying to watch the following program i am a celebrity get me out of here 2013.

many people wasted time messing around with there tv sets thinking the fault was at there end, but it was a technical difficulty at the itv end.

x factor 2013 finalists tamera foster sam bailey luke friend nicholas mcdonald and rough copy

x factor 2013 finalists tamera foster, sam bailey, luke friend, nicholas mcdonald and rough copy, that is the final five so far, then down to four, after tonight, so that would make the semi final next saturday, and the final the week after on the 15th of december.

who out of these five will make the top 3?, i cannot pick it this year, i think the 2 women might be favorite to get into the final possible.



tamera foster



sam bailey



luke friend



nicholas mcdonald




rough copy


when is the date for x factor 2013 final in december

x factor 2013 final date, first what will be happening on the 15th of december when the x factor final takes place, well, one of the fun parts is where previous auditions who stood out for being funny usually do a sing along, not sure if they are doing that this year.

but for all you wagner, rylan, 2 shoes, kitty brucknell and others are rumored to be doing a group performance when the final takes place on the 15th of december, which would make a really good sing along!.

so it will be interesting to see who does the sing along this year.

will there be a x factor usa 2014 auditions?

will there be a x factor usa 2014 auditions?, this is currently the hot topic regarding the future of the x factor, i am actually positive that the usa show will go on for more years yet, and it seems at times to be gradually regaining some popularity.

it is really too soon for fox to close the x factor usa, because it could start out slow like it has but given time start to be a favorite with the american tv viewiers.

Been very good so far this year going to be good in the final this year as well

Been very good so far this year going to be good in the final this year as well, just watch this video below to see that it has been good again, i think they have brought back some of the old style, which is what has been missing in recent years, gets more of a atmosphere to the show, which is what music is all about, without that things don't seem as good, like the ratings dropped for a while, because they changed the old format too much.

favourite aspects of the x factor 2013 uk and usa so far

the best and favourite aspects of the x factor 2013 so far, well of course nicole scherzinger, she is a definite keeper for the uk x factor each year, what has been the usa x factor's loss really, that they let nicole scherzinger go, a few seasons ago, has been the uk x factor's gain the last 2 years.

sharon osbourne's return to the uk x factor has also been a really good boost as well, has simon cowell got the x factor usa popular, he might of done it, but it is difficult to tell, but all in all i think the 2013 season has been a improvement on the x factor 2012 seasons which had got bad reviews.

is there going to be auditions for x factor 2014 or is this the last year of the show?

seems each year this question or similar arise, is there going to be auditions for x factor 2014 or is this the last year of the show?.

well probably not, it looks like the x factor still has more years in it, despite the rumors each year, which that is what they are each year, pretty much just rumors, because for the last few years it has been the same rumors each year on whether the x factor is on its last season.

and it still returns each year for another year, so i would think the same for a x factor 2014 and that there will be auditions next year.

the only sign that there will not be auditions for say the x factor usa next year is if the show gets very poor viewing figures this year.

but they would have to be really really low viewing figures for the x factor 2013 this year on fox tv, other then that i would think all the different x factor's will be back in 2014 as usual.

the x factor 2013 auditions the story so far

the x factor 2013 auditions the story so far, looks like the uk x factor auditions is going to get back to its old style this year, with some old themes returning, and also a few of acts that did not make it in previous years as well.

so one thing to look out for this year is some of the contestants from previous x factor's returning to give it another go, there is always a few acts that should have made it through to the live finals, but do not make it because at the final judging the judges are subjective and the places to the finals very limited.

so who is returning to the x factor auditions this year?, well one act who has done it all before, 3 times in fact, look for a return of irish singer melanie mccabe, she has been to the boot camp in 2008 and 2012, and did her best when she made it to the judges houses in 2011, so melanie mccabe will be hoping for fourth time lucky and getting through this year, though that is down to the judges as usual.

another returner this year is terry winstanley who has been to the judges houses level of the x factor back in 2011, and i can remember only just missed out on making it to the live finals of the x factor 2 years ago.

there has been quite a few returning this year to give there x factor auditions another try, so it just make the uk version a bit more interesting this year, as well with the change in the judging panel and the return of sharon osbourne the x factor should be a bit like it used to be, which is what long time x factor fans have been looking for to make the show more interesting.

x factor 2013 auditions - extra date added for groups to try out this month

x factor 2013 auditions - extra date added for groups to try out this month, it is too late for soloists to apply and try out for x factor, but not for groups to try out because a extra audition date has been added to the schedule just for groups to audition.

this is going to be a special open audition day just for groups, and is the last of its kind of auditions this year for the x factor 2013, as the other open auditions are now all completed, to note this is just a special day added only for groups to audition.

the x factor producers have added this extra audition date for groups because it is seen as one of the struggling categories on the x factor, and it is always difficult for the x factor judges to find good groups, so much so they sometimes make there own groups out of people from other categories on the x factor boot camp section each year.

so this year the x factor has decided to give the groups section a extra chance of auditioning to see if they can beef up the groups category with more potential quality bands this year.

so if you are in a group and want to audition with your group you can at the address and date below.

on tuesday the 21st of may 2013 x factor special groups auditions at:

The Fountain Studios In Wembley

lets have a look back at how the audition process went this year, starting out with the first auditions at the excel in london.

audition guide for x factor 2014 tips and ideas how to apply next year

here is a bit of a guide to try and make the audition process for x factor 2014 as easy as possible, some tips and ideas on what the judges will be looking for, because of course this is the whole process, and trying to fit there mold of what they are looking for is important when auditioning.

you are basically looking to improve on what you already have and your talents, so just think of your practice as honing your skills, and adding the finishing touches to what you have, as to improve your chances of getting through the various audition stages.

so if you want to be a singer and you have good potential, you still need to practice before hand to get your audition songs like second nature to you, there are many who audition for the x factor who are brilliant singers with lots of potential, yet, they do not get through because they fluff there lines etc.

so one of the most important parts of preparing for your x factor 2014 audition is to have practiced the audition songs you are going to use so that they no problem for you, and you will not have to worry about forgetting the words then.

this kind of attention to detail also, follows on to improve your confidence, because if you do not have to worry that you might forget your lines, then you have a lot more confidence available to you, and that doubt is alleviated out of your consciousness, which in turn makes your singing much more relaxed as a result.

so this is all about having your preparation done in advance, before you audition before the judges, to make the audition easier all round, you will have practiced all your songs until they are very natural to you, then if this is done, you can be confident for your audition.

so the next part is to choose and prepare in advance how you will present yourself when you go to audition, so this is about, what you will wear and how you will look for your actual audition, so these are the 2 main things to have sorted out before auditioning, the songs practiced, and your appearance refined, as to appear, clean presentable before the judges when you audition.

no matter what fashion trends we might like ourselves, the judges are biased, and the auditions that do the best are people who appear clean and presentable on there audition, without too much wild style, the judges on the x factor whether it be the x factor uk or the x factor usa, really do favor the auditionee's who appear the most presentable, they are biased are the x factor judges.

this also goes back to your song choices, because the judges are looking for someone who is relevant and up to date, you know the words they say when the auditions happen, like he or she is relevant, and so you should have at least some relevant modern style chart songs in your list of chosen songs that you have practiced.

because you want to be as relevant as you can, if you are to impress the judges this is the sort of things they look for, its not always what you think is hip that is important, but trying to tailor your style to what the judges are going to think is hip, they are the ones you are looking to impress, so it is important to keep this in mind when choosing what you are going to sing, and also how you will appear with the clothes and make up you choose to wear to your audition.

the sort of things the judges look for on the x factor are, that you are confident, they know you will be nervous so do not worry about that, but they look to see that you have some confidence, they also make a thing about peoples attitudes as well when they audition like, he or she has a nice attitude.

they do not just judge you on your singing abilities either, but the whole package you present, so they will be looking at that sometimes as much as how well you sing, it is no good being a amazing singer, yet not getting through, because the judges did not like your presentation.

one option is to look back through old videos of successful x factor auditions, to see what it was that made them good, what was the whole package that they presented from singing to there overall presentation, to see what makes the judges tick.

yes the judges look for individuality as well, but, you have not got to be so individual that they think you are not then marketable, so you need to some individuality but as well, to be relevant, and in tune with current trends.

because the x factor judges aim if you are successful in the contest is to be able to market you onto a global market, so they will be working out what your niche will be and will they be able to fit you into one of the current niches or popular trends in music.

this is why it is important to not be too much individual, because the judges will say well, i do not think he or she fits in, or i don't know what we can do with them.

it is like when people sell houses in a way, you use neutral colours, and do not have the house so individual that anyone who looks at it, thinks i cannot see myself living in that house, it is not my style.

likewise, when you audition, if you are smartly dressed and neutral the judges, will think well we could put them here or put them there, they could fit in this particular niche, so the point i am making there is to have your individuality of course, but also blend yourself with some relaxed and smart presentation, like you would for a job interview.

and that is another important point one way you can look at your x factor audition is as of a job interview, because in a way that is what it is, and you know how it is important to go to a job interview dressed casual and smart, now i am not saying to go audition for the x factor in a shirt and tie, but that go in your smart but casual clothes though is the way to go.

so these are just some ideas, on the basics of auditioning, you need your songs to be well practiced, so that remembering the words of the songs you will sing on your audition is no problem for you, and you need to go to your audition smart casual to some degree as to project a clean image, and try to have in your audition and songs, that are something like current music and fashion trends as to be relevant for the judges.

the x factor auditions callbacks 2013 what happens?

the x factor auditions callbacks 2013 what happens?, this is a look at the stages following the first stage auditions, if you are lucky enough to get a call back from the x factor to go to another audition.

if you went through the first stage auditions, then you might have been told you now will wait for a "callback" to audition again, so in these now second auditions which are the callbacks process, you again audition but before the producers of the x factor, at this stage you do not audition before the judges, but before the x factor producers.

these x factor callbacks are still a preliminary phase of the x factor auditions, to try and get through to the main part which is of course before the judges, but first it is getting over these hurdles or stages, with all the first and second stage auditions that the x factor auditions you each time, in your attempt at qualifying for a spot to stand before the judges, so not a easy process as such, with having to get through a few levels before a tv audition before the actual x factor judges.

so if you have been through the first stage auditions, and now you get a producers callback, like a email etc, then you go audition again before the x factor producers, and this second stage audition if you are successful is what will qualify you for a spot to audition before the x factor judges in the tv style auditions.

so in a way it looks like this roughly 3 stages of auditioning with the x factor:

first stage auditions
second stage auditions (callbacks) before producers
third stage auditions before the x factor judges

open mic uk 2013 auditions another talent show option to try?

open mic uk 2013 auditions another talent show option to try?, though i think the open mic contest is a bit different to the x factor and is a bit more flexible to who auditions from bands and rock style singers, they are looking for the best singers, singer/songwriters, rappers and vocalists, so it does not matter if you are into either these kinds of music like pop, RnB, acoustic or classical, so the open mic singing competition might be worth registering to, and worth checking out there website to see if it is something you would like to apply to.

you basically register by filling in there application form online, then they get back to you with which audition location and the dates they will have you audition at the location.

these are the locations that auditions will take place for open mic 2013, they have not put the dates down, as they tell you that after you have registered via there online application form.

London (Central) - Camden
London (West) - Hayes
Midlands - Bedford (near Milton Keynes/Cambridge)
Midlands - Birmingham
North - Sheffield
North East - Newcastle
North West - Leeds
North West - Liverpool
North West - Manchester
Scotland - Glasgow
South East - Brighton
South West - Bristol
Southern England - Bournemouth
Southern England - Fareham (near Southampton/Portsmouth)

x factor usa 2013 auditions venue locations

x factor usa 2013 auditions venue locations, so 3 auditions left to go in the first open call auditions, and here is the 3 remaining auditions with the venue and location, unlike uk x factor who has kept everything quiet the usa locations have been released since last year, with the auditions locations and dates, it was only the final venues that the usa x factor did not release until closer to the time, which is strange why the uk cannot release audition details much sooner.

no uk auditions locations yet

the uk auditions locations still not out, i keep checking all media each day, so as soon as these are posted online, i will post them up here on this blog as well.

so far there seems to just be bits of information appearing in the form of rumors though, so some possible location changes this year for the x factor 2013 auditions are that there will be no auditions in newcastle, and also there is a rumour that there will be no auditions in liverpool either this year, which has been swapped for plymouth though that is not confirmed yet and is a rumor.

it is also rumored this year that the first stage auditions are getting a big makeover and are going to be changed back to the old style of auditions before the judges in a audition room, instead of the big stadium auditions of the last few years, so kind of going back to basics in a way this year.

the x factor uk closed online application forms on the 15th

the x factor uk closed online application forms on the 15th of march 2013, so it is now too late if you was going to apply by filling out a application form online, that is not it completely though because the x factor also has options of applying through other means each year like the mobile audition booths and things like that.

some audition locations updates for the uk

it is now known that the newcastle auditions will be swapped for auditions in birmingham this year, so that is 2 locations that have been verified just waiting on the rest now, obviously you know there will be auditions in the big cities like london and manchester, and probably cardiff, liverpool and glasgow, but what is verified that if you are in the north east there will be no auditions in newcastle this time around, these have been replaced by birmingham auditions instead.

x factor 2013 auditions usa charleston south carolina

x factor 2013 auditions usa charleston south carolina the second of the open call auditions in the first stage of x factor auditions which the public can try out for.

the dates for these are registration days on the 17th to the 18th of march.

the audition day is on the 19th of march.

you must go to either of the registration days though to be able to audition on the 19th, so the first stage of the usa auditions for x factor are in full swing.

yet what is strange there is no news whatsoever on when and where the uk auditions will be taking place this year, which is strange as the x factor uk always release this information quite early in the year, and never leave it this late to say what the locations and dates will be.

this has prompted rumors that the x factor uk might start later this year to give simon cowell the chance to come back and judge the uk show as well as the usa x factor.

it does fit well seen as they are not saying when the uk auditions will start, that it could be a possibility that simon could judge both shows in some way, and make his rumored return to the uk x factor a reality this year.

los angeles auditions get low attendance figures

los angeles auditions get 10,000 attendance, lower then the 18,000 who attended the season 1 los angeles auditions in 2011, there was no auditions in los angeles last year though, but this year has seen a drop in popularity as nearly half the amount of people attended compared to 2 years ago.

though we hope things like this does not put doubts on whether fox tv decide to renew the x factor in 2014, they are currently taking a year on year approach when issueng each years contract, so next year contract for the x factor 2014 is not gaurenteed yet.

fox will be looking for much better viewing figures when the show start back on usa tv later this year if they are to renew for another year, moe then anything, so it is still early to start worrying on whether the x factor usa might come to a end by 2014 or not.

though we would hope it still has a lot more years in it yet, even if viewing figures have been slow to start with, for the first 2 seasons, possible season 3 of x factor usa which starts later this year will be a lot more popular then the first 2 previous seasons of the show.

no dates for the uk is simon going to judge both shows?

no dates for the uk is simon going to judge both shows?, so there is a strange delay on the details for the uk x factor auditions still not released as we head into the month of march.

usually each year you can expect the details for when and where the uk auditions will be to have been released by january or february, but nothing so far this year, though we do know that the first stage auditions for the x factor usa will be starting in march and where about they will be taking place.

so why the delay with the uk?, and no details at all as to where the locations or the dates will be for the uk auditions this year?, here is a theory, is it because simon cowell is looking to judge both shows this year, the uk and usa x factors?.

the reason this could be possible is if the shows start dates where made to be quite different, and this would give simon a chance to be able to judge both x factor's. so this is a possible reason to the delay of the uk x factor in releasing this year auditions locations and venues.

x factor arabia auditions 2013 UAE Jordan Tunisia Morocco, Egypt, Lebanon and Kuwait

the x factor arabia auditions 2013 locations are the United Arab Emiretes (UAE), Jordan, Tunisia, Morocco, Egypt, Lebanon and Kuwait, so all the people auditioning for this years arabian x factor will come from a vast array of countries.

i think this is quite unique concerning x factor competitions with usually just 1 or at the most 2 countries like a neighbouring country being involved in sharing the auditions for a single competition.

though for the x factor arabia there will be a total of 7 arabic countries involved United Arab Emiretes (UAE), Jordan, Tunisia, Morocco, Egypt, Lebanon and Kuwait, within just one x factor competition, which is kind of unique i think as regards the x factor and the way it works.

this though should bring in some good and varied auditions to this competition and set it apart from some of the other x factor formats out there.

the x factor arabia 2013 auditions videos online to watch

the x factor arabia 2013 auditions videos are now online to watch, here are a few from the first of the auditions of this new series of the x factor for the arab world, if you are not new to watching the x factor then the arabian x factor follows to the x factor format like the uk and usa does.

so below are some new videos from this new series of the x factor arab auditions 2013.

first up is a x factor 2013 arab audition video of Mohamed Jafal

x factor uk auditions 2013 dates and locations still not revealed yet

the x factor uk auditions 2013 dates and locations still have not been announced yet, which is kind of strange because last year the dates were released in january last year, yet we are now approaching march and still no details are released as to when and where the auditions for the uk x factor will be taking place at all.

well i cannot find anything online regarding where the auditions for this year uk x factor will be like the audition dates or the locations and the cities auditions are taking place in this year.

last year the auditions started at the start of march, so if they keep to a similar schedule the auditions would be starting very soon, so i wonder if the auditions this year for the uk x factor will be starting much later like the end of march, usually each year the auditions locations and dates information is released in january and/or early february, so something strange this year that it is taking so long for this information to be finalised and released to the public.

been doing some online searches and also news website searches looking for the details regarding the x factor but they definitely are not available online yet, for some reason the x factor is very slow at releasing this information this year.

x factor germany 2013 auditions start date probably march/april

don't see much about the x factor germany come up in search results, but there has been 3 series so far, it started in 2010 and has run until 2012, with the auditions for x factor germany starting in march/april each year, it should be the same this year for the x factor germany auditions 2013, with a proposed start date of march/april if it follows previous shows.

it has a similar format to the other popular x factor shows, with the same general themes, there are some videos of x factor germany.

because a lot of europeans want to audition to the uk or usa x factor, but first they should also consider/look at auditioning if they have a x factor nearer by, so if someone lives in europe and wants to audition for the x factor, they have not to be perturbed if they cannot make it to the uk x factor, because they might have there own x factor in the country they live in europe.

which would also be a lot easier as well, it is not easy to go to another country to audition, especially of you do not live and or work in that country etc, so the x factor germany will be a excellent option if you live in germany or surrounding european countries.

what it looks like some of the x factor germany videos

the x factor arabia 2013 auditions new judges start date?

look out for the x factor arabia 2013 auditions to be starting sometime soon, there are some promotional videos up on the x factor arabia youtube channel, but no start date, but there is a video with the 4 judges on so the competition must not be too far off from starting if the judges are already chosen.

it is not a new x factor though, because series one of the arabic x factor was back in 2006, with season two following in 2007, then thee was quite a few years break, with the newest season of the x factor arabia being in 2013.

so there is no start date as of yet for the x factor arabia, but it might start sometime in march, which was the start date of the previous runs of the show, but will have to wait and see, on there twitter page it is quoted that the first episode is on the 21st of february 2013, so that might be the start time for this new x factor singing contest.

the judges for the x factor arabia 2013 are named though:

Elissa
Carole Samaha
Wael Kfoury
Hussain Al Jasmi

also look for this newest version of the x factor arabia to be on a different tv channel as it was back in 2006 and 2007, back then it was on LBC, Rotana television, but for this year look for it to be on MBC1 television.

this is a look at the new judges

x factor video auditions 2013 usa for application form online

here is a peruse at some of the x factor video auditions 2013 usa, that are online on youtube these are the videos people have submitted when applying for the x factor usa and when filling in a online application form for the x factor usa 2013 you can also submit a video with your online application as well.

you can also do the same when applying via the websites for the uk x factor and also submit a video with your application form as well, this is optional though, you do not have to do it as a video application because the online application form is all that is needed for applying to the x factor online.

but some people also utilize the option of submitting a digital video of themselves singing, as this might be seen as improving the chances of getting further or havign better chances with auditioning, though i am not sure how it increases the persons potential.

as the application form is so that you can be registered for the competition, though maybe people who also submit the video audition as well, might have the potential of also being contacted by someone from the x factor as well.

but as far as i know, when applying the video part is optional, of course not everyone has a camera or a means of uploading a video submission to the x factor website, and so they cannot do the video application extra even if they wanted to, but all is not lost for them, because you do not have to do a video application, but you do need to fill in the online application form when applying for the x factor online, and all that is needed when filling the online application form for the x factor 2013 is a valid email address, which i am sure everyone has one of those, and if you do not have a email address, they are actually quite is to obtain, you can get free email addresses from websites such as hotmail.

so no one should have any trouble applying to the x factor, also if you do not have internet access, then for example, you can get free internet access at a library and all you have to do is go into the library and fill in some forms to get free internet access using there computers, so with that it is quite easy and possible for pretty much anyone to be able to apply to the x factor 2013.

so these are some of the video auditions people have also added to there online x factor application.

so there are few contests for the x factor already going on at the moment, not really a month in the year where the x factor does not have a contest online somewhere in the world at any time of the year.

this is a highlights video of episode 6

funny x factor auditions old style uk editions

funny x factor auditions old style uk editions, this is how some of the old style audition would be like in the audition "booths" or rooms before the 3 judges, and this is probably the funniest and it also has a "remix" video as well which is even funnier, so well worth watching for some real x factor nostalgia.

so these two jokers was called ant and seb from wales and auditioned for the x factor back in 2008, when the auditions were in side a audition room and not a arena, though not saying that some of the newer format x factor auditions in the arena's are not also good at times as well.



this is the remix video of this audition featuring peter andre

there is going to be no dj x factor auditions or sign up

there is going to be no dj x factor auditions or sign up, if you did not know, simon cowell was planning to launch a x factor competition specifically for dj's (disc jockeys) to enter, the dj x factor competition was probably going to be this year, but the idea now has been scrapped by simon cowell.

it was quite a good idea for using the x factor franchise and format in a very different way, now dj mixing competitions are nothing new, but a dj competition on main stream tv using the backing of the x factor to make it into a really big competition would of been something new, as most dj mixing competition are not something that are on prime time tv.

it was announced back in january last year that simon cowell and x factor would be launching a new TV talent show which aims "to find the world's greatest DJs".

it was going to be a dj mixing show though with a similar format to the X Factor, with the DJs battling it out each week trying to win through the various auditions and then live finals. Speaking about the show, simon cowell was keen to do a show of this style because he could see the popularity of dance music all over the world and that the dj's are like the new rock stars.

which is true because the x factor does not focus on dance music at all, and the x factor is more about chart and pop music, so simon was looking to tap into the dance music and club music scene with this idea, which is kind of a really promising idea, but it was not to be, and the x factor will stay as is.

the show was going to be produced in conjunction with Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett-Smith, but in the end the show was dropped and the two parties of cowell and the smiths went there separate ways.

x factor 2013 application form

x factor 2013 application form, there are a few options when applying for this years x factor.

1/ you can apply by filling in a online application form at the xfactor website.

2/ you can also upload a video audition at the website when filling in the x factor application form (uploading a video is a optional added extra).

3/ you can only apply if you have a valid email address (needed to do the online application form) if for some reason you do not have a email address, there is the option to apply by ringing the x factor hotline number 0901 88 11 222 and applying via a telephone.

so people who do not have access to the internet (though they would not be reading this), though you might be reading for a friend who wants to apply to the x factor, but they do not have internet access, they can use the x factor hotline telephone number instead to apply.

likewise if you have internet access but do not have a valid email address, (which you need a email address to apply via the online application form) then also you can apply by using the telephone number.

though be quick if you want to apply via the telephone application option because lines close on 15th February 2013.

also the age limit for the x factor application form in the uk, is you need to be 16 years or over by the 15th of february when applying.

there is no closing date for online applications posted online as of yet, but with auditions starting probably in march time, you would want to get your applications in as soon as possible, otherwise risk missing the closing dates otherwise, as there is probably not much more longer then around 1 month or so in total left to apply online for the x factor 2013.

improve x factor uk 2013 auditioning process and the live finals

improve x factor uk 2013 auditioning process and the live finals, the show is in a slump and needs to change its format more then anything, like a have a drastic overhaul of the whole methodology of how things are done, especially starting with the x factor auditions.

a "back to basics" type approach, like going back in time to the original format when x factor first started around 10 years ago, the format seemed to be a lot more suitable, and make things more natural, rather then the x factor just becoming a place for agents and professional singer, to appear, to be auditioning, but more for the randomness that the show seemed to be about.

so in the original x factor there was a audition room, rather then now where people audition in front of a big audience in side a arena, this format does not seem to work as well as the original setting of a auditions room.

at first the new changes a few years ago did seem to work, where the audition room was changed for auditions in front of big audiences in arenas, but now it seems to have lost the way of the original show, and its earlier appeal and style.



that would be one of the most important changes, because when they start out big with the auditions there is not really anywhere to go after that, rather start out small with the auditions and work up to the live shows with the arenas.

a change in the judging panel as well would be a good idea, though, this looks like it will happen anyway, with gary, tulisa and nicole looking set to leave the x factor judging panel.

the voice 2013 auditions uk start date on tv in the spring!

the voice 2013 auditions uk start date on tv in the spring!, the new series of the voice will be back on tv very soon, there is no exact start date as of yet though, but it is going to be starting sometime in the spring 2013 on the bbc again.

so to work out when the voice 2013 will be starting back on tv this year, the spring this year it says on the calendar wednesday march the 20th for spring 2013, so i would predict the voice to be starting sometime probably in april this year.

okay, update just checked the voice twitter and the show will start in march this year!, the exact date is not set yet though.

the voice 2013 start date is in march!.

and so far all the judges are confirmed with the same panel as it was last year, also to note some of the new series has already been filmed, and it is in the process of being edited for tv, the first episodes of course are pre-recorded, where the acts are chosen, this is before the voice then switches to the live episodes on the bbc.

but at the moment the first episodes have already been filmed, which will be the start of the series, with a start date of sometime in spring this year.

x factor 2013 auditions australia locations dates venues

x factor 2013 auditions australia locations dates venues, there is still a few dates left to apply to through january, the auditions run up to the end of this month so you will need to be quick to get your last chance to be on the australian x factor just a few days are left.

the last few audition dates for australia are as follows (just 3 auditions are left in total this year):

ON TUESDAY 22 JANUARY 2013
Registration STARTS AT 11:00 - 17:00
x factor australia audition 2013 at:
KALGOORLIE, AT GOLDFIELDS ARTS CENTRE, 34 Cheetham ST, Kalgoolie, WA 6433


ON FRIDAY 25 - SUNDAY 27 JANUARY 2013
Registration STARTS AT 09:00 - 15:30
x factor australia audition 2013 at:
SYDNEY, ALLIANZ STADIUM, SYDNEY CRICKET GROUND, Gate A, Driver Avenue, Moore Park NSW 2021



ON WEDNESDAY 30 JANUARY 2013
Registration STARTS AT 11:00 - 17:00
the last x factor australia audition 2013 at:
NEWCASTLE, HUNTER STADIUM, 294 Turton Road, New Lambton NSW 2305



so those are the last of the open auditions for this years x factor australia this year, so you have to be really really quick to get in there and apply and register for the x factor australia auditions this year, just a few days to go.

it is worth going as well if these last few auditions fall close to where you live it will make it really easy to get there and save on expense, maybe not as easy if you have to travel half way accross the country though, especially without much preparation in advance either.

you need to be ready in advance before you audition for a show like x factor, because you will need to have a few songs ready that you can sing really well, and know the words to fully as well, it does not help a audition if you get there and cannot remember the words for the song you are going to sing.

as well you need a few songs to sing as well, because the judges might want you to sing one of the other choices you have brought instead of your first choice song, this is what it can be like, but usually you will just be required your first choice song that you are most familiar with and practiced the most.

also these are what is called the first stage of auditions and are not before the actual judges you see in the televised auditions, but are actually before the x factor production staff, the televised auditions before the celebrity judges like mel b are in the next round of x factor auditions, and so you have to get through stage 1 auditions to be then accepted or qualify for the stage 2 auditions at a later date before the the audience and tv judges.

so these are just like prelimary auditions, but are one of the last few ways to qualify to get before the real judges later in the year and have the chance to further progress in the competition.

though there will probably be other opportunities to get to stage 2 this year, there is the option of online applications, so applying to the x factor australia 2013 via there facebook page and or there youtube channel as well, via submitting a videos application.

then each year there is also the mobile auditions where the x factor in most countries gives people the chance to audition via mobile audition booths that are hosted in big malls and shopping centres and towns so that people who could not make it to the other options still have a chance, so there are lots of possible ways still remaining this year, if you cannot make to these 3 remaining dates above this month.

classic old school x factor funnies the judges getting in a twist

classic old school x factor funnies the judges getting in a twist, some of the funnies from the past, if you remember back the old format or some of the older x factor shows were the funniest.

actually looking at these old x factor videos, it is completely different show, to how it was a few years back, especially if you compare it to say the uk x factor, these old audition videos are completely different, sometimes you wonder what some of the people are thinking who audition, they are giving it a go, but never going to win, so comedy aside the old format where it was just the judges and a room, seems better to the new format of the big audience and a big stage etc for the auditions.

simon not to return this year to the uk judging panel

simon not to return this year, there were rumours that simon cowell would come back to the uk judging panel, but he has now denied this, and the denials are recent, simon was asked at the auditions for bgt if you he would be returning to the uk judging panel this year, and he shook his head.

so that is one judge who will not be on the uk judging panel, so far only louis looks likely, another other judges for this year are not known, gary has left the judging panel, and it looks like all the other judges will be changed except for louis.

so simon is judging this years bgt, which he said he was not going to be returning to judging again this year, and so, if that was applied to the x factor judging panel maybe, you cannot take it so serious when he says he will not be back this year just yet.

if anything they always say one things and do another, so it could be a ruse saying he will not judge this year, then appear at the last minute as a judge, though of course judging both the uk and usa shows, there was talk that he would change the start dates so he could judge both shows, but that does not look to have happened either

so i would say wait and see closer to the time to see just who is judging the uk x factor, because there are always lots of rumours, but they purposefully keep it all secret until the last minute before the start.

the x factor live tour 2013 lineup uk starting soon this month

the x factor live tour 2013 lineup uk starting soon this month, yeah it is this month don't forget that the live tour for the uk starts, and runs into february, so basically starts 26th jan, up to 23rd feb.

the tour is not as big as it was in previous years as i remember in the past the x factor live tour running for nearly a month with a lot more venues and dates in the tour, so it is a bit of a smaller tour now, so you will have to make sure you do not miss out if you want to go, though saying that just looked on another x factor 2013 tour ticket website and there was more venues showing, so it might not be that much different to previous tours, running for nearly a month long like in the past.

i think tickets are still available for some of the venues online as well, they have been on sale though for quite a while so you would need to check as soon as possible as not to be disappointed and miss out.

the lineup is: Chris Maloney, Ella Henderson, Rylan Clark, Union J, District3, Jahmene Douglas and James Arthur.

those were the real auditions before the judges this year simon cowell has returned as well.

so the judges this year are the same as last year with simon cowell, alesha dixon, amanda holden and david walliams returning for this year.

tomorrow is a one off special open audition at the london oval on the 19th of january, that is not before the judges, but is a first stage audition for anyone to come and audition at.

the list for the judges auditions for people already qualified of where the locations and venue dates are for this year:

britains got talent 2013 auditions At The London Palladium, London 20th to 23rd January

britains got talent 2013 auditions At The Clyde Theatre, Glasgow 28th January

britains got talent 2013 auditions At The Lowry Theatre, Manchester 2nd to 3rd February

britains got talent 2013 auditions At The ICC, Birmingham 8th to 10th February

but there is still chance to audition tomorrow if you have not already qualified to audition at any of the auditions above by going to the open audition day tomorrow on the 19th of january, otherwise the dates above are now the second stage auditions before the judges for people who already got through stage one of the process.

britains got talent 2013 auditions still apply london oval 19th january

britains got talent 2013 auditions still apply london oval 19th january, this is actually a special OPEN audition which means you can just turn up on the day to audition.

so this audition day at the oval in london on saturday the 19th january is called the one off auditions date, before going to stage 2 auditions before the judges.

this is like a one off stage 1 style audition to qualify to the next stage and it is the last one for this season of the britain's got talent auditions of this nature, then it is onto the auditions before judges which people have previously qualified for by doing the previous open stage 1 auditions last year.

so this is your last chance to do the open audition for britain's got talent this year, and it is tomorrow at the oval in london on the 19th of january 2013, actually these are called the auditions that are before the producers, these open auditions.

and this is the last one of those because the next stage of auditions has already started before the actual judges like simon cowell.

the ones tomorrow are not before judges, but are before producers, but if you get through those you then qualify for the auditions that will be before the judges of britain's got talent 2013.

europeans can audition for the x factor uk 2013 eu right to work

europeans can audition for the x factor uk 2013, because of the eu right to work, this means that people from the eu can audition it says this below on the x factor's rules:

"You must have the right to live and work in the UK, Channel Islands, Isle of Man or Republic of Ireland".

so on the uk border agency website it says that:

"As an EEA or Swiss national, you have the right to live and work in the UK (known as the 'right of residence') if:

you are working here (and have obtained our permission to work if this is required - see below); or
you can support yourself and your family in the UK without becoming an unreasonable burden on public funds."

so you do need to meet those requirements to stay in the uk, though if you just travelled to the uk to audition and then travelled back home, spain for example, that would be expensive, travel etc wise, and so you would not be living in the uk and just coming to audition so that would be a lot easier.

if you planned to stay in the uk between auditions then that would be more difficult and so you would need to meet the requirements of the border agency.

it would also be easier if you was coming to the uk to audition for the x factor and had friends and family to stay at.

so auditioning for the uk x factor when you are from one of these countries depends on your situation as to how easy or difficult it will all be, obviously if you decided to work and live in the uk that would take a lot of setting up and organising.

but if you was just day travelling that would be easier though expensive.

these are the countries that currently are in the European Economic Area (EEA) though some of these countries below have there own x factor contests in 2013 so it would be much easier to audition in the country you live in!.

Iceland
Norway
Finland
Sweden
Ireland
United Kingdom
Denmark
Germany
Netherlands
Belgium
Luxembourg
Austria
Portugal
Spain
France
Italy
Greece
Liechtenstein
Czech Republic
Estonia
Cyprus
Latvia
Lithuania
Hungary
Malta
Poland
Slovenia
Slovakia
Bulgaria
Romania

auditions for the x factor in christchurch new zealand

auditions for the x factor in christchurch new zealand, these are the next set of auditions for the 13th of january, for the first season of the x factor in new zealand.

also to note that these are what is called "first stage" auditions and are not to be confused with stage 2 auditions which are different.

the first stage auditions are not before the actual x factor judges, but are before the x factor production staff, who will judge you, and decide if you make it through to the next stage which is the stage that is before the actual judges and i think is the stage that gets televised.

the reason it is done this way is because, if it is done with the judges first there would be too many people for them to judge and it would take too long, and so, there is a first stage of auditions where the numbers of auditionee's is whittled down, so that then in stage 2 the judges have a set amount of people to judge.

but this is the way it is and so, you have to progress through stage 1 to get to stage 2 and to have the chance to audition in the televised section of the show before the judges.

this is the format used at every x factor contest in other countries as well, so nothing new about it, it is seen as necessary due to the large amounts of people that can turn up at the first stage venues and to whittle things down.

so today the auditions in new zealand are in the city of christchurch, at the addington race course, 76 jack hinton drive.

how do you audition for the x factor to get through stage 1

how do you audition for the x factor to get through stage 1, or at the least improve your chances of impressing the judges and giving yourself the best possible chance of progressing as far as possible in the competition?.

well there are some things you can do some obvious some not so obvious.

you can start by rehearsing your chosen song, that might sound obvious, but it is surprising how many people audition and get there chosen song wrong, so this just means they did not practice the song until they were confident and had no problem remembering the song and singing it in front of people.

also make sure to be proficient with at least 2 or 3 songs, in case the judges would rather you sing one of your other chosen songs, i think you need at least 4 or 5 songs when you go to audition, though the judges are usually happy that you sing, your first choice, it is rare for them to pick one of your last choices, but it does help your chances in case they do pick one of your other chosen songs that you know the words to the song and are relatively comfortable singing the song as well.

so with that all said when it comes to auditioning for the x factor you also need to be positive, and that is shown by having confidence (if you have practiced your song in front of other people then you will have more confidence).

also try and have a smart appearance and not be over the top, so be unique, but not so unique that the judges find you over the top, so this is all about pleasing the judges, so for your audition you might need to change your style a bit, even though it might not be your regular style, but to audition the judges do want to see people who are sort of smart and casual with there own style as well.

then also make sure you plan everything out before the actual audition day, and so you will be ready come the audition with everything you need, and you will not have any last minute panics, or things that need doing in a rush, so like travel arrangements, and what you will wear, etc, so plan in advance.

one way is to look at the audition as being similar to a job interview and so you need to prepare in a advance and be ready to present yourself as best as possible, preparation is one of the main keys to be ready and doing your best possible audition.

interesting 6 of the x factor uk finalists were selected

interesting 6 of the x factor uk finalists were selected, bit of controversy, though that is nothing new for the x factor uk, this year 6 out of the 12 finalists had been asked to audition by the x factor producers.

though to be fair, tey were not guarrenteed to get to the finals like they did, but, 6 of the finalists had made it through the finals last year, after being asked to audition by the x factor producers.

well over the years it does seem that the x factor uk, has got more and more, formulated, i wouldn't say it is staged, but it is directed by the producers, to try and appear a certain way, well that is there jobs to direct the x factor, and make the show to a certain formula.

but if they over do this, it is going to look fake, because it will end up like everyone is acting, and it is turning into more of a popularity contest, rather then a singing contest.

whereas when x factor first started about 10 years ago, the acts seemed to be a lot more natural and real talent that had just decided to give it a go, whereas as now some of the acts appear too over produced at times on the uk x factor.
