The UK’s favourite singing show, The X Factor, is back and on the lookout for the next big breakout music stars as they travel the length and breadth of the country on the 2017 audition tour.

The X Factor team will be coming to Eastgate Shopping Centre on Sunday 5th February!

If you think you could be the next Matt Terry, Louisa Johnson, One Direction, Little Mix or Olly Murs, or know someone who you think could be, now is the time to come along and showcase your vocal talent.

Come along to the open auditions which will be held between 11am and 5pm in the former M&Co unit next to Costa Coffee and Debenhams.

Acts are advised to turn up early to be sure to grab a slot as the Mobile Auditions are on a first come, first served basis. 

All any budding hopefuls need to do is turn up on Sunday 5th February between 11am and 5pm.

If they impress The X Factor team with their vocals, they will then be in with a chance of auditioning in front of the X Factor judges, when the judges’ auditions take place in summer.

Eastgate Centre Manager, Jackie Cuddy, said

“We’re delighted to be included in the auditions for the next X Factor series.

“We can’t wait to see what Inverness has to offer- who knows, the winner of X Factor 2017 could be one of our very own Eastgate shoppers!”

For anyone not able to make the Inverness audition date, you can also send in your own video audition via our website https://application.xfactor.tv/

The hit show has uncovered some outstanding talent across the years.

To date, One Direction have sold more than 70 million records worldwide, Olly Murs released four multi-platinum albums with his fifth 24 Hours being recently certified platinum, while Little Mix’s fourth album Glory Days is now the longest reigning No.1 in the UK since the Spice Girls' debut album Spice.

In 2016, three of the four British lead acts to chart at No.1 in the UK singles chart were discovered by The X Factor – Zayn, James Arthur and Little Mix.

Last year’s winner Matt Terry is currently working on his debut album, after his charity winner’s single When Christmas Come Around debuted at No. 3 in the Official UK Charts.

The X Factor will return to ITV later this year. Fans of the show can follow all the action via @TheXFactor on Twitter and Instagram and on www.Facebook.com/TheXFactor
