BEST Auditions From The X Factor UK 2018 Part 1! | X Factor Global



How to Audition for the X Factor

Two Methods:

The X Factor is an incredibly popular TV show where people go to audition to become a hit singer in today's charts. They have discovered Leona Lewis, One Direction, Cher Lloyd, Olly Murs, Little Mix, Fifth Harmony, and Rebecca Ferguson. If you want to audition, here is how to get started.

Steps

Before the Audition

  1. Know the deadlines and regulations.For X-factor UK, there are different dates and rules. Make sure you meet all the requirements and complete every step before all deadlines.
    • You need to be 14 or older. This is regardless of whether you're in a group or a solo act.
  2. Master a verse of a song.Or two songs, just in case the person before you sang the same one. You'll be singing it acapella (without any instruments or backing track -- just you) in front of an X-Factor team member and the crowd around you.
    • Avoid being clichéd. Only sing Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, or Jennifer Hudson if you're just as good. Pick a song that you know won't be the 500th time your judge has heard it that day. If that's the case, you'll be compared to everyone else on two different levels.
      • The judge doesn't have to know the song. In fact, it may be better if they don't.
  3. Apply online.Before the season starts, there is an application form online at the website of your country's version of the X Factor. This is months and months in advance, so you may need to wait until the next season rolls around.
    • There are plenty of auditions by "mobile van" each year. In fact, that's how James Arthur auditioned. Get connected on the website, Facebook, and Twitter for announcements.
  4. Find an open call.If you missed the online application, there's still an open call. Thousands of people do it. If one is in your area, great! Suit up and start practicing.
    • In the UK, open call auditions were held in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Cardiff, and Glasgow.But there were tons of mobile van auditions -- just the beginning of the list is Aberdeen, Colchester, the Isle of Wight, and Dublin.
  5. Pick out an outfit.On the audition notice received when you fill out your form, it explicitly says tostand out from the crowd. Personalities are so large there really is no limit. Whatever matches your personality, go for it.
    • This show is all about spectacle. Here's what the form says: "Dress as the pop star you want to be - we are looking for the next big music sensation so make an impact. We also highly encourage everyone to bring along posters and banners to the open day - the brighter the better!"
    • Fortunately or unfortunately (no one is quite sure), wearing your wedding dress or a plastic chicken on your head is not unheard of. You may stand out more by not trying too hard, believe it or not.
  6. Stay warmed up.If the audition is months away, don't quit. Run through your piece every other day or so until you can do it on one leg with your hands tied behind your back. Stay vocally healthy to boot.
    • Load up on warm water. Stay away from alcohol (dries out your throat) and definitely don't smoke. If you're concerned you're getting a tickle, go for green tea, pineapple juice, and get on vocal rest. Don't strain your voice -- that'll just wear it out.

At the Open Audition

  1. Get there early.There will literally be thousands of others waiting near you to get their 30 seconds, too. Parking will be limited, so if you can avoid driving, do it. And if you're a minor, bring a guardian with you.
    • Get there very, very early. People will be waiting in the wee hours of the morning.You may want to bring some food, drinks (water!), a chair, and something to amuse yourself.
  2. Be patient.This will most likely take all day. That's even if you've been informed to get there at 8 AM. They are seeing thousands of people and won't likely get started until everything is settled and everyone is ushered into the arena (or whatever the type of venue). Your audition will likely take place 8 or so hours after you've arrived.
    • Account for the weather. Your hair and makeup may not look as great as you want it to when you're auditioning at 5 PM and got there at 5 AM. Bring extra makeup and comfortable shoes. You'll be grateful you did.
  3. Sing your heart out.Finally, the fun part! When your number is called, a team member (someone you won't recognize) will approach you and listen to you sing. You'll be doing this in front of everyone -- there is no designated, blocked-off area for singers. Take a deep breath and go big or go home.
    • The judge will then give you a polite yes or no. They are not allowed to critique you or give you feedback. If you do make it, you'll be notified of a call back audition at a later date.

  • Question
    How long do I have to sing my song?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    It really depends on the judges and whether they want to hear you singing until the end of the song or not. In most cases, however, you should expect to sing until the end of your song.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    How do you find out when or where an audition is?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Go to the X-Factor website, fill out the application form, and a representative will contact you.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    Can I audition if I am from a different country?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Yes, you can, but you just have to make sure that what you are singing is in English.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    What if I get nervous and faint?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    I am sure that someone will get you water and something to make you feel better, and they may allow you to audition afterwards. If you get nervous like that easily, practice until you know it's perfect, that way you'll feel more confident. Or you may want to sing in front of a large group of people who you can trust, and have them build you up for the occasion.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    What kind of songs should I sing?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    You can sing romantic, funny, original, or sad songs. Whatever you like. Choose something that suits your voice and your style.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    What can I do if I am really shy?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Being shy, especially when it comes to auditions, is normal and something even the most experienced actors face. Try practicing in front of a mirror or some close friends. Also, try not to think about what others might think of you, or how they might react to your performance. It won't make you completely ready, but it will help increase your confidence.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    How many times would I have to audition before I meet the X Factor judges?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    You first sing in front of all the contestants for a round 15 seconds and one producer in front, and he will tell you yes or no. If you get a yes, you will need to go again the next day and do it again with 2 producers watching you. After that, if they tell you yes, then you will go audition in front of the judges.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    Am I able to audition with a guitar?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Any instrument is allowed as long as it has something to do with your performance.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    What is it like to be on stage?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    To many people, it feels amazing and they'd do anything to do it again because it is so energizing. Give it a go -- join a local drama or singing group to find out for yourself.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    What if I'm singing for X Factor and my voice cracks, would they still count it?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Yes, they will every thing you do that involves singing they judge. They write it down on their "Fancy' check boards so they can judge you on everything.
    Thanks!

Quick Summary

To audition for The X Factor, start by learning the deadlines and regulations to make sure you meet all the requirements, such as being 14 or older. Next, apply online or find an open call. As you prepare for your audition, pick an outfit that will make you stand apart from the crowd, memorize a verse of a song that you can sing without musical accompaniment, and keep practicing every day until the audition. At the audition, arrive early, bring food and water, and be patient until you’re calling. Once you’re in the room, sing your heart out!

Did this summary help you?
  • Carry water with you. Make sure it's not cold -- that'll tighten up your vocal folds.
  • Don't say rude things or anything you might regret. You only get one chance to make that first impression.
  • Be confident! Superstars don't show their nerves.
  • If you are nervous of singing in front of people practice singing in front of toys or friends.If that does not work join a singing club that does shows.
  • Be yourself and have fun!
  • Always bring a book or portable electronic device. There's a long wait ahead.
  • Don't worry if you mess up just try again next time.
  • Try to sing a song that will make the judges feel emotional, even Simon Cowell!
  • Master your song. Simon's brutally honest, and sometimes that's not a good thing.
