The X Factor is back on our screens again for its fifteenth year and there have been some quite noticeable changes this time around. Along with the shake-up of the judging panel, there are also some alterations to the audition locations.
With new judges Robbie Williams, his wife Ayda and Louis Tomlinson brought in, there’s sure to be lots of new talent trying to get their attention. This year, auditions took place, in part, at both Benidorm and Tenerife as the search for new contestants stretched overseas. This is the first time the show has ever headed to Spain, with the hope to find a singing gem or two hiding in the expat community.
There were two dates added to the audition schedule in early April, which were also communicated to locals in the area – so there may well be a Spanish superstar or two featuring on the shows as well. With both Benidorm and Tenerife home to many a tribute act, there’s sure to be a few who made their way to see the judges, but will they make it onto the televised cut?
Benidorm and Tenerife won’t be the only popular holiday spots featuring on this year's X Factor as the four-strong panel will host the contestants in their own homes during the Judges' Houses stage. In previous editions, we’ve seen destinations such as Ireland, southern France, LA and San Francisco feature, though with new faces deciding the singing hopefuls' fate, we're likely to see fresh locations visited.
Wherever they end up, we’ll be tuning in to see all the latest from the show...and fill ourselves with holiday inspiration no doubt!
