The X Factor Is Returning This Year – Wow Lost That Bet
In somewhat surprising news The X Factor is returning to Channel 7 this year, I have to admit I did not see that coming. The ratings were not as big as they hoped they would be considering the multi-million dollar investment into the show by seven.
However I think it is a positive thing. The production values were high and there was some talent.
The auditions which start in two weeks will be open to groups and singers, with a new change with the lowering of the age limit to 14 years.
Currently there is no confirmation on who the judges or the host will be. It will be interesting to see if Kyle Sandilands signs on again as it said it was more work than he thought. Also with news that he was taken to hospital from the Australia’s Got Talent auditions for high blood pressure, may make him a bit of a liability. I expect Ronan Keating will be returning.
Auditions will begin this month in Perth and travel around the country.
