The X Factor Australia Is Now Auditioning, But Is It Just About The Singing?

The X Factor Australia has commenced auditions for their third season, but if it is just about the talent why the need for a ten page application form?

What is so important to these shows are the back stories of the contestants, it might not get you to the top 16 but it might just get you through a few rounds and get that important exposure on TV to get noticed. Or give you a chance to improve or showcase your likeability so the judges do take a punt on you.

The questions on the form include: What makes you a star?, Tell us ‘your story’ from childhood to now?, and have you had any health issues either physically or emotionally?

Be prepared for the audition and that is not just about singing that song perfectly, make sure you look interesting on paper as well, and also stand out from the crowd at the audition. Dress in an outfit that showcases and represents you, and that does not mean a bikini for the girls. Though that did work for one American Idol contestant in years gone past.

If you want assistance with your application contact me.

Reading those questions,the process really failed last year when a beige cheese machine called Andrew Wishart made it to the Finale. Altijan Juric has crashed and burned ,too.

Any production that could spawn the likes of Altiyan Childs has no credibility IMO. Unfortunately we haven’t heard the last of him and his tragic followers.

It’s the fourth season, not third

Third season of the new revised version of The X Factor. I have repressed the series on Channel Ten.

I think the most important thing is to appear totally desperate and delusional. Your family and friends care too much for your feelings to tell you straight up that you can’t sing for jack…so you figure you must be a star, cruelly undiscovered by the vulgar masses.

You can absolutely blow the audition and still be chosen, like Altijan Juric- forget the lyrics and just stop singing. Don’t forget to lie about your drug use,either.

None of the judges have the x factor so the whole concept just can’t work can it?

Just want to find out, that my daughter and her friends audition for the x factor, and they got told that they will email if they make it in the next round, on the 29 of April, and they havent heard from them, how can they find out if they make it in or not, please evem if they didnt make it in could you please sen a email, the name of their group, is Blessed sensation, I think.
