The nation’s favourite talent show is hitting the road again, and this time we’re looking for a talented act to take the crown of our landmark 10th series.
Scouring the length and breadth of the country our open audition tour will visit six cities across the UK.
Auditions kick off in Birmingham on Sunday 25th October in a search to uncover some of the best talent around, looking for wonderful, weird and astounding acts for next year’s series. The search will continue with further auditions in London, Cardiff, Liverpool Glasgow and Manchester. (Full details below).
Anyone looking to emulate the success of previous finalists should take a chance and apply now for the open auditions which are taking place between October – December this year. Successful acts will then be in with a chance of securing a place at one of the judges’ auditions in 2016 to audition in front of Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams.
The show is open to any performer of any age, with any talent – all they need is a skill and star quality which they think will impress. Anything goes from magicians to comedians, drag acts to singers and acrobats to animals. Aspiring acts can apply now via www.itv.com/talent and register for one of the audition days. You can also apply sending in a video audition of your act.
Executive Producer, Amelia Brown, said “This is a huge year for the show, as we look for our 10th winner! We’ve had some amazing winners over the last nine series – from Paul Potts and Diversity through to Collabro – and we can’t wait to see what talent the UK has to offer this year. If you feel you have something special to show us then apply at www.itv.com/talent.”
To date Susan Boyle has sold over 20 million records worldwide, Diversity have had five sell-out nationwide tours, Paul Potts is a multi-platinum selling artist with over 5 million records sold worldwide and in excess of 600 concerts performed and 2014’s winners, Collabro have had a number one album.
