X Factor auditions being held at Byron Bay this week

HAVE you ever wanted to be a rock god or a pop princess?

Or maybe you've got a special talent that you're ready to unleash on the world?

Well, you're in luck - popular TV show, the X Factor, is bringing its 2015 auditions to Byron Bay this week.

The Northern Rivers has already produced some talented stars for this Channel 7 show, including former Trinity Catholic College student Mitchell Smith, who made it into the top 12 contestants in 2010.

Last year the band Brothers 3 made it into the top three, and they are regular performers in Ballina.

Now Channel 7 is searching for the next round of talented locals, and they'll be in Byron Bay on Thursday to host auditions.

"From all walks of life, The X Factor creates acts that are ready to conquer the world," a spokesperson from the X Factor said.

"This time last year, Marlisa Punzalan was a schoolgirl with a dream of becoming a singing sensation.

"Following her smashing success on the show, her single Stand By You has now gone gold, and she has just released her self-titled debut album. Talk about a dream come true!

"We want to give as many performers as possible the opportunity to be a part of Australia's most successful singing competition.

"Auditions are already streaming in, and The X Factor producers will select the very best who will then audition in front of our judges."

This year's judges will be Danni Minogue, Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Ronan Keating and Redfoo.
