Bishop Auckland College, County Durham has announced a 17-week course in how to best prepare for your X Factor audition. It will feature technical tuition in singing and coaching on the audition process. One of the 40 places in the course will cost you £95. Mike Jinks, head of Arts, Music and Performing Arts at the college had this to say: "I wanted to run a course which prepared people for X Factor auditions and similar competitions across the country. Many applicants have talent but need to work on key things such as their singing technique and confidence."
The course finishes up perfectly in time for the first round of auditions. It will be very interesting to see how many of the graduates are amongst the finalists next year.
