We may not have our official lineup of judges yet but The X Factor auditions are still kicking off in Dublin this weekend. Although at this point it's just the open auditions so any Tom, Dick or Harry (or Niall or Liam) can show up and then could be put through to sing for the actual judges over the summer.

The first round of The X Factor auditions will take place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at St Stephen's Green shopping centre from 10am to 6pm each day and organisers have promised that everyone will get a chance to perform.

If you can't make it up to Dublin, auditions will also be taking place in Derry at the Richmond Shopping Centre on Friday May 11th from 1pm to 8pm, and in Belfast on Saturday May 12 and Sunday May 13, from 10am to 6pm on Saturday and 1pm to 6pm on Sunday at 1 Victoria Square.

Already have plans for this weekend? Never fear, you can still apply online or even on WhatsApp at 00447733222927, just so long as you are over fourteen years old.

This year the show has decided to axe the room auditions so those that go through will be heading straight to the arena auditions, so no pressure like.
