The X Factor 2008 Official Website HERE

 

The fifth UK series of The X Factor is due to be broadcast on ITV from Saturday 16th August through to December 2008.

 

Auditions in front of producers were held in April/May, with callbacks in front of the judges in June. The number of applicants for series 5 reached an all-time high with a reported 182,000 people auditioning.

 

Like the previous series a year before, series 5 gained media attention even before auditions in front of the judges began. Press attention was largely over the changes made to the cast—most notably the departures of Sharon Osbourne as a judge and Fearne Cotton as presenter of spin-off show The Xtra Factor.

 

After much media reportage, on 10 June 2008 ITV confirmed that Osbourne was to be replaced by Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Cole. Cotton is being replaced by Holly Willoughby!

 

Well The X Factor starts tonight at 7.30pm on ITV1, with The Xtra Factor following immediately after on ITV2 at 8.30pm.

I much prefer the auditions-you get to hear the scary bad singers, and the ones who think they're amazing and have all this family support but are actually nothing special. It's great to see their faces drop before they go all psycho on the judges :lol

There was a guy from Dwich last year who was one of the bad auditionees. Now he wears a tshirt around the town advertising he was on xfactor and does special kareoke appearances :D I love the mad people on the auditions, but Simon Cowell is right, they should not be encouraged by friends and family - it's cruel!

The audtions are the best bit!

 

I was hooked on Pop Idol 2(Sam, Mark, Chris :wub:wub:wub), but never got into X Factor as much. I watch it when I can, but not that bothered if I miss it

Hey look, it's someone who's quite photogenic, can string more than two words together, has a dramatic and/or tragic story AND has solemn piano music playing as they introduce her before her audition.

 

I wonder if she'll get through...

 

::: EDIT :::

 

Colour me surprised! She got through! Wowzer! Never saw THAT coming!

 

Man I'm getting cynical in my old age...
