THE X Factor is coming to Coventry today in the hunt for the next big music stars.

The open auditions tour will be at The Loft, on Level 3 of the West Orchards Shopping Centre, between 10am and 6pm.

But anyone hoping to see Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne will be disappointed as at this stage it's only producton staff doing the judging.

But they were voted off the reality show during its first live weekend, following a sing-off with Saara Aalto, who went on to reach the final stage of the competition.

"Just one audition could change your life, so if you think you've got what it takes then why don't you apply?" Acts are advised to turn up early to the open auditions and everyone who turns up will be guaranteed an audition.

All budding hopefuls need to do is turn up on the date and time specified.

If they impress The X Factor team with their vocals, they will then be in with a chance of auditioning in front of the X Factor judges, when the judges' auditions take place this summer.
