So do you like the reinstatement of the more intimate audition room segment or do you feel the same as Simon Cowell who recently admitted to the press that he found it “awkward and uncomfortable”?
If that revelation from the notoriously tough, Teflon-coated Mr C has stunned you, bear in mind that the entire judging panel is softer this year, according to Dermot O’Leary. “I don’t know whether it is time and getting older, but… it definitely feels very warm now,” he explained about their new-found empathy. Probably won’t stop Mrs O’s antics though.
Decide for yourself whether Dermot’s right or not with tonight’s round of auditions.
Dermot O'Leary presents as more would-be pop icons face their room auditions, which make a return to the show following their absence last year. These private auditions give contestants a chance to display their musical abilities in much more intimate conditions, without a baying audience to distract them - or back them up should Simon Cowell and co offer withering feedback.
