Over the past few weeks the X-Factor tour buses have been taking to the roads of Britain in a bid to find the next budding superstar from amongst tens of thousands of hopefuls that. Many turned up to the various auditions in a bid to impress the judges and secure their place in the 2015 show. Fans of the hit show will undoubtedly be chomping at the bit with impatience as they wait for the thrilling Saturday night shows to begin.
For many, watching the X-Factor is all about enjoying Saturday evenings in front of the TV and enjoying the incredible entertainment that Simon Cowell’s master creation brings to the small screen. Many really get into the spirit such as those looking at the X-Factor odds on sites such as Flash Bitch so that they can have a flutter on who might win the live final, which adds even more excitement to the proceedings. Many even have live final parties, dressing up as some of the finalists from the show and watching with friends and family.
What can we expect?
It’s difficult to know what to expect from the 2015 X-Factor, as every year there tends to be some surprise or shock revelation that throws both the contestants and the viewers because it is so unexpected. This is something that the show has become adept at – not just the X-Factor but also the shock-factor. Whatever the producers have planned for this year’s show, it is certain to be bigger and better than ever before. The show has already hosted its biggest ever tour of Britain as part of the auditions process so fans should have plenty to look forward to both at the auditions stage of the televised show and when the lives shows begin.
Of course, fans will be a little thrown by some of the changes that have already been announced such as the departure of Irish music manager Louis Walsh, who has been one of the judges for the past eleven years apart from a short spell in 2007 when he was temporarily replaced by Brian Freidman. Another big change will be the departure of the host of the main show, Dermot O’Leary, who has been hosting the show for 2007 and has become a huge hit amongst fans. He will be replaced by former Xtra-Factor hosts Olly Murs and Caroline Flack.
Despite the changes, fans of the show will no doubt be having far more Saturday nights in than during the rest of the year when the 2015 season begins. The X-Factor has become something of a British institution over the past decade and its popularity seems to become increasingly intense with every season.
