More than 100 performers attended the pre-audition tour for TV3 television talent quest X Factor NZ yesterday, while a similar number turned up for the Queenstown auditions on Sunday, publicist Rose Swale said yesterday.

The pre-auditions are being held in 27 locations, with successful contestants then performing before a studio audience and judging panel in Auckland.

The programme will be hosted by presenter Dominic Bowden and the winner will receive a prize package which includes a contract with Sony Music Entertainment New Zealand. The X Factor NZ pre-audition tour continues at the Oamaru Opera House from 10am to 3pm today.
