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.
