Auditionees can register online for one of the audition days, turn up in person or send in your own video audition via the website or Whatsapp.

Successful applicants will have the chance to take part in series 15 of the hit music show.

The Wearside dates will be a nationwide audition tour which is open to groups or solo singers aged 14 and over and everyone who turns up on the day will be guaranteed an audition.
