The X Factor NZ Releases The Hottest Tickets In Town

TV3 has released the first audience tickets for highly anticipated The X Factor NZ.

Fans of The X Factor are invited to head to TV3.co.nz/XFactorNZ to secure tickets for the taping of the hit show’s televised auditions – and see the judging panel of Stan Walker, Daniel Bedingfield, Melanie Blatt and Ruby Frost in action for the first time.

Host Dominic Bowden says like the rest of New Zealand, he can’t wait to see the judges in action – and he warns that this judging panel is unlikely to take it easy on the contestants.

“I think good music, good voices and of course that x-factor will keep our judges happy,” says Dom. “But if they don’t see it, we may very well have four Simons on our hands!”

Tickets are complimentary, and are available on a strictly limited basis. There will be 12 televised auditions held between Feb 26 and March 3 at Auckland’s SKYCITY Theatre.

SKYCITY has partnered with TV3 for the series, joining Broadcast Sponsor Ford New Zealand, and programme partners McDonald’s, Coca-Cola, and Samsung Electronics.

A full list of session times and dates, as well as terms and conditions, is available online at www.tv3.co.nz/xfactornz

About The X Factor NZ

Hosted by Dominic Bowden, with Melanie Blatt, Ruby Frost, Daniel Bedingfield and Stan Walker as the four-strong judging panel, The X Factor NZ is the first local version of the global television phenomenon format put on the map by music mogul Simon Cowell.

The world’s leading singing talent search, The X Factor has launched numerous internationally successful music careers, including Leona Lewis, Reece Mastin and One Direction. The X Factor artists have globally sold over 100 million records, achieving 250 number ones, 270 Top 10, and 501 Top 50 hit records.

In 2013, New Zealanders will have the chance to put their singing talent to the test, as The X Factor NZ travels the length and breadth of the country, from Invercargill to Kaitaia, with one goal - to discover the next great New Zealand recording artist.

The X Factor NZ is open to singers of aged 14 and up, either solo performers or groups. Contestants who make it through the audition process are split into categories – Boys under 25, Girls under 25, the over 25s and the Groups. Each category is mentored by one of judges, who will work alongside the contestants as they compete for a prize that includes a recording contract with Sony Music Entertainment New Zealand.

The X Factor NZ is a SYCO owned format and is co-produced by MediaWorks and FremantleMedia Australia.
The Broadcast Sponsor is Ford New Zealand, with programme partners McDonald’s, Coca-Cola, and Samsung Electronics. NZ on Air is a minority funder of the show.

Entry information is available online, as well as details of the remaining dates of The X Factor NZ pre-auditions. The search for contestants for The X Factor NZ continues in Auckland on Friday 1 and Saturday 2 of February, and will visit New Plymouth, Whangarei and Kerikeri before finishing in Kaitaia on Waitangi Day.
