If you’re itching to discover what really happens during those preliminary auditions then follow me on Twitter (the button’s on your left) and prepare to find out.
On Saturday April 9th, I will be at Cardiff City Stadium with my singer/guitarist brother, Darren, as his X Factor campaign gets under way.
Assuming my phone is up to the job, I will be tweeting hourly updates from 5am until the end of the audition process.
So click that little button and find out if Darren can crack those auditions and earn that coveted place in front of the TV judges.
