Audition dates for X Factor New Zealand have been announced.
Tauranga performers can audition on January 26 at Tauranga's 16th Ave Theatre from 10am to 5pm.
Co-executive producer of the X-Factor Andrew Szusterman said this competition was not about juggling monkeys or walking dogs, it's about finding the next great singer to sign with Sony Music Entertainment.
"It is a massive production with lots and lots of different layers and we've been working on this thing for quite some time and we're now at the point where we're ready to get the rest of New Zealand across it and up in front of us and auditioning away to see who the next big recording artist out of this country's going to be."
Bay of Plenty born Stan Walker as one of the judges.
Contestants who are successful in the pre-auditions will get to perform in front of the four judges and a live audience.
