The X Factor returning Feb 15

the-x-factor-nz-2014It’s finally here! The most talked about television show of the year – The X Factor NZ returns to TV3 for a second season.

Screening three nights a week, The X Factor NZ is kicking off the season with three nights of auditions filmed at Auckland’s SkyCity Theatre, where hundreds of nervous contestants perform in front of a live audience and The X Factor NZ judges.

SUNDAY15 FEBRUARY, 19.00-20.30
MONDAY 16 FEBRUARY, 19.30-20.30
TUESDAY 17 FEBRUARY, 19.30-20.30

Returning this season are fan favourites Stan Walker and Melanie Blatt, with international artists and husband and wife duo Willy Moon and Natalia Kills rounding off this year’s judging panel.

“I love the new judges,” says Melanie Blatt. “It’s nice to get fresh ears on the panel, but it’s still a competition and I still want to win!”

The acts that survive the TV Audition stage will then move on to Boot Camp at Vector Arena, where they will be divided into four categories – Boys, Girls, Over 25s and Groups – which for the first time include bands! Here they will be put through their paces and mercilessly whittled down until only 24 acts remain.

“I really want someone to win who deserves it rather than a great karaoke singer who thinks it’s all fun and games,” says Willy Moon. “The people that I’m going to put through are people that I see have artistic potential.”
