Move over London! You’ve had the Olympics, now Manchester is getting the X factor final!
For the first time in the history of The X Factor the show is leaving London and staging the final up North at Manchester Central.
Judges Louis Walsh, Tulisa Contostavlos, Gary Barlow and Nicole Scherzinger plus host Dermot O’Leary and the X Factor finalists will all make the journey to Manchester where the show’s winner will be crowned.
Isn’t it crazy/exciting to be thinking about the X Factor final when we don’t even know who’s going to be a contestant on the show yet?
Fans can win tickets to the show thanks to TalkTalk by heading on over to the X Factor Facebook page. 10,000 tickets are up for grabs.
Louis Walsh has said of the historic move, “Our Live Final is going to be another major event - so The X Factor 2012 has everything! I believe it’s going to be our best series yet.”
While Tristia Clarke, Commercial Director of TalkTalk is also excited about leaving London for the final,
“We can't wait to take The X Factor Live Finals to Manchester for the first time. This year we helped to create the mobile auditions which recruited talent from all over the country and we're delighted that 10,000 of our customers will have the chance to join us at the finals in Manchester.”
The very FIRST audition show stars THIS Saturday, and we are SO excited! Arrrgh!
