    The info was supplied by Seven. I have now corrected to include 2013.

    hey guys sorry if i bother you but i was warding if you new why these audition have 2012 on the

    yeah i don’t think this means anything to scheduling, it’s only about a month earlier than usual anyway.

    casting/audition calls spark rumours every season for every reality show. i’m guessing BATG will do an audition call in a few days and people will think the show is returning in Feb, but it will once again wait until october.

    Agree this is speculative. AGT can’t be on Nine until 12 months after its finale was on Seven, but I do think Seven wants to tap into the talent pool before AGT gets underway.

    Well considering they have not even announced the judges for next year, this will just be the producers of the show scouting for talent.

    Dont expect the actual auditions to happen til mid next year as they did this year….

    @ C-Boy, that was my instantaneous initial contemplation. It leaves the sense the show will be pitted in opposition to “The Voice”. In the event of this, Seven undisputedly will be committing the ultimate cardinal sin in programming. Didn’t they learn a lesson from this year’s Australia’s Got Talent? Scheduling The X Factor earlier means Seven can’t capitalise on it, case in point “shock eliminations” can’t be bankrolled off the triumph of The Melbourne Cup. Promotions of their flagship programs for the following year are adversely affected.

    Ronan Keating and Guy Sebastian are touring in March and April of 2013 so it’s also possible The X Factor will air in June and going up against Channel Nine’s reboot of Australia’s Got Talent.

    Seven may be strategising to curb the prospect of Ten reintroducing Australian Idol. There are so many variables. In any event, I hope their intention isn’t to produce two seasons of The X Factor in one year.

    Filling in the gap left by Australia’s Got Talent.

    X Factor must be going head to head with The Voice!

  9. C-Boy November 20, 2012 at 7:38 am -

    So X Factor’s starting early next year?
