Yes, it's back... already! The X Factor UK 2014 auditions start soon and here's all you need to know about applying.
While the judges won't be confirmed for some months yet, producers will be kicking off the search for the latest batch of singers early in the new year.
As always, you must be sixteen years of age or over by the 16th of March, 2014
Groups and soloists are once again welcome to apply and beyond the age limit, there's little other conditions.
Any singer from any background can try out, by either applying online and uploading a video or in person at an open audition day.
The X Factor 2014 open audition dates will be confirmed in due course, for now you can apply online and register your interest over at... application.xfactor.tv.
Have your video (of you singing, obviously) ready!
Meanwhile, the reserve list to be in the audience for the show is already open.
Head over to Applause Store now to sign up to be told about tickets.
This year bosses ditched the first round of arena auditions in favour of a return to the judges' rooms, with a second audition in front of an audience for those who had three or more yeses.
We'll be sure to keep you updated...
