Hi all,

Just heard of a couple of singing acts who have received their BGT Audition confirmation for the next series.

Not quite sure where they are both auditioning but sounds very soon as both of them are on 2nd November. Could be Manchester, but I’ll try to keep you updated ASAP.

Anyone else had any Audition confirmation news yet ?

    OK folks, here we go,

    The 2011 BGT Auditions rollercoaster is most certainly underway.

    Manchester is definitely on 2nd November & just heard of a solo singer who has also got her Manchester Audition confirmation today for that date.

    Only 1 weeks notice so that ain’t giving people much time to sort out travel arrangements, etc !!

    I have an audition at Manchester on the Sunday 31st October and I got told this information on Saturday 23rd October.

    Do you know any audiditon details? I have never auditioned before πŸ™
    Is the audition that appears on TV?

  3. MattLynch

    Is this a good sign becaus this much earlier than last year as my last one was in november like late november.

    And this is my 3rd time to try out, and my number is a very low number, this a good sign?

  4. Robbi

    Not sure if this is good or bad as it looks like the Audition rota has changed this year.

    Glasgow was 21st October last year but I have not yet heard of anyone receiving their Audition invites for Glasgow this year.

    I sent in my application form on October 20th.  Do you think that it will still be counted?  I put my first choice as Glasgow, my second as Liverpool, but i live near Aberdeen so it would take me a whiley to get to either.  I hope they give me plenty warning.  Also this is the first time i have ever applied. Does anyone know that if you aren’t accepted to audition, do you still get an email telling you that or do you only get an email if you have an audition?  Thanks, Lauren xx

      Not sure if you have applied in time or not as several weeks ago the message on the BGT website said that applications were full, but now it looks like they have decided to extend the deadline.

      I have just come across some news indicating that the TV shows for BGT 2011 will be shown later next year in the autumn, as opposed to around April & the 2011 series initial auditions seem to be starting a few weeks later than last year- for example the Glasgow Auditions were on 21st Oct last year, but still no news this time round.

      The reason for delaying this years audition process is probably because of the re-scheduling of X Factor with initial auditions for the next series now taking place just after autumn next year, as X Factor will not reappear on TV until early in 2012, possibly between January & April.

      In any case, I expect as in previous years, everyone applying in time for BGT should be allocated an initial audition spot & be advised of their audition date by e-mail.

      The process in previous years has been that no-one is given a Yes or No at the initial audition- instead successful auditionees for the 2nd round TV Celebrity Judges Auditions will be contacted by e-mail, early in the new year. Unsuccessful auditionees will be sent an e-mail after all the successful auditionees have been contacted.

      I also live just outside Aberdeen so I might see you in Glasgow !

      All the best πŸ™‚


      1. Laurenski_x

        Oh man πŸ™ I’ll just have to hope that i’ve done it in time. Haha! If you are auditioning for Glasgow be sure to let me know when you get your email through, incase mines is floating around in with the junk mail or something πŸ™‚


        That’s weird that we’re from the same area kinda.  Nearer to the thing if i get an audition i’ll make you well aware of what im gonna be dressed up as, so i doubt you’ll miss me πŸ˜€


        Thanks, and all the best to you too!

      from what ive heard cardiff auditions are 28th nov-1st dec and birmingham are around the 9th dec….they seem to be informing people quite close to the audition date! x

  6. yumimummi

    Hi,im still waiting for Cardiff and my second choice Torquay as well.People who have said some dates,how do you know ? Ive been looking eveywhere and cant find any dates.Apart from i notice Applause are now selling tickets for the buzzer round at Cardiff Milenium centre on the 25th and 26th January next year,same dates as last year.If anyone hears anything bout Cardiff please let me know !!!! Starting to panick im not going to get a first audition !!!! Goodluck to everyone !!!XX 

  7. harini

    I hope you get your audition soon!

    Please can you tell me if you find out any dates for the buzzer rounds at manchester (because i dont have an applause account), and i fear that even if i am selected, i might be on holiday.

  8. yumimummi

    Hi ya !!! Just go to applause the website,click on BGT 2011 and it gives a selection .Not sure if any other dates are there yet as i didnt look,but ,yes,if you think you may get through its a good way to try and make sure youre free.Ive got a 17 week old baby,a 4 year old and a 5 year old to arrange child care for,so its really really handy to get a bit of notice !!! Unlike these auditions !!!! Please give me more than 2 days notice !!!! That would be just impossible for me and my hubby and my friends to work round,a good week would be lovely !!!!

  13. Laurenski_x

    Basically both members of my act are 16.  All children under 18 must be accompanied by a legal guardian.  My mum was going to take us both down but now my friends mum/dad must also come but her mums a teacher and cant really take a day off her work to accompany her child to the audition and her dad runs his own business so he can’t leave it either.  We’re not sure what to do as we really want to do this.  Should we phone up and explain our situation or what shall we do?? Please help :S xxx

  14. conniemoore

    Yeeaah i would phone up and explain the situation and see what they say. You might be able to do it with a letter from their parents or something x hope this elps x

    1. Laurenski_x

      Okay thanks conniemoore i just needed some advice cos i hate making decisions myself! πŸ™‚ i’ll probably get her mum to do it since she’s the one who canna make it, thanks again  x

    Looking forward to BGT next year! Hopefully there should be some good talent out there. Talking of talent, if you love Matt Cardle, and struggle to function until the weekend without hearing him, worry no more because he is in a band called ‘SevenSummers’ and their self-titled debut album is out right NOW to download on iTunes etc. You can also follow this twitter page for all the latest news and gossip. There is also a great weekly blog for your reading pleasure! If you tweet the twitter page that you have bought the album, you usually get a shout-out or some other surprise in return! Everyone go buy and follow.

    Big Love

    Good luck everyone

        Oh hope you are ok, my daughter had her audition. It is a wonderful day, not to be missed. 3 days after her audition we got an email asking what school and council she is in, also for emergency contact details to be forwarded. not heard since..

  19. michelle

    Well it’s my audition tomorrow (11/12/10) I am singing and I am full of cold. Well that’s sods law. Will just have to do my best πŸ™

  20. michelle

    Well I had my audition at Birmingham on the 11th. It was a lovely day. However, If I get to the next stage it will be a miracle. I was full of cold and felt really poorly. I know I did not do the best I can do but I tried. As soon as I could I went back home and went back to bed. Oh well things happen for a reason and there is always next year xx
