The chance to land a spot on the X-Factor Australia saw the Goldfields Arts Centre full of budding singers.
At the first Kalgoorlie-Boulder auditions held yesterday more than 90 hopefuls of all ages sang their hearts out to the show’s producers.
By the end of the day, more than 20 were successful in impressing the judges and are now waiting for a call to say whether they will be heading to live auditions in front of TV judges.
One contestant travelled all the way from Melbourne after missing her city’s auditions.
Nineteen-year-old Kayla Morrow caught the first flight from Melbourne to Perth and then took the Prospector to Kalgoorlie-Boulder for the chance to be on the show.“I’m pretty modest, but I do think I have what it takes to do this and survive in the industry,” she said. “Music has been what I’ve loved to do since a young age and it’s the only thing I can see in my future. Anything else seems second best.”
