Nearly 100 talented singers with their family and friends filled the Goldfields Arts Centre for the first Kalgoorlie-Boulder X-Factor auditions on Tuesday.

More than a quarter of the entrants made it to the second stage of auditions and will now wait for a call to find out if they made it to the 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.”

Series producer Andrew Cam said Kalgoorlie-Boulder made a great first impression.
