Should I send in a DVD before my audition?
You do NOT need to send in a DVD if you are attending one of our auditions and it will not increase your chances of being considered for the show. Equally you do not need to upload an online showcase in order to apply for the show.

Can I change my assigned open audition day?
NO. The day you are assigned on your confirmation email is the only day you can attend the open audition.

What time shall I arrive for my audition?
Please only arrive at the time stated on your audition invite. You will not be admitted at any other time

How long will my open audition be?
There will be waiting so please plan to be at the audition all day just in case. Please note that performance time with the producers may vary.

Is the open audition in front of the coaches?
NO. COACHES WILL NOT BE AT THE OPEN AUDITIONS! The open auditions are with The Voice UK casting team. There will be no coaches or celebrities present, Open Auditions will be filmed for the casting team but are unlikely to be broadcast. You will have to make it to the Blind Audition stage before you have a chance of appearing on the programme.

Can I bring friends and family to the audition with me?
Family, friends, managers, vocal instructors, etc. will NOT be allowed at the Open Audition. If you are 16 or 17, one (1) parent or guardian will be allowed with you at the audition.

Is there anything else I need to bring besides my "Audition Invite"?
Your “Audition Invite” will include a link to a Release Form covering the terms of your Open Audition. If you wish to participate in the Open Auditions, you MUST sign and bring the Release Form along with you to the Open Auditions with your photo ID. If you are under 18 years old at the time of your Open Audition, you MUST have the signature from a parent or legal guardian on your Release Form confirming Parental Consent to the terms of the Release Form. If you are under 18 on the date of your application, you need to bring in with you to the Open Auditions a copy of the Application Terms and Conditions, with a validly executed Parental Consent, which can be found at the end of the Application Terms and Conditions.

What ID can I bring and what if I do not have photo ID?
Where possible please bring your passport or photo driving licence. If you do not have photo ID, you must bring documentation that has your name and birth date on it such as a Birth Certificate or Social Security Card. In the event that you attend the audition without a form of ID, we reserve the right to ask for further proof of your identity before you can proceed through the contest.

If I am auditioning as a duo, should we register separately or together?
If you are auditioning as a duo, you only need to register once with one primary contact for you both. When you get your "Audition Invite" emailed to you before your audition, there will be a link to a Release Form. Please print out 2 copies of the release form and fill out one each and bring them with you to your audition. If one of you is under 18, you must get your Release Form signed by a parent or legal guardian. Please note that if you audition as a duo we reserve the right to only take only one of you through to the next stage of the competition.

Will there be more audition cities announced?
At the moment Open Auditions are only taking place in the cities listed on the Audition application page on the dates shown. If you want to attend the open auditions, you must register and travel to one of the audition cities. If you are unable to attend an open audition, please send us a DVD. Please note, this will not guarantee you an audition. Please keep an eye on the website for any changes that may be announced.

When will I receive my Audition Invite?

How can I cancel my audition?

I am under 18, do I need to have a parent or guardian with me at my audition?
No, but you must have a release form with you signed by a parent or legal guardian, and a contact number for them. You are allowed to bring one parent/guardian if you are aged 16- 17 if you want to. You will however need an adult with you if you make it through to the call back stage.

What do I need to prepare for my audition?
All details regarding the audition process will be sent to you with your audition invite.

If I am selected for a call back, when will they be?
