Dozens of hopefuls, each with the voice of an angel, queued patiently as talent scouts from the hit TV show put them through their paces in Drake Circus Shopping Centre.
The auditions roadshow had stopped off in Plymouth to video the city’s best singing talent.
X Factor bosses will now scrutinise the audition tapes and decide who to invite to croon in front of the famous panel of judges when the 14th series of the show hits our screens later in 2017.
From there it could be on to boot camp, judges houses, live shows and world domination for one of the Plymouth performers.
And there were so many talented singers to choose from.
Mum-of-three Lisa Mildren (below with Ian Stuart), age 36 and from Saltash, had decided it was time to unleash her hidden diva.
She was planning a tilt at How Do I Live by LeAnn Rimes.
“One of my favourites,” she said. “I’d auditioned on-line before, but never heard anything, so thought I’d come along to this. I hope I get through.
“I’ve done karaoke in pubs and I’m not too bad.
“And I’m a big fan of Little Mix so maybe I could be the fifth one.”
Lisa’s friend Ian Stuart, aged 39 from Tavistock, wasn’t going to take part, however.
