X Factor 2013: First trailer showing the judges in action

X Factor has released the very first trailer for season ten showing the judges back in action.

The one-minute promo opens with an unidentified woman singing in the garden while hanging out her washing. Her singing is just so amazing the whole neighbourhood turns out to watch her… then we see she started her journey in an audition room in front of just four judges.

Host Dermot O'Leary can be heard saying: "To win over the nation first they need to win the room."

Watch the trailer below:

That's a reference to this year's audition twist which saw hopefuls having to successfully audition in an intimate room in front of Gary Barlow, Nicole Scherzinger, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh before having to successfully do it all over again in front of thousands at an arena.

Double the pressure, then.

The trailer was released the day after the judges began filming the boot camp stage of the competition in London, where they'll learn their categories and then whizz their contestants around the world for judges' houses.

It's been a big week for X Factor news: it kicked off a few days ago when Louis announced he wouldn't be returning to the show next year as he'd prefer to concentrate on his other projects.

Well, he has been there for the past decade - since show one! - so we don't blame him.

Also this week we've seen last year's winner James Arthur confirming details for his second single, the follow up to the million-selling winners' track 'Impossible'. Meanwhile, last year's runner-up Jahmene Douglas found success with his debut solo album Love Never Fails which hit number one in the album chart.
