X Factor singers allowed greater creativity?

Singers who appear on the show will have the chance to sing numbers that they have penned themselves.
Great deals on musical instruments
There's a fresh development put in place for The X Factor that will be wheeled out for its next season, due to kick into action this weekend.

Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and Tulisa Contostavlos are all going to be coming back as full-time judges for the series, with one-time Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger a new addition for this year.

But also new is the fact that the singers who appear on the show will have the chance to sing numbers that they have penned themselves. It's a move many music instrument players will no doubt approve of.

Past X Factor contestants include the Gotta Be You boy band One Direction, Heart Skips A Beat singer Olly Murs and Run For Your Life crooner Matt Cardle.

Meanwhile, in past years the oldest category on the programme was open to singers who were not part of a group was for those aged 25 years or older – but this year that group will contain performers aged 28 or older.
