    DescriptionThousands of aspiring young popstars have already flocked to auditions all over the country, but only one will make it to the big time. This official book follows hundreds of hopefuls as they are whittled down on camera by a highly critical panel of music biz professionals. The remaining fifty are then put at the mercy of the viewing public who will vote them off, week by week, until there are just two finalists. Televised live from a major London venue, the final two will perform head to head. Later that evening, the result of the public vote will be revealed, and the winner will walk away in a blaze of publicity to start his or her new life as a superstar. Illustrated throughout with exclusive colour photos, this is the behind-the-scenes story of the TV event of the year.
