What with everything surrounding Cheryl Cole and X Factor across the pond - not to mention all the Harry Potter mania we keep getting distracted by - we'd almost forgotten the British version of our favourite talent show was still making its way around the UK.
The gang rolled into London today, with Kelly Rowland, Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh all present and correct to check out the good, bad and downright weird that the capital has to offer.
With the auditions having to coincide with new head judge Gary (who today was wearing a rather fetching blue T-shirt) and Take That's current stadium tour, there seem to have been longer gaps than usual in between audition dates (hence our forgetting about them all.)
But back they were, with Tulisa doing what she does best in a thigh-grazing mini and towering heels.
And then there was Louis, smiling away.
