X Factor Auditions
Simon Cowell is bringing X Factor to the US and auditions are coming up quickly. The ‘X Factor’ is offering up the largest prize ever for a reality TV talent show…. $5 million. Since the crowds expected to tryout for The X Factor are supposed to just as huge as the grand prize, auditions are scheduled for large venues such as arenas.
The talent search will kick off in Los Angeles on 3/23/2011 at the Los Angeles Sports Arena and continue on to Miami, Seattle, New Jersey, Chicago and Dallas.
The competition is open to individuals and groups 12 years of age and older. Simon Cowell stated “The auditions are open to anyone who can sing” and describes the reality talent competition as a ‘singing competition with a twist’.
Another twist to the ‘X Factor’ may be voting by FaceBook. The show is negotiating with FaceBook to get a voting platform online before the show starts. The FaceBook voting ill be free in the U.S. and delivered through a FaceBook App. Fans in the UK will have to pay to cast their FB votes for their fave contestants.
