The X Factor Unveils Dates And Venues For The $5 Million Auditions

Auditions for the highly anticipated singing competition THE X FACTOR are set to begin on Sunday, March 27 in Los Angeles, CA at the L.A. Sports Arena. The search for the next global superstar will continue in Miami, FL on Thursday, April 7; Newark, NJ on Thursday, April 14; Seattle, WA on Wednesday, April 20; Chicago, IL on Wednesday, April 27; and concludes in Dallas, TX on Thursday, May 26.

The exciting new competition series is looking for talent young and old alike – with no upper age limit. THE X FACTOR judges will travel the nation searching for undiscovered talent 12 years old or over – both solo artists and vocal groups – who are willing to brave the panel for a chance to make their dreams come true.

In a departure from other singing competition series, the first time a contestant auditions for the judges, he/she will do so in front of an audience of thousands – raising the stakes and increasing the pressure to impress not only the judges, but also a potential legion of fans. This will be the ultimate test to prove they have the vocal ability, charisma and stage presence that it takes to become a global superstar and win an unprecedented $5 million recording contract with Syco/Sony Music.

THE X FACTOR audition cities, dates and venue information are as follows:

Los Angeles, CA Sunday, March 27 L.A. Sports Arena
Miami, FL Thursday, April 7 BankUnited Center
Newark, NJ Thursday, April 14 Prudential Center
Seattle, WA Wednesday, April 20 Key Arena
Chicago, IL Wednesday, April 27 Sears Centre Arena
Dallas, TX Thursday, May 26 Dallas Convention Center

Wristbands must be obtained from the venue the day prior to auditions. Click on the city name above for additional audition details, including how to obtain your wristband and eligibility requirements.

During the open auditions, The X Factor Hotline (1-855-345-5678) will be updated with relevant audition details.

Hopefuls should sign up for Audition Information alerts now and check back regularly for updated information, rules and registration forms.

    Simon, You are the best!!! I know alot of people are commenting on facebook instead of here. Just know you are helping to make alot of peoples dream come true, just have the chance to audition. I am so grateful and have been looking forward to this since you announced it over the summer. Your creativity is incredible, X facotr will be the greatest. Idol is good, but totally not the same without you. I couldn’t believe some of the incredible talent they cut lastnight when I watched it. X factor is going to blow it away, because of you and your intense honesty and eye and ear for true talent. Looking foward to meeting you and I know we will meet when I’m in the finals!!! not really Racheal..I gotta stay undercover until discovered!!! Me !!

    Hey Simon, i was just wondering,or if anybody else knows. Are the auditions the same as American Idol, you have to audition in front of the producers,then the ex-producers then in front of the judges, or when everybody is waiting at the arena or stadium,thats the audition with all the people in the audience? im just wondering

    Hi Mr. Simon, I am honored to be one of the participants in the X Factor and the opportunity that this show is giving to true talent in the USA. You are right! there is a lot of undiscovered talent here and the fact that there is no age limit has oppened the door to so many. To all participants I say just bring the best of you. When I saw your video anouncing the show, I thought that you were talking to me! You asked, Have you got it? and again I will tell you, sit down and listen and be ready because for your’s and my sake, I am Fantastic!

    I want to see Paula back!!! Not because I think Simon and her should be together, (even though it seems like they would be great for one another) but because I think she brings a certain aspect to T.V. and music that no one else dose. She brings out the best in a lot of people and keeps Simon on his toes ;-) . Lord knows Simon is the best for scouting and honesty. Then… I have no opinion for who else could be a judge. What’s Sharon Osbourne up to these days? She was a great judge before on X Factor.

I originally wanted to try out for American Idol, but I was never old enough to be on it. I am currently 15 (will turn sixteen in the summer) and I am excited for X Factor! For an idea of what I sound like, my voice is very similar to that of Christina Aguilera. No laughing, it’s true. I will show the world that young people like me can really be the next big thing!

Now finally she has a chance to be in front of the audience and try out for X-Factor and still gets to see Simon (I was so upset when he left American Idol) but now not only does my daughter get her chance to try out for another (better) show, she and I can meet Simon! Well maybe I mean I hope they let the parents in. If not I’ll buy a ticket for the audience. I know my little girl will do me proud and I am sure Simon will love her singing. I hope. And if she doesn’t make it here, well she can still go for Idol next year, and keep returning for X-Factor auditions. I also have an 11 year old already gearing up to trying out next season! We have a musical family. LOL!

    Seeing all these people that are so sure of themselves is prety nervewracking for a 12 year old girl…all I want is to be able to sing for Simon. He’s a natural born critic who KNOWS who’s got it and who doesn’t. That’s the part I want to feel. The nerves of getting up and performing for America (UK?) and especially those judges. Can’t wait!

    If it’s gonna be like American Idol, and I think it is, organizationally I mean. You have to have two forms of ID and be there the day before to get a wrist band. Ticket info for televised auditions isn’t there yet but if you want to go to the first auditions, just get a band and then back out. There are probably gonna be a few rounds of auditions before the real judges, that’s how Idol was last year in Millwaukee anyways. It might all be different though. Hope that helps you :)

    Hey Simon, I am a 49 – I teach Social Studies in Palm Beach County (16years). I have been singing since I was 6. I’m a singer songwrtier and have my on all originals band “Robert Goodman Band” aka RGB. We play all over South Florida. though I came close to deals in my 20′s with Atlantic and SBK Records, it never came to be. However, I never stopped writing and singing as it is my passion. I do love teaching, it allows me to make a real difference in peoples lives and it touches my heart. I would like to bring that passion for teaching and singing to the stage…I have a vocie that connects and soul that wants too. Just give me the chance to make it to the TV Stage Auditon – I know at my age this may be my last chance to get on the WORLD STAGE. I will be in Miami April 6th – I hope to meet you then.
    SIMON- JUST A SIDE NOTE: someone from your past at Atlantic Record “Steve Bernstein” saw me perform last year at one of my gigs and was interested in doing a soul project with me, he said I reminded him of Daryl Hall. I have an eclectic voice..I was shaped by the Beatles and soul/gospell music at a very young age! See you in Miami- Warm regards Robert Goodman

    Simon, sort your judges line up out! I’m a Marketing Director in the U.K. and I have to tell you, you are on the cusp of terrible P.R.
    Sort out the Cheryl Cole situation before it backfires.
    If you want her, appoint her, if not, let her return here. However if I were her adviser I would tell her to walk away with a massive P.R. blitz on ‘Why I left the X-Factor’.
    At the moment she has been pictured in LA without make-up looking tainted. If this goes on any longer we won’t want her in the U.K. as she will be the US reject who tried but didn’t succeed!

Waiting in line 2 days and to be expected to look and sound good… I suspect you already have your contestants as we all know the nepotism, friends of friends world is all that show biz is about but so you can get some publicity for this… you are really asking too much of people… it is not kind AT ALL. At least if we wait in line on day 1, we should get an appointment time for the next day… or at least a window of time to come back. Not just say that the line opens at 6am and be prepared to wait as it will be long, bring snacks and drinks and be prepared to wait as it will be a long day! BS. We all know agent’s clients, friends, etc. DO NOT GO THROUGH THIS. People are spending time, energy and money on this and you don’t really seem to take that into consideration. I was thinking of doing this but it sounds like it will truly be a waste of time as it sounds like you really aren’t looking for any talent. If you were, you would treat people better. Shame.

    I think the people complaining just aren’t committed enough to become a star. I mean come on. This is a spectacular opportunity! If I have to wait in line for a few hours I’d be so willing just to sing in front of Simon Cowell. Maybe it’s cuz I’ve dreamed about it forever. So those who complain about not getting first class treatment will hopefully not show up and give those of us who are committed a better chance at 5 MILLION DOLLARS!

    Hi. I am going to the Audition in Seattle WA. I am 12 years old and a very very good singer. I have competed in many different talent shows, and have won them all. If I make the Auditoin, does that mean I will be able to go to L.A. and be in the tv show the X factor? Or will I have to go to multiple auditions? Im so excited and I cant wait for the Seattle audtions.

I’m only 14 and there will be more auditions for me in the future. Needless to say…Mom’s gonna make an appointment with her doctor this week. She can’t live with this anxiety any longer!

    I just got back from Newark and I’m more than sorry to tell you that even though you may get in line first, pre-dawn, and wait 8+ hours, its random where they seat you and then call your section – the first sections got most of the tickets and by 3pm 95% were gone, making thousands audition until past 9pm for NOTHING. The first auditions were about 3 minutes long and the later ones, like mine, were literally under 15 seconds! The judges called in to screen the masses were low-level producers, not music executives. This is the straight up, hard,cold truth. Some judges gave all Yeses and others gave all NOs because some had golden tickets left and others ran out of their quota. This after being left to wait 8-12 hrs/day for two days straight. Then even if you get passed thru, you come back the next day, not to be judged by Simon’s panel. I heard voices like you would not believe and they were dismissed because they weren’t seated early. It was a cattle call all right – the performers were treated like animals. Shame on this whole smarmy, exploitative production.

    I am not angry because i know i have a gold mine singer, writer and dancer in my hands My daughter auditioned and called me and said mommy, i can hear these girls singing very nice and they were eliminated, even the workers that were outside of the room where they were singing stated to their astonishment that they couldn’t believe that these talented girls were eliminated. My daughter has such an extraordinary voice, awesome, she sings anything from gospel, R&B, Rock anything and even Selena and salsa in other words spanish also. It was also stated that they were looking for a lady Gaga who isn’t at all so great and not even close to what my daughter sounds like. My daughter gives people chills, and they cry when they hear the songs my daughter writes b/c she writes from her heart and the truth. This is going to be exposed to the media, all of them for false advertisement and discrimination. I cannot understand what in the world you people are looking for cause its not singers. My daughter said to me yesterday she likes simon. Please. Something is going on and has to be expose or this show has to go. Liars sorry to say. I pray for that lady to overcome this and her panic and anxiety attacks. Me I am fine because i know what i got and she will get discovered.
