Do you, a friend or a family member have what it takes to become a global superstar? I’m looking for the next singing sensation, someone with that special something – ‘The X Factor.’

The X Factor is my new show launching this Fall on Fox. It’s a make-it-or-break-it singing competition, and this time there are no restrictions. Solo singers, vocal groups and anyone over the age of 12 have the chance to win a $5 million recording deal with Sony Music. There’s NO upper age limit!

If you think you’ve got what it takes, we encourage you to audition. The search starts in Los Angeles on March 27th, and then continues on to Miami, Newark, Seattle, and Chicago, ending in Dallas. We are looking for people who know they can be superstars and have the raw talent to back it up.

Now is your chance, who knows, you or your group could walk away with a $5 million recording contract and a lifetime of stardom.

Below is a guide for your X FACTOR audition – everything you need to know to show up and be prepared.

Good luck,
Simon Cowell


• Sign up for audition information.
• Check out audition tips.
• Download rules and release forms.
• Get Simon’s advice on what not to sing.



There are TWO PARTS to the registration process:

  • FIRST: Collect your wristband the day before your audition. You pick up your wristband beginning at 6 AM the day before the audition day, until 6 AM the day of your audition. (You might be waiting in line for a bit, so plan accordingly). Also note that if you plan on bringing friends and family to support you, they have to register as well.
  • SECOND: Arrive before 8 AM on the day of your audition. It could be a long wait so dress weather appropriate and remember to bring snacks and drinks. All the info you need to get to the venue for auditions and wristband collection is listed below and available here. Everyone attending will need a government issued ID, and that includes friends and family.

Now that you know when and where to show up, make sure you’re prepared to WOW THE JUDGES!


Choose a verse and chorus from three different songs to sing without backing music – just vocals. You may not get to perform all three, but be prepared just in case! This isn’t the time to go with obvious choices. Pick songs that are unique to your personal talents and highlight what it is that you do best.


If you’re serious about being a star, you have to look the part. That means showing off your own personal style with an ensemble that represents how you see yourself as an artist. Make it good, this is your time to shine.


  • You have to be a U.S. citizen.
  • A parent or legal guardian must accompany anyone under the age of 18.
  • Bring Valid ID: Keep in mind, that ID is still required for minors. That can come in the form of a school ID or a yearbook page with a matching birth certificate. If the minor is too young for school identification, parents can present a photo ID and the child’s birth certificate so that names can be matched on the printed record.

If you pass this portion of the audition process, a member of the production team will contact you about what’s next.

Update: More X Factor Auditions Information!

Do you or someone you know have what it takes to win a $5 million recording contract? THE X FACTOR is creating more opportunities to find out — we’re extending our auditions to six more cities via cutting edge virtual audition stations in major shopping malls. If you live near Anchorage, Denver, Honolulu, Kansas City, Phoenix, or Nashville, this is your chance!

“We think MyStudio are a brilliant way to audition for those people who haven’t been able to make it to the open calls in the first six cities.” – Simon Cowell
America has the best talent in the world and we’re looking for the best of the best. We believe the next global superstar is out there waiting to be discovered, so for the first time ever we opened up audition booths in six additional cities, placing the specially built recording studios in designated malls.

Throughout the month of April, anyone 12 years old or over – both solo artists and vocal groups – can use the state-of-the-art studios to audio – and video-record their a cappella audition and state why they think they have what it takes to be a global superstar.

Everyone should turn out and have fun!

Andrew Llinares and Rob Wade
Executive Producers

P.S. The studios will remain open until Saturday, April 30.
