'Bigger & Better Than Anything You've Seen Before' - X-Factor USA Coming This Fall
The X-Factor is coming this Fall...to America! Yes, we all knew this was coming but this is the first bit of SERIOUS promo we've seen to date, other than the city promos the surfaced earlier this winter. In this video we have Simon Cowell talking about the concept behind the show, who's eligible to audtion, blah-di-blah-blah-blah. Everything anyone who's ever watched the UK version already knows. What we REALLY want to know - who are the judges? Who's the host? No word on either just yet.
What we do know - auditions commence in Los Angeles on March 27th, traveling across America to New York, Miami, Dallas, Chicago and Seattle. The grand prize? A $5 million recording contract with Sony Music. That's pretty huge. Having watched this past season of the UK version, I have to say I'm really excited. It's completely different from American Idol and I think that's what we need right now. Check out Simon's video below and make sure you follow X-Factor USA on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news and for more information on how to audition. Are you excited for The X-Factor?
