THE $5 MILLION AUDITIONS - "THE X FACTOR" UNVEILS AUDITION DATES AND VENUES

THE SEARCH FOR A GLOBAL SUPERSTAR BEGINS SUNDAY, MARCH 27 IN LOS ANGELES AT THE L.A. SPORTS ARENA

MIAMI, NEW JERSEY, SEATTLE, CHICAGO AND DALLAS WILL ALSO HOST AUDITIONS THIS SPRING

SIGN UP NOW FOR AUDITION INFORMATION AT WWW.FOX.COM/THEXFACTOR

Auditions for the highly anticipated singing competition THE X FACTOR are set to begin on Sunday, March 27 in Los Angeles 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 Dallas, TX (date to be announced).

Interested solo artists and vocal groups should sign up now for audition information at www.fox.com/theXfactor.

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:
