“The X Factor” is now offering free tickets to its upcoming audition shows at Nassau Coliseum from June 19 to 21.

The shows will feature the full judging panel – Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato and new judges Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio – evaluating those singers who received “golden tickets” from the open call that drew 16,000 contestants at the Coliseum in April.

There will be two separate sessions each day, starting at 1 p.m. and 5:45 p.m., and tickets for each session are now available online at Only those 12 and older can attend because the auditions will be filmed for inclusion in the show’s upcoming fall season.
