'X Factor' Youtube auditions


 Can't make it an "X Factor" audtion but remain convinced that you should get on the show and make five million bucks? Then a solution: Youtube. In a novel tie with the website, "X Factor" is allowing contestants to submit their auditions. (I do believe other reality/comp shows have undertaken similar ventures, but the names escape me for the moment.) Here are the details, but time is running short - there is a one-week-only submission window, and it's coming up: 


THE X FACTOR, the highly anticipated singing competition series debuting this fall on FOX, is giving fans an additional opportunity to audition for the show online via YouTube. Beginning today through June 9 – for one week only – solo artists and vocal groups 12 years old and over will have the opportunity to submit an audition video exclusively on YouTube at YouTube auditions make it easier and more convenient than ever for hopefuls to audition for THE X FACTOR, giving more people the chance to become a global superstar or breakout music group and win a $5 million recording contract with Syco/Sony Music. Entrants should demonstrate their singing ability by performing a song a cappella. Videos are limited to two (2) minutes in length, including a 30-second introduction that explains who they are and why they have THE X FACTOR. Audition videos, which will be judged in a similar fashion to the live audition cities, will remain private and be viewable only by THE X FACTOR team. Auditioners selected to move forward in the competition will be offered the opportunity to continue their audition in front of the judges. Visit for more information and complete rules and regulations, as well as the full terms and conditions of the video submission process.
