Simon Cowell’s “The X Factor” is coming to Dallas TX. Have you got “it”? The highly anticipated and hyped singing competition called The X Factor has announced the dates, location and audition information for singing star wannabe’s on the X Factor Facebook page. The X Factor makes it debut on Fox 50 this fall.
The Dallas Convention Center will host auditions for X Factor hopefuls on Thursday, May 26th. Registration for The X Factor begins on Wednesday, May 25th at 6:00 a.m. at the Dallas Convention Center, located at 650 South Griffin Street in Dallas Texas.
Singers and vocal groups 12 years of age or older as of March 1, 2011, who are legal U.S. citizens or eligible to work in the U.S. and do not currently have a music recording contract are qualified to audition. Some restrictions apply.
Beginning at 6 a.m. Wednesday, May 25, wristbands will be distributed until approximately 6 a.m. on Thursday, May 26. Auditioners will not be allowed to camp out. Once auditioners receive their wristbands, they will be asked to return to the Dallas Convention Center by 8:00 AM on Thursday, May 26. Bringing valid legal photo identification is required for all applicants.
Auditioners under the age of 18 years old must be accompanied by his/her parent or legal guardian. Auditioning for Simon Cowell’s brand new show The X Factor in Dallas is a great opportunity, with the winner of the competition receiving a prize of a $5 million music recording contract. X Factor hopefuls have got be very good, as Simon has said in the many commercials hyping the new show.
Singing soloists and vocal groups are eligible to audition for The X Factor, with a very wide range of eligible ages from 12 years old and absolutely no upper age limit. Once you’ve signed up to audition for The X Factor, start getting ready for what could be the biggest day of your life.
Applicants wanting to know how to audition for The X Factor should understand that the registration process must be done in person. The two most important aspects of auditioning for The X Factor are to first collect the wristband the day prior to your audition, wear the wristband continuously (don’t take off the wristband) and wear your wristband to your audition. Auditioners must be a U.S. citizen and have a valid government-issued ID, and a parent or legal guardian must be present with you if you are under 18 – no exceptions.
Secondly, be sure to arrive prior to 8 a.m. on the day of your audition. Be prepared to wait for long periods of time, as the lines on both registration/audition days will likely be very long. Bring your wristband, valid picture ID, snacks, drinks and wear the right kind of clothing for your audition (be aware of weather changes).
In order to make your audition stand out from the rest, be extremely careful about song choice. You will be singing without backup music for your audition, so pick songs that work best with your vocal range and singing abilities that allow you and your voice to shine above everyone else auditioning. To be fully prepared to knock the socks off The X Factor producers and decision makers, pick a verse and chorus from three different songs to sing that showcase your singing talent best.
The X Factor is looking for the next American music sensation, so if you want to be a star, you need to look like one for your audition. Therefore, dress to impress, showing off your personal/unique style – representing who you truly are inside and out, and how you see yourself.
Choose your outfit wisely, including hairstyle, makeup, shoes and accessories – the whole package counts. Shine above and beyond all the other applicants hoping to sing for their lives on The X Factor – be true to yourself and who you truly are and let the real you shine through.
The X Factor singing competition and audition phase will be different from others, like American Idol, in that audition contestants will not only perform in front of X Factor judges but also in front of an audience of thousands of potential fans. Auditioning for The X Factor will be what might be called the ultimate test of proving audition contestants have got “it” – vocal ability, stage presence and the charisma necessary to become a superstar around the world.
THE X FACTOR is produced by Syco Television and FremantleMedia North America. Simon Cowell, Rob Wade and Siobhan Greene are executive producers for Syco Television. Cecile Frot-Coutaz, Richard Holloway and Andrew Llinares serve as executive producers for FremantleMedia North America.
