How does it work?

Registration
You MUST register and pick up your wristband the day prior to the audition.  The registration is simple – you can stop by anytime within 24 hours prior to the audition day – starting at 6 am.  If you plan on bringing family and friends to your audition they must register as well.

You MUST bring two (2) forms of ID to registration day that show proof of your age and a photograph (for example, a birth certificate and driver’s license or a birth certificate and a passport or a birth certificate and a school ID card).
Note:
Auditioners younger than 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.  Minors or those without a driver’s license who are auditioners or supporters of auditioners may use a school ID or acceptable substitute (such as a yearbook page that includes a printed name with photo AND a birth certificate matching the name).  If the minor is too young to have any form of photo ID, then that minor’s parent or guardian should present a photo ID and the child’s birth certificate that includes the parent’s name with the child’s name on the certificate.

Audition
On the day of the audition, you need to arrive at the venue before 8am. Please prepare a verse and a chorus of 3 songs without tracks or instruments. Pick your song choice wisely as it should represent you as an artist.  Whether you are a soloist or a vocal group, remember this is your time to shine, so make sure that you are well rehearsed and dressed to impress!

There will be a long wait so be sure to prepare for the day with suitable snacks, drinks and entertainment. Be sure to dress appropriately for the weather. For further information, please visit our website at http://www.fox.com/thexfactor.
Or call the toll-free audition hotline at: 855 345 5678.  If your questions aren’t answered by either of the previous two options please reply to this email with your questions.  Remember to sign up for audition updates at www.fox.com/thexfactor!

If successful, you will need to be available the next day.

Attached is audition information and a flyer that you can distribute or post!

We look forward to seeing you at the audition!

Kind Regards,

The X Factor Producers

One response to “‘X Factor’ to audition in Miami

  1. A little more on the disastrous X Factor Los Angeles auditions. It turns out the audition booths did not run out of golden tickets at the same time. Some booths ran out sooner than others. However, instead of doing the common sense thing and sharing the remaining tickets, they simply allowed people to continue to audition at booths that had no tickets available. Thus the only possible outcome at those booths was “No.”

    This was backed up by accounts from the seats where they could see who were getting tickets and who were not. At first, many were getting tickets. Then over time, less and less, until finally nobody was getting through.

    I feel sorry especially for the middle-aged people who went out to audition, thankful that Simon had given them a chance, only to end up a booths where they had no chance. Many still do not know what really happened there.

    Simon owes Los Angeles a redo. If not for this season, at least for next. The ones who registered are still in the computer so there’s no need to register again, and many kept their Sports Arena tickets. So let them come to a special audition and get the chance they never got.
