FOX 66, and Banana 101.5 proudly present FOX66’s The X Factor Audition Pass Contest. One talented local singer or group will win a trip to the Chicago X Factor Auditions, a front of the line pass, and a guaranteed audition in front of The X Factor producers. Registrations are taking place now at wsmh.com/theXfactor and will remain open until Wednesday, April 6th or when 66 acts have registered.

Auditions are open to both soloist and vocal groups aged 12 or older and will take place Saturday April 9th, at Courtland Center in Burton from noon-3p. All are welcome to watch the competition but auditions are limited to the first 66 soloists/groups to register.

The X Factor, the award-winning international phenomenon created and executive produced by Simon Cowell, makes its highly anticipated stateside debut this fall on FOX66! “I like the idea that a 12-year-old on this show can compete with an older singer and a singing group,” said Cowell. “I’ve never believed there should be a cut-off age for talent, and we are going to put our money where our mouths are with the $5 million recording contract. I’m doing this show in America because I genuinely believe we can find a superstar.”

FOX66’s The X Factor Audition Pass Contest is sponsored by Courtland Center, Planet Fitness and Chasse Ballroom & Latin Dance Studio. To sign up your act visit Fox 66!
