    The award-winning international phenomenon THE X FACTOR is back. In Season Three of the hit competition series hosted by Mario Lopez, THE X FACTOR judges will travel the nation searching for talent 12 years old or over -- both solo artists and vocal groups -- who are willing to brave the panel for a chance to make their dreams of becoming a superstar come true. Auditions for THE X FACTOR were held this spring in Los Angeles, CA; Charleston, SC; New Orleans, LA; Long Island, NY; and Denver, CO.
    Contestants will audition in front of THE X FACTOR judges, including Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland, Paulina Rubio, and an audience of thousands. This will be the ultimate test to prove they have the vocal ability, charisma and stage presence it takes to become a global superstar or breakout music act and win a recording contract with Syco/Sony Music.
    Those contestants who survive the first auditions will be divided into four categories: Boys, Girls, Over 25s and Groups. Each category will be mentored by one of the show's judges. Not only is it a competition between the hopefuls to stake their claim for the coveted win, but it's also a showdown among the judges as to whose acts will dominate the competition and make it to the finals. The judges may have their say in how the competition progresses, but it will be up to America to decide who ultimately has THE X FACTOR.

  • Jordan Peters
    Jordan Peters 21 day ago +4

    Simon hates Motown? Reason number 368 as to why I will never understand the respect that he gets. I do have a high number of reasons I do understand it but I still conclude that he is overvalued by his audience as a talent scout.

    Simons comment about hating the song was so rude especially because that probably made them feel bad for singing it if he wasn't enjoying it the whole time.

    Talented, definitely. They did great job but this isn't even close to being original.
    The whole thing was taken from Bruno Mars' tribute to Amy Winehouse, including the dance break.

    Here's another contestant (s) who prove Simon is just an asshole for his lousy and assinin comment.
    If Simon we're on the other end of the stick, I believe he would commit Hari Kari if anyone made such derrogatory
