Sneak Peek! New Way to Audition for 'X Factor'

"Extra's" Terri Seymour unveils at a revolutionary new audition process for the US version of the "X-Factor"!

MyStudio recording booths will be set-up in smaller cities across America and will allow thousands of people in more non-traditional regions, who may not be able to attend the "cattle call" auditions, a unique opportunity to audition for the show.

Seymour spoke with Anna Madrid, VP Business Development for MyStudio, who said "X-Factor" creator Simon Cowell "is literally breaking the mold on the way to audition for television."

Madrid continued, "The idea with having the studios and the whole thought process behind our company is to be able to reach parts of the country that are not traditionally tapped into by typically TV production and opening auditions to a greater pool of people. There's a lot of untapped talent in those areas and this was especially an attractive area for 'X-Factor' to reach into."

Hopefuls will record their audition in a professional recording studio. Each person will have approximately two minutes to create an a cappella music recording, including 30 seconds at the beginning to state why they think they have the "X Factor." Users will be notified via email to let them know whether they've been eliminated or made it to the next round of auditions.
