Cowell widens audition process for 'The X Factor'
April 8, 2011 - 7:11am

NEW YORK(AP) – Simon Cowell wants to make sure he finds the most talented singer for the U.S. debut of "The X Factor." That's why he's set up audition studios in Nashville, Tenn.; Anchorage, Alaska; Kansas City, Kan.; and Denver throughout April.

Those invited to the booths to sing must be at least 12 years old and can be solo artists or vocal groups. Each audition will be sent to the show's producers, and those selected will take part in callbacks.

So far, Cowell says he and producers are pleased with the audition process. Thousands turned out in Miami on Thursday, and Gloria Estefan made an appearance to get the crowd even more excited.

Cowell will be joined on the judges' panel by Antonio "L.A." Reid, former chairman of Island Def Jam Music.
