The X Factor Auditions in Miami

Enjoy singing in the shower? Or singing with friends? How about singing in front of a live studio audience? Simon Cowell’s The  X Factor, a new talent show, will be holding auditions at the Bank United Center, 1245 Dauer Drive, April 7.

Cowell’s singing competition welcomes solo and group singers competing for the $5 million dollar grand prize.Contestants must be at least 12-years-old by March 1, 2011,  legal US citizens (or eligible to work full-time), and without a current music recording contract.

“It’s worth a shot,” said Linda Alvarado, 18, a music education major at the Kendall Campus. “I am excited to sing in front of a live audience and get judged, as a performer it’s useful to know what you are good and bad at.”

‘The X Factor’ premiers on FOX in September while “American Idol” is off the air.
