Since Simon Cowell left American Idol, there has been a hole in America’s heart. Well that hole is gonna get filled up with all the Simon you can handle with his new show coming in the fall to Fox, The X-Factor! The x-Factor is the #1 show in the UK and now it’s looking for the next superstar here in America! The winner gets a $5 million recording contract and the competition is open to anyone 12 years old and up. Another cool thing is that it is not just for solo acts, you can be a solo act or in a group, how cool is that?! I talk with Andrew Llinares, Executive Producer, about the auditions.
