x factor jackpot to be 5 million dollars

Way to raise those stakes!

Simon Cowell, FOX, and the rest of the folks behind the upcoming U.S. X Factor have announced via press release that the winner of the competition series will receive a $5 million record deal!!!

This will be the "largest guaranteed prize in television history!" SO intense!

Auditions start on Mar. 27 at the L.A. Sports Arena, and they'll continue at TBD venues/dates in New York/New Jersey, Miami, Chicago, Seattle, and Dallas.

Here's what Simon had to say about it:

“I like the idea that a 12-year-old on this show can compete with an older singer and a singing group. I’ve never believed there should be a cut-off age for talent, and we are going to put our money where our mouths are with the $5 million recording contract. I’m doing this show in America because I genuinely believe we can find a superstar.”

We still can't get over it! A $5 million jackpot???

Maybe Perez should audition! Have U heard our rendition of I'm Too Sexy???

Ha!

Will U try out for the U.S. X Factor?

    YAAAWN, WHO CARESSS. 5 MIL DOESNT MEAN ANYTHING. THAT'S FOR THE ENTIRE RECORDING DEAL — PROMOS, PR, DESIGNERS, SONGWRITERS, MUSICIANS, ETC. AND IF YOU DONT SELL ENUFF TO COVER THE COSTS, THE AMOUNT GETS DEDUCTED FROM THE ADVANCE. COWELL IS AN IDIOT. GOOD MUSIC IS NOT DETERMINATE ON CONTRACT SIZE. WE SEE ALL THE EPIC FAILS WITH BIG NAME ARTISTS WHO CANT DO SHIT —>SHHH… XTINA!! NEXT.

    YES YES YES! I am so excited to try out!

    It's pretty stupid to let 12 year olds compete because after puberty their voices will change… not to mention that they likely are not mentally prepared for the stress of the industry and/or have overbearing stage parents.

    Simon himself said something similar when they did that American Juniors show, so I don't know what changed his mind.
