The new talent cometh!
Simon Cowell, Antonio "L.A." Reid, and other potential judge contenders weren't in attendance at the audition event, but approximately 15,000 potential X-Factor stars DID stop by to show off their skillz!
Here's what executive producer Rob Wade, who WAS in attendance, had to say about the auditions:
"It's intangible. It's something you feel in your heart. When you see somebody sing, that's what it is, and you and I would have the same opinion about that. You'll see it on stage and be like, 'Wow, that person's got the X factor.'"
Auditions will continue in Miami, New Jersey, Seattle, Chicago, and Dallas.
Good luck, potential X-Factorials!
