Think you have The X Factor? Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and the team behind Fox's new competition series have opened up the audition round online, the network announced Thursday. For one week only, from June 2-9, aspiring singers and vocal groups ages 12 and up can upload a two-minute audition tape to YouTube.com/theXFactorUSA for a chance to earn a shot at the show's $5 million recording contract prize. "I'm really happy we are launching auditions through YouTube," series creator and judge Cowell tells Us Weekly in a statement. "There is a lot of great talent online now, and especially young kids today are using YouTube to get themselves seen and heard. It's very easy, and it is $5 million after all! I'm very excited to see the auditions that might come through this." In order to be considered, users must upload a two-minute a cappella performance that includes a 30-second introduction and explanation as to why the entrant has "The X Factor." A select group of singers will have the chance to sing for the judges, including Cowell, Abdul, L.A. Reid and Nicole Scherzinger, at a later date. The X Factor premieres in September. (US Weekly)
