'X Factor': $5 Million Prize for Winner!

More details are emerging about the new American version of The X Factor!

Last night, Simon Cowell appeared in a Super Bowl ad for the show, which is slated to debut this fall. Nationwide auditions begin in late March!

It was also announced today that the winner will take home a recording contract worth $5 million.

“I like the idea that a 12-year-old on this show can compete with an older singer and a singing group,” Simon said in a statement. “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.”

Anyone 12 and older can audition, and both solo artists and groups are eligible. Learn more about how to audition over at Fox.com!

    CHERYL COLE better be on the panel!

  • Dubya Bush

    Oh, Simon. You have been sorely missed. BTW, Cheryl Cole needs to stay her ass in Britain. This is the U.S. version. A one hit wonder from the U.S. would be more famous here than her.

    She was conflicted of her crime. The witnesses backed up the womans version of events in court. For some strange reason she got of on the racist charge even know witnesses said she was racist as well. She is a violent chav and once this story comes out in America she is will be finished. Americans don’t like racist violent criminals.

    @Steve: TO ALL YOU HATERS. CHERYL SLAPPED THE LAW STUDENT AFTER SHE WAS VIOLENTLY GRABBED AND PULL BACK BY THE LAW STUDENT. ‘CHERYL IS AWESOME’
