Ready, set, upload.
For one week, beginning today through June 9, those wishing to audition for "The X Factor" can upload their auditions on YouTube, the show and its partner Pepsi announced.
Solo artists and vocal groups 12 years of age and older can submit a video of an a capella performance no longer than 2 minutes with a 30 second introduction explaining why they should be allowed to appear on "X Factor." Participants will be up for a chance to win a $5 million recording contract with Syco/Sony Music.
“I’m really happy we are launching auditions through YouTube,” said the show's creator Simon Cowell in a press release. “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.”
Auditions have been held around the country, and in April aspiring contestants were able to record auditions in special booths set up in several cities around the country.
The show is set to premiere this fall on Fox.
