FOX announced the X Factor cattle call auditions to take place across the country in March, April and May.
Remember: This is the big cattle call! No judges necessary. The judges competition round will follow in front of live audiences across the country (At which time, they should have the new panel in place.)
I wish they were coming back to New England. I had so much fun sitting in the audience! Instead, X Factor season 3 will head to Los Angeles, Charleston, New Orleans, Long Island, and Denver.
