THE X FACTOR...Virtual auditions! Simon Cowell scours for Talent!

If you're a performer, who was unable to attend open call auditions for  - X FACTOR - Simon Cowell is reaching out "virtually".

For example, X FACTOR  producers have whipped up a handful of state-of-the art audition booths, that will be installed at shopping malls in out-of-the-way communities, to facilitate auditions for a posse of singers chomping-at-the-bit to be "discovered".

At stake?

A $5 million-dollar recording contract!

"We're extending auditions to six more cities," beamed the host of the upcoming entertainment show - styled after American Idol - on Fox TV.

Potential contestants who reside in neighborhoods around the country near - Anchorage, Denver, Honolulu, Kansas City, Phoenix, and  Nashville - just lucked out!

"America has the best talent in the world and we're looking for the best of the best. We believe the next global superstar is out there waiting to be discovered," a spokesperson at Fox beamed.

"We think MyStudio is a brilliant way to audition for those people who haven't been able to make it to the open calls," Cowell underscored at a press conference in recent days.

Throughout April - anyone 12 years of age or older (solo artists  & vocal groups) - can use the nifty booths to record their auditions.
