Are you a solo singer? A girl group? duo? boy band? or a vocal group? Maybe you and your friends have always wanted to form a group or maybe you gave up on your dream of being a singer years ago? Well, now IS your time - it’s never too late to follow your dreams! The X Factor is headed to Denver in May and looking for the best talent in the Rocky Mountain region.

The competition is open to everyone that is 12 years old (as of January 1, 2013) and above, with no age cap. Any type of music works - pop, rock, rap, country, R&B, alternative, hip-hop… you name it!

The try outs themselves will be held at the Denver Coliseum on May 14th, 2013, but keep in mind there are some rules to follow for registration and participation.

You MUST register and pick up your wristband and ticket PRIOR to the audition. Registration opens 2 days prior to the audition day, May 12 and 13. Registration is 24 hrs a day, for those 2 days, leading up to your audition day beginning at 8am. Registration closes at 11am (NO EXCEPTIONS) on Audition Day. If you plan on bringing family and friends to your audition, they must register with you as well. (You must be at least 12 years of age by Jan 1, 2013 to audition)

ALL contestants MUST bring two (2) forms of ID to registration day - show proof of your age and a photograph (for example: birth certificate and driver's license or birth certificate and passport or birth certificate and school ID card).

You must be a US citizen and not currently under a recording contract.

Anyone younger than 18, attending the auditions (auditioning or not) must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. ALL legal Guardians MUST have a SIGNED and NOTARIZED Guardianship form at time of registration. Without this form your minor will NOT be allowed to audition!

Minors or those without a driver's license, who are auditioning OR supporters of those auditioning, may use a school ID or acceptable substitute (such as yearbook page that includes a printed name with photo AND a birth certificate matching the name). If the minor is too young to have any form of photo ID, then that minor's parent or guardian should present a photo ID and the child's birth certificate that includes the parent's name with the child's name on the certificate.

Check out the rules and eligibility ALL forms are available for download.

On the day of the audition, you need to arrive at the venue before 7am. Please prepare a verse and a chorus of 3 songs without tracks or instruments. Pick your song choice wisely as it should represent you as an artist. Whether you are a soloist or a vocal group, remember this is your time to shine, so make sure that you are well rehearsed and dressed to impress! Be prepared for a long day, and dress appropriately for the weather.
