Soooo The X Factor is coming to Austin…there’s that.

The show is touring the country in search of the next star and Austin is their first stop! You have the chance to be part of the live studio audience, for FREE. The show will be hitting Austin Thursday, May 24 and Friday the 25th at 1 & 6 p.m. at the Frank Erwin Center. All you have to do is sign up and they will email you when the tickets are released. So sign up now, RIGHT NOW, so you don’t miss the chance to watch as people take their best shot to not have Simon Cowell make fun of them. Good luck.

Guest judges for this season are the always fantastic, hot-mess-of-a-pop-star, but ceaselessly interesting, Britney Spears, and singer/actress Demi Lovato. These two brave souls will be joining Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid to judge this season’s next batch of stars.

You only have four chances to see this in Austin. Miss traffic and a super long line by signing up for the 1 p.m. show. This will be fun for everyone. Get your family out to hear some music, root for people you may or may not know and take part in this rare and unique opportunity to celebrate our city’s talent.
