Fox TV announced that the audition at the Los Angeles Sports Arena will be held on March 27.

They will also be held in Miami; Newark, New Jersey; Seattle; Chicago, and Dallas.

The X Factor, based on Simon's UK series and starting on the Fox network this autumn, is open to both solo singers and vocal groups.

It allows a broader age range for contestants than American Idol, Cowell's previous home.

Singers who are 12 years old as of March 1 are eligible and there is no upper age limit. At stake is a $5m (€3.6m) recording contract.
