I do! I do! Ok, I don't have the cajones for it. But our midday girl, Michelle, does! She's totally going to Dallas to audition for Simon Cowell's new FOX show, The X Factor. That Dallas date is TBA for now, but you know Michelle and I are all over this. As soon as we get the info from FOX, we'll post it online here for you.
Here's what we know so far from the press release:

The exciting new competition series is looking for talent young and old alike – with no upper age limit. THE X FACTOR judges will travel the nation searching for undiscovered talent 12 years old or over – both solo artists and vocal groups – who are willing to brave the panel for a chance to make their dreams come true.
In a departure from other singing competition series, the first time a contestant auditions for the judges, he/she will do so in front of an audience of thousands – raising the stakes and increasing the pressure to impress not only the judges, but also a potential legion of fans. This will be the ultimate test to prove they have the vocal ability, charisma and stage presence that it takes to become a global superstar and win an unprecedented $5 million recording contract with Syco/Sony Music.
