What's that you ask? The X-Factor is back already?...with audition dates for season 2. Big cities the show will hit beginning in March and ending in May will include Kansas City, Austin TX, San Francisco, and--this is the odd one--Greensboro NC. In addition to open calls, the show will also hold auditions via MyStudio HD recording studios across the country at various malls. And once again, Nashville, and specifically the Cool Springs Galleria in Franklin, will be one of the off-site locations. Those wanting to audition at the Nashville location can do so beginning March 1st.

Both Simon Cowell and record exec. LA Reid will return as judges/mentors for season 2 with other judges, and a host, yet to be determined.

Good Luck!
