<p><span></span>The <em>X Factor </em>has officially kicked off!</p>
Simon Cowell's show scored a bigger turnout than any other talent show audition ever to be held in Los Angeles.
There was gridlock on the freeway and people sleeping overnight on the street hoping for their chance to be chosen for the show. By 9 AM 18,000 people and counting lined up for the first rounds of auditions.
On Sunday, March 27 "the auditionees started from ages 12 all the way to people into their eighties or nineties," an eyewitness tells Life & Style of the event. The giant parking lot at the LA sports arena was packed full of people in their bid for the 5million dollar prize!
The X Factor premieres on Fox this fall.
