Looking for the X-Factor


Do you have the X-Factor? Simon Cowell is searching for the next global superstar and it could just be someone from right here in central Nebraska.

A crowd gathered at the Conestoga Mall in Grand Island Thursday evening for the local Audition Pass Contest, sponsored by our sister station KFXL Fox Nebraska.

Contestants are singing their hearts out, belting out tunes from Michael Jackson to Celine Dion, Carrie Underwood and more.

For some, the dream doesn't end here. Four acts will move on to national auditions in Denver, with a chance to become a singing star.

Auditions run through 7 p.m. For more, visit
