One Direction is getting tons of invitations for personal appearances now that the band has become a massive hit around the world. But will the group make time for invitation to visit an “X Factor” U.S. audition?
A cheeky but somewhat serious Twitter message from “The X Factor” U.S. indicates that the invitation has gone out to at least one member of One Direction: Harry Styles.
On March 21, 2012, “The X Factor” U.S. tweeted this message after news broke about One Direction being the first U.K. group to have its first album debut at No. 1 in the U.S
“@Harry_Styles we’re still waiting to hear which audition city you want to come visit us at 😉 After this news we owe you a jump high five!”
“X Factor” auditions for 2012 are currently under way in the U.K. and the U.S.
It would seem natural for One Direction to visit the U.K. auditions first, but the group will not be able to attend the U.K. auditions in 2012 due to work commitments in North America.
As for the U.S. auditions in 2012, here are the possible dates that One Direction could attend:
May 1, 2012: Greensboro, North Carolina – Greensboro Coliseum
May 9, 2012: Providence, Rhode Island – Dunkin’ Donuts Center
June 18, 2012: San Francisco, California – Cow Palace (auditions in front of judges)*
July 8, 2012: Greensboro, North Carolina – Greensboro Coliseum (auditions in front of judges)*
July 9, 2012: Greensboro, North Carolina – Greensboro Coliseum (auditions in front of judges)*
*(Only if a One Direction concert tour date is not added here.)
The judges do not attend open-call auditions, so it would make more sense for One Direction to go to any of the auditions where Cowell will be at, namely in San Francisco on June 18 or in Greensboro on July 8 and July 9. If anyone can make a One Direction “X Factor” audition visit happen, Cowell can.Source: Examiner.Com
