Join the audience of “The X Factor Okinawa Japan” Stage 2!



Stage 1 pre-auditions for “The X Factor Okinawa Japan” were held across Okinawa and will be broadcast on OTV (local broadcasting station) starting Saturday, Oct. 19.

On Sep. 14, Stage 1 auditions were held in Mihama, Chatan Town. Out of all the pre-audition venues, Mihama received the most non-Japanese participants. Around 10% of the 200 participants were from outside Japan.

Participants included military personnel and dependents, wanting to show off their musical talents by singing genres such as country and pop music, a cappella.

Audition results will be announced within one week. Stage 2 auditions will be held in front of a live audience at Tedako Hall in Urasoe City. Audience members are needed for the Stage 2 audition!



Many participants gathered at Mihama Media Station in front of Starbucks in Mihama’s American Village during the pre-audition.



The X Factor auditions atmosphere was surreal! There was a lot of great energy coming from so many talented artists of all ages and ethnic backgrounds who were all there for that one chance of a lifetime! A great deal of laughing, cheering, nervousness, and crying filled the air as emotions ran high. Ultimately everyone left with an experience gained as well lessons learned.
