Just can’t wait until tomorrow night’s premiere of The X Factor? Neither can we. Thankfully, however, we have the internet and behind-the-scenes videos like one recently posted by a member of the X Factor audience showing a Los Angeles audition.

The video’s YouTube description says the 41 seconds of footage come from Day 3 of the LA audition. “The reason it is all crazy at the end,” the poster explains, “is because some lady made me put my phone down because you aren’t suppose to record the auditions!” Thank goodness she didn’t get to our inside connection sooner!  

From what we can see, the audition was a hit with the singer’s acoustic version of Selena Gomez’s “Come & Get It” setting the whole audience a-sway. And there, way up in the front are judges Kelly Rowland, Simon Cowell, and Demi Lovato enjoying the show (we’re guessing fourth judge, Paulina Rubio, didn’t quite make the frame sitting on the far right). It probably didn’t hurt that Selena is one of Dems’s besties from back in the Barney the Magic Dinosaur days.

Unfortunately, the video ends before we get to see if the singer makes it past auditions. Guess we’ll just have to tune in and see tomorrow night!
