Singers line up for 'X Factor' auditions in Newark

As temperatures soared near 100 degrees, singers lined up and waited outside in Newark for a chance to audition for reality television show the "X Factor." Lorraine Salzano, of Belleville, was in line to audition and said that she came out despite the heat because most auditions are in Los Angeles.

The lines were growing today, but could be longer as auditions continue on Thursday, which may see even hotter temperatures.
