About The X Factor


The X Factor is a television show franchise originating in the United Kingdom, where it was devised as a replacement for Pop Idol. It is a singing competition, now held in various countries, which pits contestants against each other. These contestants are aspiring pop singers drawn from public auditions.  The "X Factor" of the title refers to the indefinable "something" that makes for star quality. The prize is usually a recording contract (in addition to the publicity that appearance in the later stages of the show itself generates, not only for the winner but also for other highly ranked contestants). The format creator is Simon Cowell who also judges and mentors on the UK series and is to appear in the same role on the US series as well. It premiered on FOX on September 21, 2011. The first season winner was Melanie Amaro. Britney Spears and Demi Lovato will be joining Season 2 as judges. Tate Stevens was the winner of Season 2. The current season judges are Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio.
