Chronology
2011  

The X Factor is an Australian television reality music competition, based on the original UK series, to find new singing talent; the winner of which receives a recording contract with Sony Music Australia.[1] The third season premiered on the Seven Network on 29 August 2011.[2] Guy Sebastian and Ronan Keating were the only judges from the previous season who returned, while Natalie Bassingthwaighte and Mel B joined the judging panel as replacements for former judges, Natalie Imbruglia and Kyle Sandilands. Luke Jacobz also returned to present the show.[3]

The competition is split into several stages: auditions, bootcamp, home visits and live shows. Auditions in front of the show's producers took place throughout March and April 2011. The successful auditionees chosen by the producers were then invited back to the last set of auditions that took place in front of the judges and a live studio audience during May and June. After the auditions was bootcamp, where successful acts were split into four categories: Under 25 Boys (male soloists aged 14 to 24), Under 25 Girls (female soloists aged 14 to 24), Over-25s (soloists aged 25 and over) and Groups. Each judge was given a category to mentor and had to decide on their twelve acts after day two, and their six acts after day three. Special guest judges, including Wynter Gordon, Stephen Belafonte, Darren Hayes and The Veronicas, were brought in to help the judges decide their acts. Following bootcamp, was the home visits stage, where each of the judges reduced their six acts to three, with help from more guest judges, including Beyoncé, Melanie C, Jason Derülo, Good Charlotte and Leona Lewis. The live shows began on 19 September 2011.[4]

Judges

Mel B (left) and Natalie Bassingthwaighte (right) joined the judging panel as replacements for Kyle Sandilands and Natalie Imbruglia.

On 16 March 2011, judge Kyle Sandilands announced on his breakfast radio show, Kyle & Jackie O, that he would not be returning to the judging panel for the third season.[5] Of his decision, Sandilands said, "Not because I didn't like it. I thought the show was great and it was great fun to do but it's just too hectic, it's too much work. So, I've told Channel Seven, no."[5] Following the announcement, it was rumoured that radio hosts, Merrick Watts and Jackie O, and Australian singer Delta Goodrem, were possible considerations to replace Sandilands.[6] Others who were also rumoured to be replacing Sandilands, included Mel B, Natalie Bassingthwaighte, George Michael and Brian McFadden.[3][7]

On 31 March 2011, it was announced that Bassingthwaighte would join the judging panel as a replacement for judge Natalie Imbruglia.[7] When speaking of her role as a judge, Bassingthwaighte said she will focus on bringing an honest critique to the show and will guide "the artists through the competition."[8] In late April 2011, it was confirmed that Mel B would be Sandilands' replacement as a judge.[9] Mel B said, "[The contestants] are either going to love me or hate me but it's going to be a fun ride. I'm really easy to get on with and I'm a hard worker. I'm firm but nice."[9] Guy Sebastian and Ronan Keating were the only judges from the second season who returned.[10]

Selection process

Auditions

In season three, the minimum age for contestants to audition was changed to 14 years-old, having originally been 16 years-old.[11] Auditions in front of the show's producers began in March 2011 in five cities: Perth (Parmelia Hilton, 27 March), Adelaide (AAMI Stadium, 29 March), Brisbane (Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, 2–3 April), Sydney (Australian Technology Park, 8–10 April) and Melbourne (Moonee Valley Racecourse, 15–17 April).[12] The successful auditionees chosen by the producers were then invited back to the last set of auditions that took place in front of the judges and a live studio audience. These auditions were held in three cities: Brisbane (Brisbane Entertainment Centre, 21–22 May),[13] Melbourne (Hisense Arena, 27–29 May),[14] and Sydney (Sydney Entertainment Centre, 1–3 June).[14][15]

Bootcamp

The bootcamp stage was held in Sydney and was first broadcast on 7 September 2011.[16] On the first day of bootcamp, each judge was given a category to mentor and were joined by a celebrity guest judge to help them decide their top twelve acts.[16] Sebastian was assisted by Wynter Gordon and was given the Under 25 Boys, Keating was assisted by The Veronicas and had the Groups, Bassingthwaighte teamed up with Darren Hayes and was assigned the Over-25s, and Mel B was assisted by her husband Stephen Belafonte and was given the Under 25 Girls.[16][17] On the second day, the Under 25 Boys each had to sing a song made famously by a female artist, the Over-25s got styled for a photo shoot and later each had to perform one song, the Under 25 Girls had to perform choreography to either Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" or Lady Gaga's "Born This Way", and the Groups held recording sessions with vocal producer Erana Clark.[18] On the third day of bootcamp, the judges along with their celebrity guest judges, narrowed down the contestants to six each:[19]

  • Under 25 Boys – Rob Baron, Trent Bell, Reece Mastin, Johnny Ruffo, Declan Sykes, and Mali Talefenua
  • Under 25 Girls – Tyla Bertolli, Sophie Metcalfe (replaced Tara-Lynn Sharrock due to Visa issues),[20] Chantelle Morrell, Jacqui Newland, Christina Parie, and Amy Walton

  • Groups – Audio Vixen, Femme Da Funk, Hype (previously known as Lazy J & Big Guy), Three Wishez, Up Front, and Young Men Society

Home visits

The final round of the selection process, the home visits (formerly the "judges' houses"),[17] saw the judges reduce their six acts to three. Each judge took their six acts to exclusive locations around the world. Sebastian and his Under 25 Boys travelled to New York City, where he was assisted by Beyoncé and her A-Team, Keating and the Groups travelled to Los Angeles, California, where they were assisted by Good Charlotte and Leona Lewis, Bassingthwaighte and her Over 25s travelled to Double Island, Queensland, where she was helped by Jason Derülo, and Mel B and her Under 25 Girls visited Hollywood, where they met up with Melanie C.[20][21][22] After, the judges along with their celebrity guest judges, narrowed down the contestants to three each:[4]

  • Under 25 Boys – Reece Mastin, Johnny Ruffo, and Declan Sykes
  • Under 25 Girls – Tyla Bertolli, Jacqui Newland, and Christina Parie
  • Over-25s – Mitchell Callaway, Cleo Howman, and Andrew Wishart

Reception

Controversy

Three days before the season's premiere, Mel B made comments towards the other judges, labelling them dishonest and boring.[67] She said, "I don't care much for the other judges ... Ronan thinks he knows it all [and] Natalie is just too nice and really dishonest. Guy could just be boring, like 'get on with it. Keep it moving, brother.'"[67] During a radio interview with The Kyle and Jackie O Show on 29 August 2011, Bassingthwaighte responded to Mel B's comments saying, "I think it's in fun – I hope so otherwise she deserves a slap."[68] Mel B appeared on the same radio show the following day and said, "They're all scared of me and I love it, there's got to be one bitch on the show so I might as well take that bloody crown."[69]

More controversy erupted after Sebastian took aim at contestant Mitchell Callaway's attitude to the competition following his performance of "Run to Paradise" on the third live performance show.[70] Sebastian told Callaway: "You've got to have the right attitude to this competition, you've got to be focused and to be honest, not be rude to people and have the work ethic. For you to not learn your lyrics and for you to at times be rude to crew, you really have to pull that in and rein that in because you won't last long in this competition or this industry if you do that."[70] The following morning, Callaway's mentor Bassingthwaighte spoke to radio station 2Day FM about the issue:

"It makes me feel sick actually, I feel sick in the stomach ... I feel Mitchell did the best performance that he's done so far, I think Guy made the mistake of commenting on stuff that didn't happen on camera. He said he's rude to crew and needs to check his behaviour ... When he [Mitchell] got off stage he said, 'I'm not coming back'."[70]

However, later that same day, Callaway tweeted, "I'm not gunna quit guys ... It's not the Aussie way. I'm not gunna let al u beautiful ppl dwn. Or Natalie after everythn she's done."[70] On the third live results show, Sebastian apologised to Callaway and said he "chose the wrong time and place to say it".[71] The Seven Network insiders revealed that a clash between Callaway and another contestant, Declan Sykes, was the real reason behind Sebastian's on-air rebuke.[72] Sykes, who battles Asperger's syndrome, reportedly took offence at being pricked with a pin by Callaway.[72]

Contestants

Contestant Emmanuel Kelly appeared on the first episode of the season's audition show on 29 August 2011, and performed a rendition of John Lennon's "Imagine".[73] His performance earned a standing ovation from the judges and the audience.[73] Keating was full of praise for Kelly, who then moved into the next round of competition. Keating told Kelly: "I don't think I've ever been moved as I was by that performance."[73] Kelly and his brother Ahmed were adopted by Children First Foundation boss, Moira Kelly, who is also the guardian of the once-conjoined Bangladesh twins, Krishna and Trishna.[73] Kelly and his brother came from Iraq, where they were abandoned at an orphanage and both suffered limb deficiencies as a result of chemical warfare.[73] During the third day of bootcamp, Sebastian eliminated Kelly from the competition, disappointed that he had forgotten words to his song the day before.[74]

Another contestant Luke O'Dell appeared on the third audition show on 31 August. After failing to impress the judges with his rendition of Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone", O'Dell then sang an original song he wrote titled, "Introvert Extrovert", which made him an overnight internet sensation.[75] The song entered the iTunes' Top 100 chart overnight and landed O'Dell thousands of fans on social media and his official YouTube channel.[75][76] The song title also became a worldwide trending topic on Twitter for more than two hours, following his television performance of the song.[76] Overnight commentary on Twitter and Facebook quickly labelled O'Dell as the Australian version of Rebecca Black, who found fame with her song, "Friday".[75] However, O'Dell failed to move through to the next round of the competition.[75]

Ratings

The premiere episode on 29 August 2011, topped the nights overall ratings with 1,319,000 viewers,[77] compared to the 1,186,000 viewers who tuned in to watch the premiere episode of the 2010 season.[78] All six of the season's audition episodes ranked first on their respective nights and peaked the highest on 30 August with an audience of 1,690,000 viewers.[77] The first live performance show on 19 September, gained 1,452,000 viewers and topped the nights overall ratings.[79]
