The X Factor is an American television music competition to find new singing talent; the winner of which receives a $5 million recording contract with Epic Records.[1] The first season began airing on September 21, 2011, on Fox and is due to end in December the same year. It is simultaneously broadcast in Canada on CTV or CTV Two, depending on schedule.

Based on the UK format, the competition consists of auditions, in front of producers and then the judges with a live audience; bootcamp; judges' houses and then the live finals. Auditions for the show began in March 2011 and concluded in June 2011.[2] The show is hosted by Welsh TV presenter Steve Jones, while the judging panel consists of Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, L.A. Reid and Nicole Scherzinger.

An early preview of the show aired during the 2011 Major League Baseball All-Star Game on July 12, 2011. Another preview was shown following American football coverage on Fox on September 11.

Auditions

Cities where the auditions were held.

Auditions for producers began in Los Angeles, California, on March 27, 2011, at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena. They then took place in Miami, Florida, on April 7, 2011, at the BankUnited Center and continued in Newark, New Jersey's Prudential Center on April 14, 2011. More auditions took place in Seattle, Washington's KeyArena on April 20, 2011, and Chicago, Illinois's Sears Centre on April 27, 2011, and finished in Dallas, Texas's American Airlines Center on May 26, 2011.[3][4]

It was reported that The X Factor had broken the auditions record in Los Angeles on March 27.[5] It was reported that over 20,000 people auditioned in Newark, New Jersey,[6] and it was also reported that over 5,000 people auditioned in Seattle.[7]

The MyStudio HD audition booths opened in Honolulu, Hawaii; Phoenix, Arizona; Nashville, Tennessee; Anchorage, Alaska; Kansas City, Kansas; and Denver, Colorado.[8] Originally scheduled to end on April 30, 2011, the booths' opening ended up being extended until May 8, 2011. After it was announced that people auditioning through this method was in such high demand, auditions at the booths' ended up being extended until May 15, 2011.

On June 3, Cowell announced that applicants could upload a video of them singing onto YouTube and it was opened for one week only (June 9).[9] Selected applicants would appear in front of the judges.

The last set of auditions took place during May and June, 2011. These auditions individually occur simultaneously before both the judges and a live studio audience; and with such audience in attendance able to applaud/cheer approval or disapproval and perhaps influencing the judges.[2]

Auditions footage first aired on September 21, though they were not aired in the same order that they occurred.[10]

Bootcamp

Day 1 of bootcamp started with dance training with choreographer Brian Friedman and then the acts were called to the stage in groups of 10 to sing in front of the judges. After all of them performed, the acts were brought in front of the judges as part of one of three groups. Two of these groups made it through and one was eliminated, leaving 100 acts still in the competition. The judges threw a party for the remaining acts that for many lasted late into the night.

Day 2 started with everyone getting woken up at 6 am and heading to meet Reid. He informed them that they would be put into "ensembles" and groups, and would be working with stylists, choreographers, and vocal coaches. They were given five hours to learn the songs they were given. One third of the acts would be eliminated by the end of the second day. Several of the ensembles performances were aired. The first ensemble performed "Creep", the second ensemble performed "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For", the third ensemble performed "Desperado", the fourth ensemble performed "Wishing on a Star", the fifth ensemble performed "Superman (It's Not Easy)", the sixth ensemble performed "Feeling Good", the seventh ensemble performed "I Have Nothing" and the eighth ensemble performed "Run".

Day 2 continued with more ensembles performing for the judges. The ninth ensemble performed "What's Going On". Next, they showed a couple of quick shots of some ensembles, presumably consisting of all people that would not make it through to the end. The tenth ensemble that was covered in detail performed "I Won't Let Go". The eleventh (and final) ensemble performed "Chasing Cars". Next, the judges deliberated, and decided on which a third of the acts would be eliminated. Once again, three groups were brought in. Group 1 was eliminated, meaning groups 2 and 3 made it through to the next round of bootcamp.

Day 3 had all 64 acts perform for the judges. They were given a list of 35 songs at the end of the day 2 and were told to choose one that best represented them. At the end of this final bootcamp round, 32 acts would go through to the judges' houses. This final performance was done in front of a crowd of 3,000 people. After each of the performances, the judges gave no feedback.

The first bootcamp episode aired on October 5, 2011 and covered the first two days of bootcamp.[10] The second bootcamp episode aired on October 6 and covered the rest of Day 2 and the remainder of bootcamp. By the end of bootcamp, 162 acts were cut to 32, 8 acts in each category. The judges later found out which category they would mentor and their acts joined them at their house.

Judges' houses

Mariah Carey was contracted to aid Cowell in France, but was unable to attend due to Hurricane Irene grounding her flight to Paris. Enrique Iglesias helped Scherzinger to pick her finalists in Malibu, California and Pharrell Williams acted as a guest judge helping Abdul to pick her finalists in Santa Barbara, California. Rihanna helped L.A. Reid choose his finalists in The Hamptons, New York.[11]

In the United States, footage from Judges' houses was originally scheduled to air on October 12, 13 and 18. However, due to weather delaying the start of the 2011 American League Championship Series (ALCS), the footage from Judges' houses 1 was moved to October 13, with footage from Judges' houses 2 seen instead on October 16; the footage from Judges' houses 3 which was scheduled to air on October 18 has now been replaced by the judges revealing their 4 finalists (or 5 in the case of Cowell) in each category to take through to the live shows. In Canada the first Judges' Houses episode was broadcast as originally scheduled on October 12.[12] No episode was shown in Canada on October 13, with CTV and CTV Two opting to follow Fox's scheduling changes to take advantage of simsub rules.

The fifteen eliminated acts were:

  • Boys: Skyelor Anderson, Tim Cifers, Brennin Hunt, Nick Voss.
  • Girls: Caitlin Koch, Jazzlyn Little, Tora Woloshin.
  • Over-30s: Tiger Budbill, Christa Collins, Elaine Gibbs, James Kenney.
  • Groups: 2Squar'd, 4Shore, The Anser, Illusion Confusion.

Melanie Amaro was initially eliminated from the Girls' category, but was invited back to the competition after Cowell decided he had made a mistake in not including her, bringing the total number of finalists to 17.[13]

The 17 finalists were confirmed as follows;

Boys (Reid) Astro Marcus Canty Phillip Lomax Chris Rene
Girls (Cowell) Melanie Amaro Simone Battle Rachel Crow Drew Tiah Tolliver

Live shows

The first two-and-a-half hour live show aired on a special Tuesday time slot on October 25; which followed the same format as the latest series of the UK show with each of the judges narrowing their number of acts down to three, without a public vote. The public vote starts with the following performance and results shows starting November 2, which airs on Wednesdays and Thursdays respectively (except for the live shows on November 22 and 23, that will air on Tuesday and Wednesday respectively during Thanksgiving). The two-part finale will be held on December 21 and 22.[14][15] Leona Lewis, the winner of series 3 of the UK X Factor, confirmed during an interview with The Sun that she had been invited to perform on one of the live shows.[16]

There was no guest performance during the first week. Outasight performed on the second live result show,[citation needed] while the third live result show featured performances from Jessie J and Willow Smith.[citation needed] Rihanna will perform on the fourth live results show.[citation needed] Britney Spears Jotiva (who will be performing a medley of chart toppers Toxic, Criminal and Soda Pop) and Taio Cruz with Flo Rida will perform on the fifth live results show.[citation needed] The show on December 1, 2011 will have Tinie Tempah performing his hit single, "Pass Out".[citation needed] The seventh live show will feature performances from X Factor (US) judge Nicole Scherzinger and Romeo Santos featuring Usher. The eighth live result show will feature performances from X Factor UK Winner Leona Lewis and Alicia Keys

Notes

  1. ^ a b Due to a weather delay of the start of the fourth game of 2011 American League Championship Series on October 12, 2011 (also broadcast on Fox), the judges' houses 1 episode, which was originally scheduled for October 12, was moved back a day to October 13. The judges' houses 2 episode was originally scheduled for October 13 and so was also moved to October 16. The time-delay version shown in the UK was also delayed to avoid the results being shown outside of the U.S. first.
