ROUND 1: The Auditions In the first round, each of the contestants must audition for the judges. They either go through to the next round or go home .

ROUND 2: Boot Camp In the second round of the contest the judges are each assigned a category to mentor. Each judge will then get to assemble a team of people to help turn their wannabes into stars! The contestants will then be put through a boot camp and afterwards only 8 will remain in each category.

ROUND 3: Judges' Home Visits Next, the remaining contestants will get to live the life of luxury with their mentors! But it won't be all fun and games as the mentors must whittle their teams down to just 3 each .

ROUND 4: Live Shows The 12 remaining contestants/groups will now get the chance to showdown live on ITV1 along with a wildcard pick by each judge. Week by week more contestants will be voted off the show and we will eventually find out who Britain thinks has got The X Factor!

  • Why ?

    First why the need for judges , none of you base your vote on talent in the singoff . Can't any of you find a set of nads, that's how Shawn was sent home . Your 4 super stars from day one Louissa, Che, lauren, and Shawn. If you need help Simon I can fly out for the week since you can't get your heads out of your arses.
  • Great Program

    This my most favorite singing competition and I actually been enjoying watching Season 11 (the first season to debut in Canada). Most of my favorite singers (Olly Murs, Cher Lloyd, One Direction and Little Mix) have come from the X Factor. Which makes it even more special for me.
  • End the evil empire of X Factor

    This is still not only one of the most annoying programmes still on British TV but also one of the worst ever made. Yeah there have been some decent acts to come off the show but now the producers are more obsessed in deliberately causing controversies because 1 it generates headlines, 2 increases the ratings and 3 humiliate people as cruelly as possible. Worst of all they have renewed it for ANOTHER 3 YEARS. 3 FUCKING YEARS get a grip ITV.

    Cowell should take a hint, strictly is going to continue to kick his ass even when Sir Brucie retires so do the decent thing and scrap this piece of shit and make something unconnected to reality TV.

    DEATH TO THE X FACTOR!!!!moreless
  • Love this show.

    I always loved this show but I have 1 question?Why do they keep switching judges all the time.And from season 1-7 the people with the same type of style kept winning but after season 8 there was finally a change of music style according to the singer(s).But overall I love the X Factor.
  • I watch this show via Youtube and...

    the quality is just as great! Everyone thinks Americans may have the best vocal talent searches, but this show proves otherwise. Like, the stage is so futuristic looking comparison to what we have here. Much larger too... as the taping crowd too. I find hot music to listen to here when I'm bored with American music... very, very different. Simon will always remain fierce. So is the competition and talent on here. Amazing!moreless
