Here is a look at the top 9 vote getters from our X Factor poll. Olly Murs rounded out the top 10.
Good to see both the US and UK well-represented, as well as the fans of Altiyan who fought hard to keep him in contention.
Feel free to discuss the topic as well as those on current US, UK and Australia versions who you think may find their way into the Top 10. Let's hope Rion Paige who is a good singer with an even better story succeeds in the US version.
Simon Cowell, infamous American Idol judge and creator of the UK talent search series, The X Factor UK is set to launch the American version of the show on FOX in Sept of 2011. The X Factor is a reality television singing competition on FOX. As part of the The X Factor franchise, the program's format differs from its rivals in numerous ways. The competition is open to both solo artists and groups, has no upper age limit, and the judges act as mentors to the final contestants. Each judge is assigned a category-girls under 25, boys under 25, individuals over 25, and groups-that they place the finalists in after the audition process. Through the live shows, the judges act as mentors to the contestants helping decide song choices and styling, while judging contestants from other categories. Also the top prize for the winner is 5 Million Dollars.moreless
