About the series
The X Factor is a British television music competition aimed at finding new singing talent. The franchise was created by Simon Cowell and has been renewed for series 13 which premiered on August 27, 2016.
At its core, The X Factor is all about discovering new talented singers from a large pool of aspiring vocalists drawn from public auditions. Produced by FremantleMedia’s Thames and Cowell’s production company SycoTV, the series consists of auditions, bootcamp, judges’ houses, several weeks of live shows, semi-finals and the final episode in which the winner is announced. The biggest television talent competition in Europe, the show has produced eleven winners who have received a recording contract with record label Syco Music.
Since its inception in 2004, The X Factor has seen a number of changes in hosts and judges. The current series` judge panel is comprised of Simon Cowell, Sharon Osbourne, Louis Walsh, Nicole Scherzinger and Mel B as the guest judge. Dermot O`Leary presents the show with co-hosts Matt Edmondson, Roman Kemp and Rylan Clark-Neal.
Series 13 and future prospects
Series 13 returned to going all around the UK in search of new talent rather than going to just Manchester and London, like the previous series. The current chapter opened with 6.34 million viewers, with the viewership actually climbing to 7.46 million viewers for episode 3. There has been no word from ITV regarding the release date for a possible series 14, but we all know the show`s not going anywhere – except the next television season.
