Series information and cast
The Australian adaptation of the hit UK music competition series, The X Factor Australia has been on the air since 2005. It was originally picked up by Network Ten in 2005, but was discontinued after just one installment due to poor ratings. Seven Network took over the series in 2010, and this time around the program had much better luck, in part since it no longer had to compete for viewers` attention with Australian Idol, which went off the air. The X Factor is executive produced by Jonathon Summerhayes, produced by FremantleMedia Australia and currently presented by Daniel MacPherson, Luke Jacobz and Jason Dundas. The current eighth season debuted on October 3, 2016.
The show’s goal is to bring out the most deserving singing talent, although the contestants are also judged on their appearance, stage presence and personality. The winner of the contest receives a recording contract with Sony Music Australia. The judging panel in the current season is comprised of Guy Sebastian, Adam Lambert, Mel B and Iggy Azalea, with the auditions taking place in 17 Australian cities.
Viewership, awards and chances of renewal
904,000 live viewers saw the current series premiere, and over 800,000 fans are steadily tuning in to watch the popular reality program. The show has garnered numerous awards and nominations, and the most recent addition to the roster of accolades is the Reality Television Production award at the 2015 Screen Producers Australia Awards. Stay tuned, and we’ll inform you when the hit show is renewed for series nine, which, we believe, is practically certain.
