What is The X Factor? / Facts   

  • It is held in various countries
  • The programmes are produced by executive producer Simon Cowell and his company SYCOtv
  • The "X Factor" of the title refers to the undefinable "something" that makes for star quality
  • The prize is usually a recording contract, in addition to the publicity that appearance in the later stages of the show itself generates, not only for the winner but also for other highly ranked contestants
  • The most notable acts to come out of this show are Leona Lewis (2006), Little Mix (2011), One Direction (2010) and Fifth Harmony (2012)nThe similarities between The X Factor and Idols prompted Idol creator Simon Fuller, along with 19 Entertainment, to file a lawsuit against Cowell, SYCOtv, and FremantleMedia in 2004
  • An out-of-court settlement was reached in 2005 allowing Fuller to gain a 10% share in The X Factor format, and preventing an American version until 2010
  • Fuller later filed another lawsuit in 2011, claiming that he had also been promised that he would be credited as an executive producer of The X Factor USA, but that Syco, FremantleMedia, and Fox Broadcasting Company had failed to fulfill that promise; that lawsuit is pending
  • Unlike Idol, where the judges only critique the contestants' performances, on The X Factor each judge "mentors" the finalists in a particular category, aiding them with song selection and styling, while also participating together in judging the contestants in the other categories
  • Not only Idol, but also new singing shows The Voice and Rising Star have become rival shows to The X Factor
