X FACTOR Auditions

slide 2:

About X Factor The X Factor is a television music competition franchise created by British producer Simon Cowell and his company SYCOtv. It originated in the United Kingdom where it was devised as a replacement for Pop Idol 2001– 2003 and has been adapted in various countries. The "X Factor" of the title refers to the indefinable "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. 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.

Legal dispute: - Simon Fuller the creator of Pop Idol claimed that the format of The X Factor was copied from his own show. Through his company 19 TV Fuller filed a lawsuit against The X Factor producers Fremantle Media The X Factor creator Simon Cowell and Cowells companies Simco and Syco. A High Court hearing began in London in November 2005 and the outcome was awaited with interest by media lawyers for its potential effect on the legal situation regarding the copyrighting of formats. However the hearing was quickly adjourned and an out-of-court settlement was reached at the end of the month. The X Factor franchise requires every X Factor Contract: - contestant to sign a contract and "sign over their lives" in order to move forward in the competition. Therefore all the choosing and picking between contestants that the celebrity judges do on television is actually pre- determined before airing. Some of the conditions included in this contract include signing over your recording rights allowing The X Factor to monitor your behavior during your time in the competition and if you are eliminated and wish to audition for another TV show you must have the permission from the entire franchise.

The Danish version has been criticized by Danish music Denmark: - contract expert and consultant for The Danish Musicians Association Dansk Musiker Forbund Mikael Højris. According to Højris the contracts for participation in the show are unfair for participants and almost amount to serfdom to DR1 the channel airing the show stating that clauses in the contracts forbid the participants – whether they pass the first round or not – from performing or participating in any other musical event for three months. He also criticizes that participants are obliged to travel at their own expense.

This helps to boost ratings and add some fun into Novelty acts: - the live shows although they tend to be controversial due to the show being primarily a singing competition. Some of the popular novelty acts to appear on the show include Rhydian Roberts Johnny Robinson Rylan Clark Diva Fever Chico Slimani Wagner Stevi Ritchie Seann Miley Moore Honey G and Jedward. These tend to be predominantly in the Overs category and occasionally in the Groups.
