Baxxter Season 3 Sandra Nasic Season 3 Moses Pelham Season 3. In a few weeks since series 3, dubbed "Double elimination", a variant occurred whereas the act with the fewest votes was automatically eliminated, and the two with the next fewest votes performed in the "final showdown" as normal.
Double eliminations have since occurred occasionally in series 7, 8, 11, 12 and 14 onwards, with series 12, 14 and 15 using them more frequently than usual due to the reduction of live shows from 10 weeks to 7 weeks.
The actual number of votes cast for each act is not revealed, nor even the order until the end of the series since series 5 ; according to a spokesman, "We would never reveal the voting figures during the competition as it could give contestants an unfair advantage and spoil the competition for viewers".
Once the number of contestants has been reduced to four series 1, 3, 7, 8 and 9 or five series 2, 4, 5 and 6 , the "Final Showdown" element is removed, and the act which polled the fewest votes is automatically eliminated from the competition.
From series 10 onwards, the semi-final proceeds with the bottom two in the final showdown for the judges to decide who to send home before the final.
Four occasions in series 7, 10, 13 and 15 during the semi-final saw the judges instead vote to send one of the bottom two through to the final.
In series 1, the eliminated acts also reprised one of their songs in the results show after being voted off. This has become less common in other series, instead being relegated to results shows with no final showdown.
In series 10, the flash vote was introduced: where one contestant is revealed with the fewest flash votes on Saturday's live show, and the contestant with the second lowest votes from the remaining public vote is announced on Sunday's results show and therefore participates in the final showdown with the other contestant.
Despite the flash vote eliminating all possibilities of deadlock, it quickly drew criticism from viewers and was quickly dropped after several weeks.
However, another variation of the flash vote has debuted in series 11 twice as part of a double elimination. In this variation, the act who polled the fewest votes on Saturday's show is automatically eliminated.
The two acts with the next fewest votes on Sunday then perform in the final showdown. This double elimination variation was used once again in series 12 and for the semi-final in series 15; in the latter case two acts were eliminated on Saturday prior to the sing-off on Sunday.
A lifeline vote was introduced within the first half of the series 13 live shows, where the bottom three contestants are announced.
Viewers are then given a few minutes to vote to save one of the bottom three, with the winner of the lifeline vote avoiding the final showdown.
As of series 14, each week is a double elimination, as the contestants are split into two halves competing on Saturday and Sunday night, respectively.
Each night, the results are announced at the end of the show, one act with the fewest votes is eliminated followed by the winning contestant thereafter.
The quarter-final during this series served as the show's first quadruple public vote elimination, as two acts in each night were eliminated, meaning four acts will be voted-off over two nights.
The two winning contestants of both Saturday and Sunday night then compete in a sing-off to win their weekly prize.
Once they have performed their sing-off songs, the lines then reopen and the public votes on which contestant to win the weekly prize. The semi-final dispensed with the prize fight format in a triple elimination; on Saturday night, all the acts instead sing one song each to remain in the competition before the lines open briefly, then the act with the lowest votes that night facing elimination.
The remaining acts then sing one more song on Sunday night for the public vote to go through to the final, the two acts with the lowest votes on the night are also eliminated, culmininating to three acts eliminated that week.
Series 15 has reverted to the usual Sunday elimination format with every live show being a double elimination, albeit mostly with the lines freezing before the results show and the act with the lowest votes eliminated immediately at the beginning of the show before lines reopen briefly.
The first and third live shows avoided this variation of the format; in the latter show, problems that caused sound to be distorted during some of the performances caused the Saturday vote to be cancelled and in the Sunday results show, the performances were rebroadcast without the sound problems before lines reopened in order to give all the acts a fair shot.
The semi-final followed roughly the same format as the series 14 semi-final, albeit with two acts eliminated immediately after the acts' Saturday performances, before the remainder of the acts sing their second song on Sunday to avoid the sing-off.
Following the appointment of singer Minogue as a judge in series 4, the same principle could not universally apply. In fact, when Minogue won series 4 with Leon Jackson , a new outside manager was appointed.
The X Factor Live Tour is a live show that tours the UK and Ireland in the months following the conclusion of the series.
It features an array of finalists from the most recent The X Factor series. From until , Jeff Brazier hosted the tour. Becca Dudley took over the hosting duties from the tour, which sees a revamped format in which the finalists compete to be the winner of each night's tour, with the arena audience voting for the night's winner.
From series 1—3, the X Factor judges were music executive and TV producer Simon Cowell , and music managers Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh , although Paula Abdul was a guest judge at the London auditions in series 3.
On 22 June, it was confirmed that Friedman had been reassigned the role of creative director and would be replaced on the panel by Walsh.
Speculation surrounded judging line-up changes for series 5 , centering on whether Osbourne would return. On 6 June , six days before filming for series 5 was due to begin, ITV confirmed that Osbourne had left the show,  and a number of other artists and producers were approached regarding her replacement.
On 10 June, Cheryl Cole was confirmed as Osbourne's replacement. Despite rumours that Minogue would leave the show after series 5,   all four judges from series 5 returned for series 6.
Due to Minogue's maternity leave during series 7, a series of guest judges filled in for her at the audition stages before she rejoined the panel in September.
The guest judges were Geri Halliwell , Natalie Imbruglia , Katy Perry , Pixie Lott and Nicole Scherzinger. In July , Cole was diagnosed with malaria towards the end of the auditions, so Scherzinger returned as a guest judge for bootcamp.
On 5 May , it was announced that Cowell and Cole would not be returning to the judging panel for the eighth series , to concentrate on the American version of the programme.
Of her decision, Minogue said "During discussions for me to return [to The X Factor ] it became clear that unfortunately, this year, The X Factor audition dates in the UK clash with the live shows of Australia's Got Talent during June and July.
For this reason I am unable to return. Barlow,   Walsh  and Tulisa  returned for series 9. Rowland left due to other commitments.
On 21 May , ending months of media speculation, Tulisa announced that she would not return as a judge for the 10th series. On 7 February , it was confirmed that Cowell would return as a judge for series Cowell was confirmed to return as a judge for the 12th series.
He also revealed that he was in the dark about whom Cowell had the intentions of bringing onto the panel. To get 10 was great, to get 11 was amazing — I'm not hanging around for them this year.
On 18 February , a series representative announced Grimshaw's departure from the judging panel, confirming: "We are sad to see him go but wish him all the best.
In , Williams and Field announced their departures from the programme. Sharon Osbourne —, , — Nicole Scherzinger —, — The first three series of the show were hosted by Kate Thornton.
On 16 April , ITV confirmed that both Olly Murs and Flack would take over presenting duties, becoming the first duo to host the show.
In a statement, Murs stated, "This was an incredibly hard decision to make and one I didn't take lightly as I've really enjoyed co-hosting The X Factor.
Friedman served as performance coach and choreographer billed as "Creative Director" from series 4—7 and left before series 8 to join the American version.
Brian Burke and Elizabeth Honan replaced him for series 8, although Friedman returned for three weeks in series 9 and Honan did not return.
For series 10, Burke was replaced by Jerry Reeve and Mark "Swany" Swanhart. Friedman returned as creative director in series 11, replacing Reeve and Swanhart.
Yvie Burnett has been The X Factor 's vocal coach since series 2, but was replaced in series 7 by Ali Tennant and Savan Kotecha.
However, Tennant's contract was ended before the live shows and Burnett was reinstated. Dickson announced his departure from the show on 28 July ,  but announced his return due to "popular demand" on 30 October Dermot O'Leary —, — In each series, each judge is allocated a category to mentor and chooses a small number of acts three or four, depending on the series to progress to the live finals.
From series 1—11 and 13 onwards, these categories were decided by the producers of the show. In series 12 viewers voted via hashtags on Twitter to determine which of the judges is allocated each of the four categories.
Viewing figures of around 10 million were claimed for series 2 and 4, and 11 to 12 million for series 5. Over three million public votes were cast in series 2 and six million in the first part of the final.
The series 3 final attracted 8 million votes  and a peak of The BBC's rival talent show Strictly Come Dancing initially beat The X Factor in viewing figures in , although The X Factor soon reversed this trend, and when the shows went head-to-head for the first time, [ when?
Since , however, ratings of The X Factor have been in sharp decline. It was overtaken in the rating battle by Strictly Come Dancing during series 8 and has since very rarely managed to beat it, with Strictly Come Dancing extending its lead over the show per year.
In , The X Factor was beaten head-to-head in some live shows by other BBC programmes, such as Michael McIntyre's Big Show and Planet Earth II.
The ratings crisis has worsened in the following year with the show recording its lowest ever figures and Strictly Come Dancing now enjoying nearly three times the audience figures of The X Factor in most weeks.
The show won the Entertainment award at the Royal Television Society Awards , described as "Undeniably a brilliant, genre-defining piece of television; the team behind this show never rest on their laurels and are determined to continually raise the bar and set new standards.
Must-see television, which everyone talks about on a Monday morning. The show also won Best UK TV Show at the Kids' Choice Awards. The viewing figures for the first seven years of the show featured an upwards trend excluding the third series until it peaked for its seventh series in However since the eight series, viewing figures have declined year on year, with the average audience figure for the ninth series being over 2 million lower than the previous year.
Viewing figure information is provided by the Broadcasters' Audience Research Board BARB. From the outset, The X Factor has attracted heavy criticism.
Recurring allegations include: that the excessive commercialism of the show detracts from its supposed purpose of unearthing musical talent and even actively damages and distorts the UK music industry;  that auditionees at mass auditions are shabbily treated; that controversy is deliberately courted and orchestrated, and supposedly spontaneous scenes are staged and scripted; that problems with phone lines leave members of the public unable to vote for their favourite acts; and that contestants are manipulated and unfairly edited.
This criticism became very public in when a Facebook campaign targeted against The X Factor and its effect on British music took " Killing in the Name " by Rage Against the Machine to the Christmas number one spot at the expense of the X Factor winner's single by Joe McElderry.
The first series was only available to Irish viewers through the Northern Ireland-based ITV station UTV , which was widely available in the Republic, but subsequent series have also been shown on the Irish terrestrial TV station TV3.
Series 1—4 of The X Factor effectively included Irish viewers on an equal footing, and Irish viewers were able to vote in these series via SMS or telephone.
However, in series 5, voting from Republic of Ireland was discontinued, with the decision being blamed on new regulations introduced regarding phone competitions in the UK.
The show held auditions in Dublin and Belfast for the first three series, with Belfast auditions continuing for series 4 before being dropped, though Irish singers could still audition in other cities.
Dublin first round auditions returned in  with the auditions held on 28 June. In , The X Factor did not hold auditions in Ireland, instead replacing them with a new audition city, Liverpool.
Auditions did return to Dublin in , however. Northern Irish finalists have included Phillip Magee series 2 , Eoghan Quigg series 5 , and Janet Devlin series 8.
Winners of The X Factor reached the top of Ireland's Christmas chart every year from to The Xtra Factor known as The Xtra Factor Live in was a behind-the-scenes companion show that was broadcast on ITV2 in the UK and on TV3 in Ireland, usually on Saturday and Sunday nights after the main show, this aired from 4 September to 11 December On 18 January , it was announced that The Xtra Factor would be axed after 13 years and would be replaced by an online show instead.
The X Factor: Battle of the Stars was a celebrity special edition of The X Factor , which screened on ITV, starting on 29 May and lasting for eight consecutive nights.
Pop Idol was intended to be broadcast in its place as Celebrity Pop Idol but was stopped shortly before transmission, when ITV selected The X Factor instead.
Nine celebrity acts participated, singing live in front of the nation and facing the judges of the previous The X Factor series: Cowell, Osbourne and Walsh.
Voting revenues were donated to the celebrities' chosen charities. The contestants were Michelle Marsh , Nikki Sanderson , Matt Stevens , Lucy Benjamin , Gillian McKeith , Chris Moyles , Paul Daniels and Debbie McGee , James Hewitt and Rebecca Loos , and "The Chefs", a quartet of celebrity chefs comprising Jean-Christophe Novelli , Aldo Zilli , Paul Rankin and Ross Burden.

By series 6 in , it had seemingly become such a certainty that the X Factor winner would gain the Christmas number one slot every year that bookmakers William Hill were considering withdrawing from the year tradition of betting on the outcome.
In series 1—2, the winner's debut album would be released a few months after their victory in the show.
The album would contain some new material but would consist largely of cover versions. This format changed with series 3 winner Leona Lewis.
Cowell, Lewis's X Factor mentor and newly appointed manager, said: "We could have gone into the studio for a month, made the record quick, and thrown it out.
It would have been the wrong thing to do. Series 10 winner Sam Bailey , however, released her debut album of covers, The Power of Love , in March , just three months after winning — the earliest ever debut album release by an X Factor winner.
During the fifth series of the show, the finalists released a cover of Mariah Carey 's " Hero " in aid of Help for Heroes which reached number one in the UK singles charts.
Following the success of the song, Cowell announced that a charity single would be released annually though the process was discontinued in series 9.

The two acts polling the fewest votes are revealed. Both these acts perform again in a "final showdown", and the judges vote on which of the two to send home.
They were able to pick new songs to perform in the "final showdown". Ties are possible as there are four judges voting on which of the two to send home.
In the event of a tie the result goes to deadlock, and the act who came last in the public vote is sent home.
The actual number of votes cast for each act is not revealed, nor even the order. However, a twist occurred in season two where the rankings of the acts based on the public vote for the week were revealed after the eliminations on the show.
Once the number of contestants has been reduced to four, the act which polled the fewest votes is automatically eliminated from the competition the judges do not have a vote; their only role is to comment on the performances.
In the final episode the three remaining acts sing two songs, including one performed with an invited music star.
The viewers choose the winner by SMS voting or phoning. Three acts remain until the grand final where the public vote alone chooses the winner of the series.
Owing to the addition of four wildcard contestants, two acts were eliminated from the series' first results show. The three acts with the fewest votes were announced as the bottom three and the act with the fewest public votes was then automatically eliminated.
The remaining two acts then performed in the final showdown for the judges' votes. The live shows underwent a change in this season. In the first three live shows, each category will have its own final showdown, the result of which is decided solely by its mentor.
The outcome of the fourth show will only rely on the public vote and will have two eliminations one of which will happen halfway through of the show, when the voting will have been frozen.
Thus, the final will have four contestants not three as in previous seasons. Two of the finalists will be eliminated halfway through the final show, when the voting will have been frozen.
The winner is still determined by the public vote. The live shows will have a change in this season. Only four live shows will take place.
In the first two live shows, each category will have its own final showdown, the result of which is decided solely by its mentor. The outcome of the third show will only rely on the public vote and will have two eliminations one of which will happen halfway through of the show, when the voting will have been frozen.
The final will have four contestants. On July 10, , Antena 1 announced that the ninth season will be accompanied by an online behind-the-scenes show called eXtra Factor.
When it was announced that The X Factor would return in , the jury was entirely changed. They were replaced by Holograf singer Dan Bittman , pop singer Delia Matache and rapper Cheloo.
