The X Factor is returning to Seven on Monday October 3rd.
That would surely pit it against The Block and Australian Survivor –which was bound to happen sooner or later.
In a shorter, revamped season this year “The New Generation” has so far announced Guy Sebastian, Iggy Azalea and Adam Lambert as judges.
A fourth “underdog” judge who appears to be a later addition is yet to be revealed. Some media have even speculated on a return by Mel B.
Rap sensation Iggy Azalea, Queen front-man Adam Lambert and chart-topping singer/song writer Guy Sebastian team up to find Australia’s next singing superstar in Channel Seven’s The X Factor: Next Generation premiering Monday, October 3.
The upcoming seventh season of The X Factor will witness a complete reimagining of the world’s most successful talent competition.
The three judges will build their categories unaware of the impending arrival of a fourth Underdog Judge who will lead a new category of contestants originally let go during the 3 Seat Challenge.
The Underdog Judge, one of the world’s biggest superstars, will not be content with second place. Nor will their contestants know they have been handed another, albeit final, chance of realising their dream.
This year, raw talent will be rewarded and refined like never before. With live experience in front of a studio audience and expert mentoring from the judges, contestants will be transformed into superstars.
Open to both solo performers and groups 14 years and over, once The X Factor hopefuls make it past the audition process, the judges will initially split performers into three categories; Under 22, Over 22 and Groups.
The ultimate winner is awarded a recording contract with Sony Music Australia.
