It originated in the United Kingdom , where it was devised as a replacement for Pop Idol — , and has been adapted in various countries. The "X Factor" of the title refers to the undefinable "something" that makes for star quality. 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 All Together Now have become revivals and more popular in recent years. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

We're stuck with The X Factor until — here's how to make it worth watching Premium. By Isabel Mohan. X Factor winner's single proceeds to go to children's charities By Press Association.
From nation's sweetheart to pariah: why Britain has turned on Cheryl Premium. The celebrity couple were both judges on the ITV show last year, though Louis - who is returning for this year's Celebrity series - wasn't terribly complimentary about her in a new interview. It should have been the best panel ever but it just didn't work.
There was no X Factor. Robbie and Ayda have taken a rather comic approach in their response to Louis's words in a new Instagram clip , as the couple sit in bed together. After asking what he is doing tomorrow, Robbie tells Ayda: "Work babe," before going on to reveal that he is working with a "legend" called Louis. As Ayda guesses just which Louis he is referring to, Robbie reveals it is Walsh as they then look at photos on Robbie's laptop. Both Robbie and Ayda posted the video with the hashtag "bring your wife to work day".
