ABOUT THE X FACTOR

Hosted by Dominic Bowden, with Melanie Blatt, Daniel Bedingfield, Stan Walker and Ruby Frost as the four-strong judging panel, The X Factor NZ is the first local version of the global television phenomenon format put on the map by music mogul Simon Cowell.

The X Factor NZ is open to singers of aged 14 and up, either solo performers or groups. Contestants who make it through are split into one of four categories – Boys under 25, Girls under 25, Over 25s and Groups. Each category is mentored by one of the four judges.

At stake is the much coveted title of the winner of The X Factor NZ, a recording contract with Sony Music Entertainment New Zealand and the chance to drive away in the All-New 2013 Ford Kuga.

The X Factor NZ is a SYCO owned format and is co-produced by MediaWorks and FremantleMedia Australia. Ford New Zealand is the Broadcast Sponsor, with McDonald’s, Coca-Cola, Samsung as programme partners. NZ on Air is a minority funder of the show.

ABOUT THE LIVE SHOWS

The X Factor NZ LIVE Performance Shows take place on Sunday nights, from May 19. The pressure has never been higher, as the acts perform LIVE on stage in a concert-like show, to persuade both the judges and the public they deserve to continue in the competition.

At the end of each Sunday’s show, the voting lines are opened, and the viewing public can vote via text and Facebook to keep their favourites in the competition.

The results of the public vote are announced in a LIVE results show each Monday night, and the acts with the lowest number of votes are each given one more chance to impress the judges before one act is eliminated from the competition.


MediaWorks NZ Limited (website: www.mediaworks.co.nz) is New Zealand’s leading private sector broadcast and online media company. Through its specialist divisions – MediaWorks TV, MediaWorks Radio and MediaWorks Interactive, it owns and operates the TV3 and FOUR television networks, national radio brands The Edge, The Rock, MORE FM, Kiwi FM, RadioLIVE, LiveSPORT, The Sound, The Breeze, George FM and Mai FM, plus several local radio stations, and a family of websites.
