The X Factor is an Australian television reality music competition, based on the original UK series, to find new singing talent. The first season of the show was broadcast from February to May, however since the second season the show has been broadcast from August until the grand final in November. The X Factor is produced by FremantleMedia Australia, and is currently broadcast on the Seven Network. The title "X Factor" refers to a singing talent which is "unique" and "something" that makes for star quality. Network Ten held the rights for the show in 2005, but dropped the show the same year due to poor ratings. In 2010 the Seven Network went into a "bidding war" to gain the rights for the show, and later won the rights and a second season went into production. The X Factor was renewed after a highly successful Australian Idol was no longer broadcast through Network Ten. The X Factor is also broadcast in New Zealand on TV3. Two seasons of The Xtra Factor have been broadcast through Network Ten in 2005 and 7Two in 2010. Although the show was not renewed for a third season in 2011. The original judging panel line-up in 2005 consisted of Kate Ceberano, Mark Holden and John Reid. When the show was revived in 2010 for a second season, the judging panel was replaced by Ronan Keating, Guy Sebastian, Natalie Imbruglia and Kyle Sandilands. Imbruglia and Sandilands opted not to return for season three and were replaced by Melanie Brown and Natalie Bassingthwaighte after their departure. Dannii Minogue will replace Brown in the fifth season. During the televised audition phases of The X Factor, originally the contestants sang in an "audition room" in front of just the judges, however from season two onwards all auditionees sing on stage in an arena, in front of the judges and an a live audience. The acts which are successful will progress to the next stage of the competition, "bootcamp" and then to "home visits", where the judges narrow their category down to three acts who will continue to the live shows, where the public vote for their favourite act, following weekly performances by the contestants. There have been four winners to date: Random, Altiyan Childs, Reece Mastin and Samantha Jade. Winners receive a recording contract with record label Sony Music Australia. In season three, the winner would also receive a management contract, and in season four, a Nissan Dualis car. Each winning contestant's single has charted within the top-ten on the ARIA Singles Chart, only Mastin's and Jade's singles have reached number one. There have also been a number of hit singles released by contestants who have appeared on The X Factor. The show's ratings were at its highest throughout the fourth season, with a peak of 1.6 million. The X Factor has received numerous awards and nominations, including four Logie Award nominations.
