Find out on The X Factor: The Band, Monday December 9, 2019 at 8:30pm, on ITV and STV.
The X Factor: The Band is an upcoming special edition of British reality talent competition The X Factor, which will premiere on 9 December 2019 on ITV. The format for the series was announced on 4 November 2019 as a replacement for a planned All Stars spin-off series, which was originally supposed to air following The X Factor: Celebrity in late-2019.
The format will see Simon Cowell and entertainer Nicole Scherzinger compete to find the best new boyband and girl band, with contestants auditioning in front of industry experts and guest judges including Leona Lewis, Naughty Boy and Ella Eyre. The Band is expected to run over the course of four episodes on 9, 11 and 13 December, with a live finale the Resorts World Arena in Birmingham on 15 December 2019.
The series was first reported in early 2019 as being The X Factor: All Stars, as the regular series is being put on hiatus due to declining ratings. However, in November 2019, it was announced that the proposed All Stars series had been axed in favour of The X Factor: The Band. The new spin-off will see acts audition to form part of a girl group and boy band. The news came just weeks after former X Factor winners Little Mix announced their own plans for a similar series, Little Mix: The Search, on BBC One in 2020.
The auditions take place at Syco Music headquarters in London, in front of the judges and industry experts. The series will air over four episodes, beginning Monday 9th, then Wednesday 11th and Friday 13th December before the live finale on Sunday 15th December which is being held at the Resorts World Arena in Birmingham. Speaking on the decision to host the finale in Birmingham, host Dermot O’Leary said “it’s always nice to get out and take the show around the country. We did the final in Manchester a few years ago, which went really well. It’s always nice to get out and see other places and you get a full sense of the whole country being involved as well. I’m looking forward to it!”
Dermot O’Leary will be returning to host the programme. Cowell is judging the programme alongside Nicole Scherzinger who has previously served as a judge on the main version of the programme as well as judging the recently aired celebrity version. Industry experts and artists will also join the judges as guests, including series 3 winner, Leona Lewis, producer Naughty Boy and singer songwriter Ella Eyre.
