AXS TV is proud to announce the return of the international phenomenon The X Factor UK for the third-consecutive year. We will start the season off with a special two night event on Sunday, August 28, and Monday, August 29, at 8/7c. And once again, AXS TV is the ONLY place in America to air the UK edition of The X Factor.
This season we are welcoming back a few of the most beloved judges to the panel as well as a fan-favorite host Dermot O’Leary. This year, the mastermind behind the X Factor, Simon Cowell, will be re-joined by Sharon Osbourne, who served as a judge for five seasons, Pussycat Dolls alum and two time X Factor judge, Nicole Scherzinger, and chart maestro, Louis Walsh, who will return for a record breaking 12th season on the judging panel.
You may know The X Factor UK for discovering international superstars like One Direction, Leona Lewis, Olly Murs, and Little Mix, who have combined sold over 200 million records worldwide and have earned over 200 Number One hits. Last year, 17-year-old Louisa Johnson became the youngest contestant to walk away with the X Factor UK crown.
The X Factor UK has also created a name for itself by bringing groundbreaking and visually stunning performances from the biggest names in music from all across the world. The show has been the live TV debut for countless #1 hits such as Adele’s “Hello,” Coldplay’s “Adventure Of A Lifetime,” Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off,” Maroon 5’s “Animals,” Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me,” One Direction’s “Where Do Broken Hearts Go,” Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud,” and many more.
Stay tuned for more information about The X Factor UK, fun behind the scenes footage, and as always, tweet along with the show using #UKintheUSA!
