An Australian Version Of The X-Factor Likely To Premier In 2011

It would appear Australian TV channels will be putting more money into Simon Cowell’s pocket with Channel Nine and Seven both vying for the rights of The X Factor.

Executives from both channels met with Simon Cowell to discuss the show an article in the Daily TelegraphΒ reveals.

The article said:

“Seven made a very aggressive play for it and Channel 9 was very interested but were more conscious of the cheque they would have to write – but one way or another, expect it to be on air around February next year.”

X Factor aired here on Channel 10 in 2005, but was a ratings dog.

Don’t expect Kate Cebrano or Mark Holden to make a reappearance on the show. I suspect either Channel will make a play for Danni Minogue to be a judge/mentor.

I have been waiting 15 years for the moment i could stand on stage and do my thing be me and be free but now i find out that you are holding the show in Feb, now i will need to wait another year because my 16th birthday is in March. Im so upset.

I want to audition but have no idea when they are being held… it has been my dream to stand on stage and sing and I’ve missed out 4 times.

3 Matt { 12.08.10 at 11:19 am }

Where on earth does one find information in regards to auditions in Australia, I can’t find audition information anywhere…

4 Reality Raver { 12.08.10 at 11:22 am }

Matt the second season is yet to be announced.

5 Corey Cameron { 12.08.10 at 11:39 am }

I’ve always wanted to show people my singing voice . getting up on stage and singing in front of a crowd is challenging but it’s a really good feeling. I’ve wanted to go audition for something like this. I was disappointed when I found out that Australia Idol closed up but then my hopes came back up when I heard about X Factor. If anyone knows or finds out the audition dates can someone post it up please. thanks a heap Corey :)

16 Damien { 01.27.11 at 12:43 am }

I will audition this year. . Reality Raver you don’t have to repeat yourself to me 4 times like you have had to with others who don’t read all the posts for information and just post a question which has already been answered previous. call me 26 call me old but its pretty simple stuff to read and understand information provided on blogs without asking unecessary questions. You agree? 2011 is yet to be announced but when It does feel free to email me directly I’d like to apply.

28 Johnny { 02.19.11 at 8:49 pm }

Don’t worry Tahlia, I’m sure there will be another season, it had reasonable success, I’m keen as well, might I suggest going round doing some busking/gigs in the interim or maybe charity work at old age homes singing, that will help you warm up, good luck
