[X Factor] Sony Entertainment Television Asia will bring the hit British show ‘The X Factor’ for all the Asian audiences. The channel has acquired the rights for Asian version of the popular show, as per the sources.

Simon Cowell, the renowned British television producer created this show. It was devised in UK as a replacement for ‘Pop Idol’. In this singing competition, the contestants are pitted against each other and the aspiring pop singers are selected from public auditions. Now, the show is held in various countries and has become very popular across the countries.

Sony Television has acquired the rights of the show as a part of its autumn/winter line-up and it is likely to be on air after the conclusion of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ and ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’.

After ‘ Idol’, which was the version of the famous show ‘Pop Idol’, the second big buy format for the channel is ‘The X Factor’. ‘ Idol’ is already a craze in Asia so there will be definitely lots of takers for ‘The X Factor’ too here.

With the announcement of ‘KBC’ and ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’, Sony TV has already reserved some TRPs for this season. And now, with this latest addition of ‘The X Factor’, the channel is sure to go high in ranking in autumn/winter season!

X Factor India is all set to make its debut on Indian television after entertaining 24 countries and millions of viewers. The first episode will be broadcast on May 29 on Sony TV. The audition episodes will be seen throughout the week on all days at 9 pm from May 29 till June 4. In the week later the top 12 finalists will feature in Galas from June 10 onwards, every Friday and Saturday at 9 pm. The show will have three categories viz. 16-25 years of age, 25 years and above and also groups. There are three judges on the show Sonu Nigam, Shreya Ghoshal and Sanjay Leela Bhansali will be allotted each category to groom. The show is looking for talent and assures to offer the audience a whole package consisting of vocal ability, charisma and stage presence.

Commenting on what made them want to be a part of this show the three judges cite their own reasons.

Sonu Nigam, “This is not a reality show but a music show. I have done so many shows that I had to at one point stop doing them. The last show I did was Indian Idol Season 2. I have been offered so many shows after that but I never took anything up as they were running after TRPs and would want me to stage fights and walkouts on my fellow judges. X factor is purely about singing and will offer a chance to those talented few who don’t get a chance. I used to sing at weddings in Delhi and used to be paid Rs 150 per day and even after collecting the tips used to take home Rs 250 a day. I have sat outside a lot of composer’s office for hours and hours before getting a chance for playback singing. This show will offer a chance to such talented people to make it big and showcase the talent which made me take up this show.”

Shreya Ghoshal, “I broke into the industry with one such show and this show is giving me a chance to reconnect with myself and remember those days when I was a kid who wore a frock and sang on stage. Also Sonu Nigam used to host that show and Sanjay ji gave me a chance to enter this industry. It’s a great emotional feeling to be a part of this show.”

Sanjay Leela Bhansali, “This show has changed me a lot. I have started talking more to people as I have opened up a lot. I never have worked with Sonu before and this was the first time we are on a show and I totally enjoy his company as he is very funny and entertaining. It’s great to see a girl who I had given a chance sitting next to me in the judge’s seat. My films are musical and that’s why I have probably been offered this show.”

With such talented judges we are hoping to see the bar raised for participants too.
