This new television musical competition is actually an adaptation version of Pinoys from the originally acclaimed program in the United Kingdom (UK), The X Factor franchise from where this show originated aimed at pooling new singing talent. Remembering a couple of months ago, ABS-CBN is where we first saw the logo. Some sort of a teaser. Immediately, it made me think that this will be something new. I wasn’t wrong.
Today, the new show starts to air June 23, 2012. The public auditions were already held probably a couple of month ago and was able to pool the set of contestants who will vie for the top spot to win a slot in the grand finals and hopefully win the 4 million grand prize, the biggest so far for a singing competition in the Philippines today.
The original program was produced by executive producer Simon Cowell and his company Syco TV. The “X Factor” title refers to the undefinable “something” that makes up for star quality of a contestant bound to win the competition not just by sheer talent of singing but by looks and overall x factor. Usual prize is usually includes a recording contract with some prestigious recording company.
You can visit for more information the official Facebook Page of X Factor Philippines. In the meantime, for the Philippines’ version of the tv show, there would probably be more than just a recording stint for the prize but what excites auditionists is the initial grand prize of 4 million pesos.
