Here's a look at the hottest contestants from episode one and two of the X-FACTOR on Fox! Tune in on Wednesdays, 8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed and Thursdays, 8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed).

Expect the unexpected when the world’s only $5 million audition returns with two new superstar judges and more surprises and twists. Season Two of THE X FACTOR features global pop icon Britney Spears and multi-talented artist Demi Lovato on the judging panel, alongside returning judges Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid.

THE X FACTOR, last season’s No. 1 new unscripted series, gives viewers the opportunity to help discover the next global superstar or breakout music group. The superstar team of judges travels the nation searching for talent 12 years old or over – both solo artists and vocal groups – who are willing to brave the panel for a chance to make their dreams come true. Auditions for THE X FACTOR were held this spring in Kansas City, MO; Austin, TX; San Francisco, CA; Greensboro, NC; and Providence, RI.

In a departure from other singing competition series, contestants not only audition in front of THE X FACTOR judges. Perhaps more importantly, they sing for an audience of thousands, which is often referred to as the “fifth” judge, because their enthusiasm – or lack thereof – can help determine the fate of these hopefuls. This initial audition is the ultimate test to prove they have the vocal ability, charisma and stage presence it takes to become a global superstar or breakout music act and win a $5 million recording contract with Syco/Sony Music.

Those contestants who survive the first auditions graduate to “boot camp” and will be divided into four categories – Boys, Girls, Over 30s and Groups. Each category will be mentored by one of the show’s judges. Not only is it a competition between the hopefuls to stake their claim for the coveted win, but it’s also a showdown among the judges as to whose acts will dominate the competition and make it to the finals. The judges may have their say in how the competition progresses, but it will be up to America to decide who ultimately has THE X FACTOR.
