THE X FACTOR Pepsi Challenge Invites Fans To Shape Finalists' Performances

Tonight, THE X FACTOR unveils this season's version of the "Pepsi Challenge," allowing the fans to influence the competition like never before.  Viewers will be able to virtually join the judges in the role of mentoring the contestants, as they get the opportunity to choose one of two songs each contestant may perform LIVE on Wednesday, Dec. 5 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.  Fans will have until Saturday, December 1 at 9:00 AM PT/ 12:00 PM ET to cast their votes.  Fans can make their song selections at www.TheXFactorUSA.com.

In addition, this season, Pepsi and THE X FACTOR® have added a new facet to "THE X FACTOR® Pepsi Challenge." Once the songs are determined by the fans' choice, contestants will ask fans to step into a mentoring role – asking for their input on what outfits to wear, what vocal style the songs should be performed in, choreography themes, set design, visual effects, etc.  In addition, fans will be further engaged by the contestants' daily submissions of rehearsal videos, pictures, posts and updates through various social media channels, such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.  The designated hashtag is #PepsiChallenge.  Pepsi and THE X FACTOR® continue to make history by allowing viewers to interact with contestants in real time, and directly impact their performances.

"Last year, Pepsi challenged fans to be a part of the action by choosing a song they'd like to see the finalists perform," said Angelique Krembs, VP Marketing, Pepsi.  "This year, we are taking it to the next level. 'THE X FACTOR® Pepsi Challenge' will allow fans to help shape every aspect of the finalists' performances.

Tune in Wednesdays (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) and Thursdays (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) to THE X FACTOR® as the remaining acts battle it out for America's vote.   At stake is the THE X FACTOR® title and grand prize $5 million dollar recording contract with Syco/Sony Music and a Pepsi commercial during the 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards®.
