The X Factor is an Australian television reality music competition, based on the original UK series, to find new singing talent. The first season of the show premiered on Network Ten on 6 February 2005. Ten dropped The X Factor after the first season due to its poor ratings. In 2010, the Seven Network won the rights to the show, and a second season went into production. The X Factor was renewed after the highly successful Australian Idol was no longer broadcast on Network Ten. The X Factor was produced by FremantleMedia Australia, and was broadcast on the Seven Network in Australia and on TV3 in New Zealand. The program was cancelled after its eighth season in 2016.

  • Matthew Newton was originally announced as Season 2 host, and had filmed several hours worth of footage during the audition & bootcamp stages. However, due to negative publicity from an alleged altercation with his girlfriend Rachael Taylor, Matthew resigned from his position as host, just one week before the first episode went to air. This caused last minute re-edits to remove all footage of Matthew from the show, as replacement Luke Jacobz was called upon to host.
