The X Factor
The X Factor is a television music competition franchise created by Simon Cowell. It originated in the United Kingdom, where it was devised as a replacement for Pop Idol (2001-2003). It is held in various countries. The programmes are produced by executive producer Simon Cowell and his company SYCOtv. The "X Factor" of the title refers to the undefinable "something" that makes for star quality. The prize is usually a recording contract, in addition to the publicity that appearance in the later stages of the show itself generates, not only for the winner but also for other highly ranked contestants.

Little Mix (2011)

Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall auditioned on The X Factor as solo artists ultimately being put together to form the girl group Little Mix (formerly called Rhythmix). With help from their mentor, Tulisa Contostavlos, the group built up a strong fanbase with their excellent vocal harmonies, strong performances and, on December 11, 2011, they made history by becoming the first group ever to win The X Factor UK Factor in the show's eight-year history. They released their first single, a cover of the Damien Rice song Cannonball, that same day via digital download. A physical copy of the single, which will also contain 3 of the group's best performances from the show, was released in stores on December 14, 2011. "Cannonball" debuted at number one on the UK Singles Charts 4 days later on December 18, 2011. The group's debut album DNA was released on November 19, 2012 and has spawned two hit singles, the title track and Wings. They keep their fans, known as "Mixers", up-to-date via Twitter.
