Commenting on the renewal, Simon Cowell stated: “I couldn’t be happier about The X Factor already being renewed for another season. I am so proud of the show and the team who have made it this season. I want to thank our incredible sponsors for their support and creativity, and FOX for going out of their way to do everything they can to make this show a success. Most importantly, I have to personally thank our amazing fans for the support and enthusiasm they have given to The X Factor. Our main commitment will always be to find great talent, and let’s not forget, we are now days away from our first live shows. The gloves are off! Expect fireworks!”
Season two’s top 16 acts will be revealed tonight after being pushed back from last week due to changes to the MLB schedule which pre-empted parts of the Judges’ Homes episode. The first live show will air on November 1st.
The X Factor is currently averaging 10.6 million viewers.
