It was created by Simon Cowell and produced by Fremantle Media North America and SYCO. The first season of the show began airing in 2011 and continued its three seasons until 2013.
Will There Be X Factor 2018 in USA?
The first season in X Factor USA series was started long back in 2011 and continued till 2013. In 2014, the most important judge of the show Simon Cowell announced that he will be going back to the UK version of the show. Soon after his announcement Fox cancels the X Factor in USA.
“To all of us at Fox, Simon is more than one of the most prolific TV personalities of our time –he’s part of our family. A consummate showman and partner, there’s no one more passionate or creative than Simon, and we feel so fortunate to have enjoyed such a wonderful, collaborative relationship with him over the past 12 years. Unfortunately, there is no X Factor without Simon Cowell, but we understand and support his decision to focus on the international formats and on the next phase of his personal life. We wish him the very best, and it’s our sincere hope that we work together again soon.”
In 2016, Simon Cowell has revealed that the USA version of X Factor was not cancelled and hinted it might return back soon. He said, “Everybody thinks X Factor was cancelled – that wasn’t the case. Fox offered us another season, but I couldn’t do it, so that’s why we stopped the production, because I couldn’t do it any more.” He further said, “Even though the numbers weren’t as good as we hoped, in today’s climate they were brilliant figures – we just didn’t realize it at the time.”
He hinted X Factor in USA might return back again as it is right time to do it. He said, “I started to enjoy doing the UK shows again, and then I really felt mentally, physically, this is the right time to do this in the States again,”.
But nothing is sure until the final announcement from Fox or from Simon Cowell is announced. We just hope X Factor USA to return back with new season in 2018. So stay tune with us for more news and updates on X Factor 2018 in USA.

About X Factor USA:
The show begins with initial public auditions conducted by producers only. They go to various cities of USA to look for participants. These auditions are hugely thronged by large number of aspirants. Only a handful of them are lucky enough to receive a Golden Ticket to make it up to the auditions with judges. Now, the chosen candidates get to perform in front of the judges and a live audience and a few of them are selected for the final show. Only auditions with judges are telecasted on television. The contestants selected at auditions are further refined through a series of performances at “bootcamp”, and then at the “judges’ houses”. After going through all these minor challenges, only a small number around 15-17 make up to the finals.
The final winner of the show is announced during the last live show. This winner is decided through public voting which take place via telephone, the Internet, and SMS text voting. The winner is awarded a recording contract with Cowell’s record label Syco Music, worth $5 million in seasons one and two, and $1 million in season three. There have been 13 winners of the show to date: Melanie Amaro, Tate Stevens, and Alex & Sierra, respectively.
Till now, the show has been judged by eminent names like, Paula Abdul, Simon Cowell, L.A Reid,
Nicole Scherzinger, Demi Lovato, Britney Spears, Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio.
