ABS-CBN to air the Pinoy edition of The X Factor

ABS-CBN has reportedly acquired the rights to the interactive reality talent show created by former American Idol judge Simon Cowell, The X Factor.

The Kapamilya network has yet to announce the host and mentor-judges of the Pinoy edition of the said franchise. The show’s format involves spotting singing and dancing talent, appearance, personality, and stage presence. Auditions will be held this month and the schedule and venue will also be announced soon. Looks like this is ABS-CBN’s answer to GMA-7’s Protege.
