The X Factor Australia Season 6

SEASON 6 - 2014

The X Factor is an Australian television reality music competition, based on the original UK series, to find new singing talent; the winner of which receives a Sony Music Australia recording contract. The sixth series premiered on 13 July 2014 on the Seven Network. Luke Jacobz returned as host, while Ronan Keating, Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Dannii Minogue and Redfoo returned as judges.

Open auditions in front of the show's producers took place in 13 cities and ran from November 2013 to January 2014. Online and DVD auditions were also held for those who could not attend the open auditions. The auditionees chosen by the producers were invited back to the last set of auditions that took place in front of the judges and a live studio audience. These auditions were filmed at the Hisense Arena in Melbourne on 4, 5 and 6 April, and at the Qantas Credit Union Arena in Sydney on 9, 10, 11 and 12 April.

Filming for the super bootcamp stage of the competition began in late April 2014. In June 2014, it was revealed that Jennifer Lopez would be a guest judge for three episodes of the home visits round to help one of the judges decide their final three acts for the live shows.
