Janelle's X Factor is an American television music competition to find new singing talent. The seventh season is set to premiere on Tengaged on July 8, 2013. Three members of the judging panel from the previous season: IceIceBaby, joshg222 and Diva1, had left the series to pursue other ventures. Janelle_Pierzina, Weetmaster and LUPIE returned as judges for their respective sixth, second and first series. IceIceBaby did not return and was replaced by Mybash_, who returned to the show after departing following season 4 in March 2013.

BootcampEdit

The contestants that advanced to Bootcamp from the initial auditions were put through there paces in two tasks that would test them to the fullest, and seperate the good from the great. At the first task, the acts were split into their categories and asked to perform a song. The judges then scored each performance out of 10, the 12 highest scorers from each category would move onto task 2. At the end of this round, 17 acts were cut. 

On the second part of Bootcamp the Top 36 were told they have 30 seconds each to perform and convince the judges as to why they should stay in the competition. At the end of the task 25 acts advanced to judges homes with a further 11 being cut. 

At the end of Bootcamp the judges were given their categories that they would be mentoring for the rest of the competition. Wildcards featured again in the competition. 

  • Young Adults - LUPIE
  • Overs - IceIceBaby
  • Groups - Janelle_Pierzina
