Janelle's X Factor is the Tengaged version of The X Factor, a show originating in the UK. The series employs a panel of judges who critique the contestants' performances. Each contestant is assigned to one of four categories. The group acts are one category and the others are based on age or gender. Each judge is assigned to one of the categories, and acts as mentor to the contestants in his or her category. They compete with each other to try to get one of the contestants in their category to win the competition, thus making them the winning judge.

The show has received numerous awards and nominations, including seven TOGA nominations, of which it has won one for Best Up and Coming Group.
