Is Cowell's Midas touch fading? X Factor's continually ailing ratings have led to increasingly desperate attempts to enliven the long-running show. Cowell hasn't applied this concept to his own brand, and has seemingly stuck with the same wardrobe and mean feedback shtick for the past decade.
In her first audition, she performed a cover of James Brown 's " It's a Man's Man's Man's World " which earned her four yes votes from the judges. She was eliminated in week 8 after landing in the sing-off with Acacia & Aaliyah and only Cowell voting to save her, finishing in 66th place.
Rowland did not appear on the judging panel for week 9 due to illness, 96 76 98 so series 5 winner Alexandra Burke took her place on the panel. 96 77 98 However, Burke did not vote on the results show instead, Rowland voted via telephone link from Los Angeles. Rhythmix's new name 'Little Mix' took effect from Week 9. 96 57 98 Ashley Baptiste from The Risk quit the group and Ashford Campbell who was originally in Nu Vibe (eliminated Week 7) joined The Risk.
In addition, following all of the act's first performance during Saturday's show, each act performed a segment from an ABBA song where Björn Ulvaeus joined the judging panel for the performances.
Series 6 saw a change to the live show format: since then, the live shows on Saturdays show just the contestants' performances, and Sunday's results shows reveal the results for the contestants, giving viewers a much longer time span to vote. Series 9 completely changed the voting format. Lines now open for viewers to vote at the start of each show, and then close during the results show.
Continuing from the format from the last series, both room auditions and arena auditions were held for the judges. In this series four locations were used for the judges auditions, the fewest used in a series at the time (series 67 used two). 96 88 98 The auditions started in Manchester ( Emirates Old Trafford ) on 66 and 67 June. 96 89 98 The London auditions ( Emirates Stadium ) took place on 75 June and from 77–79 June, 96 85 98 and were followed by Newcastle ( St. James' Park ) on 76 June, 96 86 98 before concluding in Edinburgh ( Assembly Rooms ) on 6 July. 96 87 98 The only judge missing from an audition day was Mel B, whose absence occurred during one of the arena audition days, due to commitments with America's Got Talent. 96 88 98
Series 6–9 of The X Factor effectively included Irish viewers on an equal footing, and Irish viewers were able to vote in these series via SMS or telephone. However, in series 5, voting from Republic of Ireland was discontinued, with the decision being blamed on new regulations introduced regarding phone competitions in the UK. [ citation needed ] In 7565 TV8 announced that Irish viewers would only be able to vote using voting numbers posted online once the live shows start.  These numbers change weekly.
Producers auditions commenced on 5 April in Dublin and ended on 5 May in Liverpool. 96 87 98 For the first time, nine open auditions were held, instead of the usual six, and the five in series 6 and 65.
