The “UNKNOWN” Factor:- Voices of the Globe


Hello X Factor forum, throughout the last few weeks me and jackel1234 have been trying to come up with a show which incorporates both what the current DS Games are like but also bringing in something slightly different. The show will have 4 judges and a host like most of the gameshows, however there will be a diverse but much needed “selected” panel to help the host on a new stage which has been created. More on that will follow soon. We have finally come up with the format of the show which can be seen below, so take a read.

STAGE 1:- The “AUDIO” Auditions

This is a new way of auditioning the acts for the show, which I think will add a more exciting dynamic to the show. The forum members along with those involved with the show will submit videos of artists who have auditioned on any talent show throughout the world. This can be X Factor, The Voice, Idol, Got Talent, or another singing show.

Each audition will be converted into an audio clip, with no face of the contestant or them speaking, it will be just hearing their audition song. Therefore each judge is basing their decision completely on the person’s voice, and not on a back story they have, because they are on their favourite show etc. The reason for them saying yes should be based on them liking the artist’s voice.

There will be 4-5 Audition Rounds, where the judges will be get to listen toeach audition tape, and will say either a YES or a NO, 3-4 Yes's mean an automatic YES through, 2 Yes's will result in the contestant being put into a “Review” section, where the judges will determine their fate in places need filling at the end of the auditions.

*All Video's will be submitted by the forum member's * When submitting the video please use this format, as it will make it easier for the host.

Name of Contestant -
Category – MALE/FEMALE/GROUP
Country –
Link –

STAGE 2:- The “PITCH”

This is a new concept of the game show, which I think could cause a few heated arguments. We all know that those playing the DS games are very passionate about their acts, and are eager to find out which category they will be getting. However this game show will have teams instead of a category. The judges will have an actual say in who will and won’t be in their team to a certain extent.

The Pitch round will take place just before the judges start picking songs for the much anticipated battle rounds.
The four judges will know exactly who has been put through , and what the talent is like at this stage, however we wanted to get them competing against each other quickly. All those that have auditioned will be divided into MALE/FEMALE/GROUP and each category will have a night dedicated to them, where their audition will be looked at again against their peers. The judges must PITCH to a “selected” panel to why they want a certain act to be on their team. If they don’t want the person they can simply decline to be considered.

However if more than one person wants that person on their team, they must give a brief pitch to why they want them on their team, and it is up to the select panel which judge gets the act. This will be based on a “majority decision.

You may be thinking who is this select panel. Well we wanted the host to be involved more on the show, therefore the host and 2 other forum members who (the host) will pick, will make that decision. This may cause a lot of fireworks, but if you really want that person I’m sure you will give a good pitch for them.

Once the PITCH stage is over, the judges will begin working with their teams individually in the BATTLE ROUNDS.

STAGE 3:- THE BATTLE ROUNDS

Each judge must now pit each of their acts against each other in a battle round either 2 or 3 artists in a group and Pick a song for them both to sing. They will then have to pick one act to progress to the next solo round.

However this is where there can be a twist. If one of the fellow judges think that the judge has made a mistake they have ONE STEAL!

Each Judge has ONE STEAL! This steal must be used wisely though as the act they steal will automatically take one of the 6 Places up for grabs at judges houses.

At the end of each Battle the fellow judges will make their own opinions on the mentors song choices and who they would pick as the winner and why.

Also All mentors will be expected to say who they would pick as their top 6 if they were having the final say.

STAGE 4:- JUDGES HOUSES

As explained above, there will be 6 Places in each category at judges houses, so many may say that there will be 6 Battle's in each battle round. That is NOT the case, There could be more, so the judges at the end of the battle round may have to make the difficult decision of sending home some of their acts even though they won their battle round.

At Judges Houses each contestant will have ONE song they will sing, The mentor will be expected to tell which direction the artist will be taking if they make it to the live shows.

The Judges will they pick 3 acts to accompany them to the live shows.

STAGE 5:- LIVE SHOWS

The Top 12 will be moving forward to the Live shows, where the usual theme's will be assembled. However there are a few little changes being made. Firstly the acts can sing a track which has been written by a you tube artist. It just has to follow the theme of that live show.

Also this time, Judges will not just be commenting on the artists song choice. I would like there to be a little more effort going into the live shows. Once you have done several of these games, you can see yourself making the same comments.

So judges can give comments on their set designs, videos’ of choreography can be submitted and what the artist is wearing also. This will give the judges and viewers at home more of an indication of who the artist is, and may reflect their voting rankings when they see the effort which you have made.

* There will be the usual Sing Off at the end, where an unreleased song MUST be submitted as a sing off performance. This means that the judge must submit a song which hasn't charted or been released as a single*

Myself and jackel1234 will be judges on the show but there is 2 other positions still up for place, so if you want to apply for the show, either comment on the thread, and then send reasoning to why you should judge on the show, and what you could bring to the show.

The applications should be sent to our host who is.......

We need all your help, as it will be you the forum members who will be searching for acts to audition for the show. You can submit you tube videos, which will then be uploaded into an audio clip for the judges to listen to.

If you can't be part of the judging team you can become part of the "SELECT" Panel which the host will put together.

You can therefore listen to the judges "PITCHES" and come to a decision of the team the artist should go into

Pingu what about the select panel to listen to the pitches and help decide the teams. Would you consider throwing your name into the hat for it because I will need names so I can select the best panel to listen to the pitches and would appreciate it if you would put your name forward to be considered for a role on the select panel

Actually not masses it actually won't be starting for probably around 2 weeks as the videos will have to be converted. You will then be sent the audio's in advance to give u time to prepare comments. The Pitch also only has to be a couple of lines, to state who you exactly want and why

Oh no, just when I decided to finally post the launch thread of a new game of mine this thread pops up out of nowhere!

Fair enough, there'll be too many games going on if I post mine now, so I guess I'll hold off on posting it for now. Anyway, back on topic, this looks VERY interesting indeed...

I'll be keeping an eye on this one.

Firstly I would like to extended my gratitude to everyone who has applied for a position in the show. I have narrowed down the judging panel to the required 4 and will reveal them now. Once all the judges have been revealed they will have to answer a few questions which wil be revealed after the last judge is announced

So the first judge on the panel is in fact one of the creators of the show. I have worked with this guy on a few shows and he is a first class guy and mentor and I am sure he is ready to fight and make this competition as hard as he can for the rest of the panel. So please give a huge hand for our first judge

So Barry your officially welcomed to the panel. I am sure you will be looking forward to the audition round to seeing what talent the viewers have sent in so far.

The next judge to make the panel is another guy that I have worked along with on a few shows. I have worked alongside him as a mentor and also as a host on a show. He certainly has the talent to go far into the competition and will be ready to make his team as strong as he possibly can. So lets give a huge welcome to

Jack its great to be working alongside you again and I am sure you will bring it hard to Barry and not make things easy.

So next up we have a very well established mentor and host on the forum. This guy has been in a few different games and whenever I see him mentoring in games he always puts a lot of effort into his acts and tends to always do really well in most shows. So lets make a lotta noise for
