09. 2023

For the first time in Uzbekistan, on September 24 of this year, the popular world show "X-Factor" will launch on the «FTV» channel, organized by «UzReport IA» with the support of the Ministry of Ecology and the Tourism Committee, payment system PayMe, and the transnational company "Procter & Gamble."

For reference, "X-Factor" is a popular vocal talent show that is held in 55 countries around the world. The show has long established itself on the world stage and has become a platform for discovering new talents and launching new international stars.

The FTV channel, owned by UzReport IA, was the first in Uzbekistan to acquire official rights to adapt the international format "The X Factor" in the local market from the British company FreemantleMedia.

Castings of the show were held in the five largest cities of Uzbekistan - Samarkand, Namangan, Bukhara, Khorezm, and Tashkent. About 6,000 people participated in them. After several stages of selection, 12 vocalists will take the stage and continue the battle for the right to be called the country's best performer in live broadcasts of the show.

It should be noted that the fate of new talents will be decided by viewers who vote for their favorite performers, giving them the right to continue participating in the show.

"We are contributing to the development of the media industry in Uzbekistan by setting television trends, working in cooperation with the most popular international formats, and adopting advanced international experience. Producing large-format shows in our country today is a challenge, but only by dreaming big, daring, and not being afraid to experiment will we succeed," commented Ravshankhon Jurayev, General Director of «UzReport IA», on the launch of the show.

At the end of the Uzbek "X-Factor" show, the winner will receive the title of the country's best performer, a reward of 100 million soums, as well as information support and song rotation on the "FTV" channel.

The first episode of "X-Factor" will air on September 24 at 8:00 pm on the "FTV" channel.
