Season 1 (Series 1)
The X Factor made it's debut on September, 4, 2004. The series was created by Simon Cowell and was a revamped version of Pop Idol. The series was hosted by Kate Thornton and kicked off with five open audition shows.

Following the auditions the successful contestants went to boot camp where the judges learned what section of the competition they would be mentoring. The contestants were put through their paces by the judges and each judge had to whittle down the people in their section of the competition to just 3.

The nine acts then went into the live finals with one act being eliminated each week. The two acts with the lowest amount of public votes had to sing again in the final showdown and the judges then decided which of the two acts would be eliminated.

The final of the first series saw Steve Brookstein (mentored by Simon Cowell) competing against G4 (mentored by Louis Walsh). Steve came out on top in the public vote and was crowned the first series champion.
