X Factor 2022 : everything you need to know

The management The jury The rules and the selection phases The teams

The management

The young woman takes over the reins of X Factor 2022 and talented Francesca Michielin. The winner of the fifth edition of the talent returns to the stage to conduct the new episodes. Her experience of her as a singer and musician allows her to be totally up to the role; her strong empathy for the competitors does not prevent her, however, from remaining impartial.

As every year, the conducting has an essential task during the actual race, which sees the competitors compete in order to decide the winner .

Fedez (XF2022)
The first novelty of X Factor 2022 is the presence of Rkomi (Mirko Manuele Martorana), an Italian singer-songwriter who finds a rebirth thanks to his participation in the latest edition of Sanremo. Perhaps unfamiliar with television life, Mirko is much loved by the public and his colleagues, as well as by the artists who present themselves on stage and perform in front of him.

Rkomi Ambra Angiolini

Ambra Angiolini is the real surprise of this year. She is a singer, actress and television and radio presenter, she proves to be at ease sitting at the table of judges. Nice and playful, she lives the sixteenth edition like a game, demonstrating that she has the right spirit to start this musical competition.

The last member of the jury is Dargen D'Amico (Jacopo Matteo Luca D'Amico), also a rapper and songwriter, as well as a record producer, who is even more popular after his participation in Sanremo 2022. A great friend of Fedez, he is a presence that already sends the public into a frenzy. With a strong sympathy and inimitable charisma, Dargen proves his competence, always with a pinch of irony and sarcasm.

The rules and regulations selection phases

Like last year, X Factor 2022 sees online castings due to the anti COVID-19 regulations. During the summer, the first selection phases follow one another before the real competition, broadcast live starting from Thursday 27 October.


This second phase is actually the first television step . The auditions consist of a single performance in front of the jury and the studio audience, this year in the Allianz Cloud in Milan. The three episodes are recorded on 4, 5, 7, 8 and 12 June and aired starting from 15 September. In order to access the next phase, the aspiring competitor must receive at least three "yes" from the judges.

The Hearings (XF2022, © Virginia Bettoja) The 2022 Hearings see a lot artists propose innovative covers of famous songs. with unpublished and convincing arrangements. The enthusiastic jury is extremely accommodating towards the competitors, so much so that they have to resort to a further intermediate step to activate a total of 48 aspiring competitors.


The most painful step is that of the Bootcamps, often called "the game of chairs", which took place on 25 and 26 June. This phase is accessed after passing the auditions and any skimming. The artists are divided into four teams of twelve, chosen by mutual agreement between the four future coaches. Only five per group can access the next stage, and the selection is done through the challenge of the chairs. Whoever manages to grab one can continue, but until the end the judge can choose to have someone stand up to seat another talent. Another rule is to have at least one band and at least one soloist within the single team.

Last Call

The third and last selection before the Live takes the place of the stage of Home Visit, already archived from the fourteenth edition. Also at the Allianz Cloud in Milan, the five competitors perform in front of their judge, accompanied by another character who helps him in the final choice. Only three participants can officially call themselves competitors of X Factor 2022.

The Judges' Table (XF2022) Live

The real race is broadcast live on Sky Uno starting from 27 October. Every Thursday evening, the contestants perform on stage divided into two groups. The televoting decides who must compete at the end of the episode, to determine who will be eliminated. The two least voted, between the first and second heat, sing one last time in a final play-off and the jury issues the verdict. In the event of a tie and therefore of "tilt", it goes back to televoting. During the episodes, it happens that there are more artists eliminated in a single evening, in order to reach the sixth Live with five competitors: this is the Semifinal.


The seventh and last Live constitutes the Final of X Factor 2022, which four talents access. From time to time, viewers at home choose who to eliminate, again via televoting. After four heats the winning competitor is declared.

The teams

Already starting from the fifteenth edition in 2021, the four teams assigned to the jury are no longer the following: Under Women, Under Men , Over and Band. To create a program that is more inclusive and less tied to a classification based on gender identity, it was decided to create four heterogeneous groups, exclusively following the ideas and projects of the different coaches for their team.
