The X Factor is back in 2019 with not one but two new series!

Slightly different from the fifteen seasons that have come before, two spin-offs, The X Factor: Celebrity and The X Factor: The Band both launched on ITV in late 2019.

Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger and a whole bunch of industry experts are on the hunt for the perfect girl or boy band. One Direction, Fifth Harmony and Little Mix all came from The X Factor and now its time to find the next big band.

So, let’s get to know The X Factor: The Band’s Kelli Marie a little more…
