X Marks the Spot This Fall with The X Factor

This fall, one solo artist or music group will have the opportunity of a lifetime: a $5 million recording contract and a chance at fame by competing for the title of The X Factor champion. On Sept. 12, the second season of The X Factor premieres on FOX and features the arrival of judges Britney Spears and Demi Lovato, as well as the return of veterans Simon Cowell and LA Reid.

As one of the most celebrated entertainers and with over 100 million albums sold, many are eager to see how Spears will fare as a judge. She has had plenty of positive things to say about the experience so far.

Fans with Verizon Wireless smartphones can download the Xtra Factor app presented by Verizon for the latest news and action from the show. The app offers exclusive behind-the-scenes content, news, videos, photos and more. It also allows users to engage in real time to earn reward points that can be redeemed for prizes. 

Verizon subscribers with Android devices also have exclusive access to Verizon Touch Voting through The Xtra FactorTM App. Verizon Touch Voting enables customers to cast votes from within the App by simply selecting the image of their favorite contestant during the voting window directly following the live performance shows.

The X Factor premieres tonight and the app is available now for fans who want to check out past seasons and get new content.
