 "LIVE" SHOWS

   The X Factor 2011 "live" shows were screened on ITV1 each Saturday evening for 10 weeks from 8 October to 10 December 2011, with an additional, "final - part 2" on Sunday 11 December 2011.
   From Week 1 (8 October 2011) to Week 9 (semi-final - 3 December 2011), the "live" shows were held at
Fountain Studios, Wembley, London, in front of the four judges and an audience of 300. On 28 June 2011, it was announced that the X Factor 2011 final, in two parts - part 1 on Saturday 10 December 2011; part 2 on Sunday 11 December 2011 - would be held at Wembley Arena, in front of the judges and an audience of 12,500. (The Sun. 28 Jun 2011).
   Each
"live" show opened with graphics and theme tune, similar to that in use of US X Factor (wikipedia.org. The X Factor (UK series 8), and voice-over by Peter Dickson
(wikipedia.org. The X Factor (UK), who also announced the host, Dermot O`Leary, who introduced the X Factor judges, who appeared on stage before taking their seats behind a desk, facing the stage.
   Dermot O`Leary asked one of the judge to introduce one of their acts, who performed, then the four judges commented on the performance. This was repeated, until all four judges, in turn, had introduced one of their acts, who performed and heard comments from the judges. Then Dermot returned to the first judge who was asked to introduce their second act, and so on, until all four judges, in turn, had introduced all of their acts.
   After all of the acts had been introduced, performed, and hear the judges` comments,
Dermot O`Leary announced that the phone lines were open. A brief excert of each performance was screened, together with a phone number for each act, for the public to call to "save" their favourite act - i.e. the acts with the most phone votes would be through to the next week of the competition, but the two acts with the lowest public vote would have to sing again in front of the judges, who would vote on which act to eliminate. (Note: week 1 there was no public phone vote, each judge had to choose one of their four acts to send home).

   Immediately after each X Factor "live" show on ITV1, Xtra Factor was screened "live" from the X Factor studios on ITV2, presented by Olly Murs and Caroline Flack, who spoke to the judges on the X Factor set, took viewers` calls and messages, and, in the Xtra Factor studio, interviewed the contestants.

 "RESULTS" SHOWS

   The X Factor 2011 "results" shows were screened on ITV1 each Sunday evening for 10 weeks from 9 October 2011 to 11 December 2011.
   From Week 1 (9 October 2011) to Week 9 (semi-final - 2 December 2011), the "live" Results shows were held at
Fountain Studios, Wembley, London, in front of the four judges and an audience of 300. On 28 June 2011, it was announced that the X Factor 2011 final, in two parts - would be held at Wembley Arena, in front of the judges and an audience of 12,500. (The Sun. 28 Jun 2011).
   Each "results" show
opened with graphics and theme tune, similar to that on US X Factor (wikipedia.org. The X Factor (UK series 8), and voice-over by Peter Dickson (wikipedia.org. The X Factor (UK), who also announced the host, Dermot O`Leary, who introduced the X Factor judges and their acts still in the competition, before the four judges took their seats behind a desk, facing the stage.
   Before Dermot O`Leary announced the results, there were performances by guests,
and by the acts still in the competition, who performed a number together (except in Week 1 and in Week 3).
In Week 8, all 16 finalists from Week 1, except Frankie Cocozza, sang the X Factor 2011 finalists` charity song, Wishing On A Star, with JLS and One Direction.
   At the start of the third and final part of each "results" show, Dermot O`Leary
announced that the public vote phone lines were closed, was handed a sealed envelope which he opened and announced "in no particular order", the acts who had received enough public votes to go on to the next week`s "live" show and the two acts with the fewest public votes, who would have to sing again in front of the judges. After the two acts had performed, Dermot O`Leary asked each judge which act they wanted to send home. By a majority decision, the act with the most votes from the judges was eliminated. If the judges` votes resulted in a tie, this meant "deadlock" and reverted to the public vote. Dermot O`Leary announced the act with the fewest votes  who was eliminated
: Exceptions: Week 1 - no public vote, each judge had to choose one of their four acts to send home; Week 5 - "double elimination", act with the fewest public votes was immediately sent home, the other two acts in the "bottom three" had to sing again in front of the judges, who each voted for the act to send home; Week 9 and Week 10 - no "sing off" in front of the judges, the act with the fewest public votes was eliminated.

   Immediately after each X Factor "results" show on ITV1, Xtra Factor was screened "live" on ITV2, presented by Olly Murs and Caroline Flack, who spoke to the judges on the X Factor set, and, in the Xtra Factor studio, interviewed the acts.
